The Secrets Of A Natural Christmas

The Secrets Of A Natural Christmas

Discover the ultimate interior designers guide to a traditional interior design makeover for your home this festive period.

So here we go again! December is definitely here, and we all may feel the pressure (or panic) about the long to-do list.

I can highly recommend a little bit of breathing in between, a little trip out enjoy mother nature and gather some silence, maybe something for your dinner table that day, or a branch to hang your decoration from. Perhaps, consider inviting a professional interior designer over for tea or coffee to discuss how to transform your home into that of Christmas dreams.

There is something quite beautiful in combining the rustic charm of a vintage frame with the natural, fresh smell of the forest and greenery in your home decor.

You can also match patterns and textures such as this Vintage French Ticking Cushion with this Soft Suede Cushion along with other styles available.

On the fallen trees in the forest, you’ll find moss that is so loose, it’s easy to pick and bring home to make into something beautiful. Have a cup of tea and admire your creation as the light disappears and the mood of Christmas in the making fills the house.

Are you bringing anyone on your little excursion, maybe have some cookies ready for a delightful rest and breathe in the smell of nature, wet moss and spruce.

Do you feel the “forest-mood” just by reading this?

I hope you do. Maybe this scenery, where I have aimed to recreate the feeling of being outdoors, will give you some ideas for your decoration. By bringing in the natural light and the smell from nature you can create a harmonious atmosphere. I love earthy colours, for every season, but most of all for Christmas. You can add whatever colour you want, and more lights as the evening get darker.

By using honest materials, such as wool, linen and skins you’ll be amazed at the transformation. Sit back and watch as your home magically becomes warm and welcoming, and the green gifts from nature wrap it all in a heavenly smell.
