Well, the halls are decked and my tree is up and it is starting to look a lot like Christmas.
Every year I have a secret longing for a minimalist white and silver Scandinavian vibe...
But I realise that would involve a complete house make over! There is too much colour on my walls, too much dark wood and too many textures for me to ever achieve white or minimalist... but I can dream.
There are lots of white lights and candles though and I'm lucky enough to have the perfect bannister for decking with greenery.
The tree does sort of match the decor in the living room, with the gold and red baubles banished back to the loft and only the silver and mauve remaining.
However, the look is somewhat ruined by the cluttered bookshelves behind!
But at the end of the day this isn't a showhouse it's our home and we quite like the colour. And let's face it... I'm never going to be a minimilist sort of girl no matter how much I dream!
