For those of you who, like me, relish in decorating and treat gift wrapping like a national sport, Christmas is one of the most enjoyable times of the year – the paper, the wreaths, the ribbon, the fact that you don’t need an excuse to host (and style) a dinner party or entertain family and friends – it’s just all too good.
Styling our home for the festive season is simply an extension of the existing decor and my personal taste. I prefer solid colours over patterns and tend to keep to shades that are raw and organic over traditional Christmas colours. When deciding on your palette, I recommend taking cues from your existing colours, furniture, and accessories. This way the tree, gifts, and table will blend in seamlessly into your space, instead of competing for attention and looking out of place. Pinterest is a great tool for collecting ideas and viewing colour options that may work for you and your home. I have a board dedicated to Christmas styling which you can view here.
