Christmas at Home


I was recently asked to write some Christmas styling tips, so I thought I'd share a few last-minute ideas here before the big day tomorrow! My best advice at Christmas is to be true to your own personal style, and surround yourself with what makes you happy. For me, my festive styling is a fairly pared back affair with a focus on quality over quantity. When it comes to decorating the tree, I like sticking with two to three colours for cohesion, and a mix of different materials to add interest. I’m currently loving Nordic paper decorations, which I mix with some wooden ones that I’ve been collecting from year to year. 

With sustainability in mind, Christmas is also a time for creating traditions. I love bringing out the same decorations each year, including those made lovingly by the kids. When it comes to wrapping presents, I use kraft paper (recycled if possible). Not only is it eco-conscious, it’s looks beautifully understated paired with simple black ribbon or string. 

In addition to the tree, I like to place a few select pieces here and there such as wreaths, paper trees and candles. Wreaths made with dried flowers are great for longevity. I brought out last year’s one and gave it a boost with some extra dried flowers and a touch of colour. As you know, I’m also a big fan of sensory styling, and Christmas is the perfect time to create a space that appeals to all the senses. I’m currently loving the Jo Malone London scented candles in Pine & Eucalyptus, and I’m looking forward to filling the house with the smell of Christmas baking!
