Our Christmas Decor Style for 2018

This is a collaborative post.

When it comes to home decor and styling, I am the queen of mix and match. The proud leader of the cosy brigade. The mistress of colour (unlike my wardrobe I might add!)

I’ve been slowly getting ready for Christmas for the past few weeks. I wouldn’t say we’re ‘there’ yet to be honest with you. The tree has been the little monster’s domain. Lots of baubles on the same branches, I’m kinda diggin’ it actually. I’m definitely in the ‘they can stay there’ camp anyway.

I’ve started blocking out the cries from the boyfriend of ‘THAT is not a festive tree‘ because he’ll soon come around when it’s finished. I can tell he’s already warming up to it actually but he’s hasn’t let the guise slip as of yet.

We’ve managed to misplace some of our favourite baubles so I’ve got to go on a hunt for them across the next few days and hopefully we’ll be done and dusted by the weekend. I’m really excited for everything to be sorted so we can relax in our quirky living area — the perfect mish-mash of the traditional and the modern.

I’m delighted to be working with Desenio again this month (you may remember that we teamed up for my office/creative room makeover a few months ago?) and they’ve helped to jazz up our living room with two gorgeous feature prints by Elisabeth Fredriksson. I absolutely adore them!

Nothing says homely like a crocheted blanket and I’ve got a teeny tiny obsession with them. I picked this up in a charity shop for just a few pounds and it’s like a comfort ‘blankie’ for grown-ups.

All three cushions are from the current seasion over at NEXT so you should be able to pick them up fairly easily if any of them have grabbed your attention — Blame It On The Dog Cushion £12 / Christmas Car Cushion £14 / Beary Christmas Cushion £16.

If you like the little star garland, it’s actually made from wooden lolly sticks and it’s super easy to make your own.

I’d highly recommend Desenio for quite a few reasons, based on my own personal experiences:

(1) Delivery is quick and you’re kept well-informed throughout the process;

(2) The frames and prints I received were sufficiently packaged and arrived in pristine condition;

(3) It’s easy peasy to discover prints that compliment each other to create stunning collections and gallery walls;

(4) The quality of the prints are impeccable and look much more expensive than they actually are!

The two prints I chose retail at £21.95 each for the biggest size (from £6.95) and the gold frames in the largest size (50 x 70cm) are £22.95 each.

Tapestry Picture with Tinsel

We picked up this fabric wall hanging from Totnes Market back in September for just £10. Is there anything that can’t look Christmassy with a dash of tinsel?

Our Christmas tree this year is twiggy-style and prelit with white, bare branches. I’m quite tempted to use if for other seasonal occassions although we do have a similar, smaller tree already. As I said before, it isn’t full of decorations yet (despite what you might think!) and I’ll pop a picture up over on my Instagram when it’s finished.
