Ahhh Christmas. Is there any other month more wonderful than December?..every day takes you closer to the best days of the year and while we wait we get to decorate our homes and enjoy the festive sights and smells.
I truly love this time of year.
My house is looking suitably festive, I trust yours is too by now. This year I am particularly happy with my festive home.
I have contrasting tastes when it comes to Christmas decor. I love a rustic, country Christmas style decor with natural garlands, greenery and scandi style red and white combinations. But I also adore a faded, frosty look that screams vintage oppulance. The two don't exactly mix so this year I have tried to keep them seperate and only mixed where I feel it looks right...mostly on the tree. I think I've managed to get it right for once...
The living room is rustic, with berry and ivy garlands on the mantle piece, candles and frosted twigs in a vase.
The tree is an ecclectic mix of scandi patterns, reds and whites as well as pinks, ivories and florals (of course).
My bedroom continues the theme with whites, creams and fairy lights.
And when all is decorated, I love to sit back and enjoy the sights by evening candle light..
And those glorious Christmas smells..cinamon, cloves, clemantines..
There definitely is no better time of year.
Happy decorating and thank you for reading.
