7 Simple Christmas Styling Ideas For Festive Instagram Pictures

‘Tis the season for…..doin’ it for the ‘gram! Chances are if you read my blog you are either one of two things (or both): an interior fanatic who loves changing things up at home and / or addicted to interiors on Instagram. There is nothing like a bit of festive inspo on Instagram when it comes to this time of year (although the vast amount of ‘Christmas In November’ on Insta this year has rightly had a few people shudder in horror.) This Christmas I was lucky enough to collaborate with House Of Fraser, styling a few of their Christmas collections in my home

DIY Advent Calendar Indoor Wreath

I was recently commissioned by the chocolate company Green & Black’s to create some Instagram Christmas content with their Miniature Bar Collections. I decided to create an indoor wreath which also doubled up as a DIY advent calendar, as this way I was creating something decorative for the home as well as it having a function! This is the end result below, which I was quite happy with as it looked quite pretty and filled the house with the smell of eucalyptus.

Trees & Baubles: My Home At Xmas

Well hello and welcome to this years 'My Home At Xmas!' I can't quite believe it but this year is actually the first Christmas since my living room has been painted blue. The Xmas scheme for 2017 therefore had to match the new walls, so I am delighted to have partnered up with Balsam Hill this year as part of their 'Trees & Baubles' blog hop.

Classy Christmas - The Best Xmas Decor & Homeware for Interior Lovers

In recent years there has been a real focus on the kitsch of Christmas: Flamingo and Pineapple baubles, the 'return' of tinsel as an acceptable Christmas decoration, and let's not even get started on the abundance of drinks trolleys. Yet decorating your home at Christmas need not all be about trend-led decor. Instead, I've picked out my favourite Christmas decor and homeware items which fall under my category of 'Classy Christmas'. These pieces may not be the cheapest, but they are beautiful, investment pieces that will stand the test of time and you'll lovingly get them out each winter for years to come. They also make the absolute BEST presents for interior and design lovers at Christmas.

Make Your Own Traditional Christmas Door Wreath

I'm delighted to be part of the #swifthomehacks campaign this year! When Swiftcover asked me to share a couple of simple Xmas DIY'S, I knew I had to share how to make a traditional Chirtmas door wreath.  The Christmas  wreath,  like  the  tree,  for me is  a  classic,  integral  part  of  xmas  décor.  I  take  huge  pride  in  my Christmas  wreath,  as  everyone  sees  it  as  they  pass  your  home.  It's also the  first  thing  guests  see  when   they  arrive  for  celebrations!  The  thing  is,  a  pretty  Xmas  wreath  can  often  cost  more  than  buying  the Xmas  tree!  Go  to  a  florist  and   you'll  be  looking  at  £100+  for  anything  detailed.  Even  local  flower markets  charge  a  good  £30-£40  for  a   basic  'real'  wreath  base  with  no  frills.  Yet with  a  bit  of  prep,  a bit  of  foraging  and  a  glue  gun,  you  can   create  a  really  professional-­looking,  real  Xmas  wreath  for  less than  £20.
