I live by the rule that it is totally acceptable to start Christmasifying your space from the moment December begins. Luckily for me, I’ve grown up with a mum who went from fashion to interior designer, and a huge part of my love for interior design and decoration comes from her. We have always been the two people in my family to talk interiors, re-arrange furniture, get excited by homeware stores, flick through the pages of interiors magazines, and when it comes to Christmas, we are the first to decide on how we want to spruce up our home in an elegant and enchanting way! And so, it has become a tradition for us to make an early morning trip during the first week of December to Covent Garden Flower Market to pick up an abundance of evergreen, ivy and white poinsettias. That’s exactly what we did this morning and I wanted to show you all the finished look. I’ve never actually grown up with Christmas trees or anything specifically Christmassy around the house, but I like to think of this as our own little way of turning our house in to a cosy wintery wonderland over the holidays. As you can see, we both seem to gravitate towards decorating the mantlepieces. The fireplace is usually the focal point of a room, and if you want to make the most of the space to create a decorative look, then I think this is a great way. It always looks so effective! We simply arranged the greenery so that it was hanging off from different points and incorporated candles in various sized tall glass holders. It is always so uplifting to have a room filled with nature and seeing so much fresh foliage against the warmth of the candles and fireplace gives such a cosy and festive feel.
