    Budget-busting Christmas dining room update

    by  • December 22, 2010 • Desirable dining • 1 Comment

    No time? No money? No problem! Ideal Home‘s cash clever decorator has some great tips for updating your dining room for Christmas if all that money has gone on your kids’ gift list! I love this modern take on Scandi-chic, and I love even more, that it won’t break the bank!

    Here are some cost-friendly tips:

    1) Instead of a runner, use long lengths of ribbon to give a white tablecloth a festive touch

    2) Paint a picture frame (without the glass) and stick a silhouette decoration to it.

    3) Transform dining chairs with personalised chunky metal letters tied with red ribbon. These designs only cost a tenner from Emily Readett-Bayley!

    Festive Fetish: Foliage and Frost

    by  • December 22, 2010 • Desirable dining • 2 Comments

    Now that’s a lot of F words for one morning!! I really enjoy this idea for festive feasting though (sorry, it’s addictive!) it’s simply stylish, it’s sophisticated and it’s easy to put together if you’re running low on time.

    For a chic country Christmas dining room like this one, white-painted furniture and a nature-inspired subtle wallpaper is ideal, but don’t worry if not – just pack your dining room full of realistic-looking greenery, frosted pine cones and wicker pieces!

    Keep tableware simple, but pile on the sparkle with a mix of silver and white Christmas decorations in a range of textures and finishes.

    Festive Fetish: blue and silver Christmas

    by  • December 21, 2010 • Uncategorized • 2 Comments

    Blue is a great accent colour for Christmas if you’re going for a show-stopping modern look. I love these Christmas decorating schemes from Livingetc – they’re packed with ways to introduce blue into your scheme without making it seem cold and uninviting.

    Save space on your Christmas dining table by hanging your centrepiece above it instead. Strung with baubles and lights, this is a sleek modern alternative to candles and holly.

    Christmas past… doily dining room

    by  • December 21, 2010 • Uncategorized • 2 Comments

    I love this quirky dining room idea… not sure I’d do it myself… but it’s certainly memorable. The ghost of Christmas past meets the ghost of Christmas future as the classic Victorian-style doily meets modern red furniture and accessories.

    To get the look, stitch doilies together in a delicate tablecloth, or use frills on fairy lights for a dramy, dinner-time garland.
