Its almost December and its all beginning to look a little festive outside. The weathers icy cold and we're all wrapping up warm and worried about the heating bill at the end of the month.
The Christmas lights have decked the streets and the shops are starting to play christmas music so I suppose its time to start decking out the house for the holidays!
The cold weather at this time of year always gets me down so I'm desperate to start the festive activities and cover any cold gloomy feelings in fairy lights and glitter!
So I've shopped & searched to pick out my favourite homeware & holiday decoration ideas to inspire me to be a little more creative with my decorations this year! I hope you find inspiration in them too..!
Keep reading to see what I found.... (or just look at the photos !!)
If you follow us on Instagram (@saltandco) You may have seen my recent festive photos featuring some Christmas tree decorations I made last year. I found a load of fur cones, dipped them in PVA and rolled them in fine glitter and attached brown string to hang them from my tree. They actually looked so beautiful and added the perfect natural touch to my tree I wanted. I just love that rustic christmas look.
You can also use fur cones as beautiful church candle surroundings like this- So simple but gives a lovely effect!
I'm not huge on bright colours or twee christmas decorations, I like to keep it simple and just add a little sparkle. I love these rustic, wooden star decorations - They're so festive and I love the idea of having them hung in an outside tree decked with fairy lights!
Following my love for stars, I found this gorgeous silver effect star in Wilkinsons
This textured standing ornament is only £8.00 and will add a subtle hint of christmas to any room.
In this bitterly cold weather you need to stay cosy at home! I absolutely love this heart log basket from The White Company
Its also well out of my price range but how could you not love it?
One thing on my Christmas wishlist this year is this stunning cutlery set from NEXT Home! I love the simple printed hearts in the base, so minimalist and cute.
Another thing I'm loving from NEXT is their 'Cosy Shop' within their bedding range.
This collection is full of luxurious faux furs, cosy fleece finishes and other snuggly must haves to keep us warm on these cold winter nights!
I am also obsessing over (surprise surprise) The White Company Christmas Collection. There is something that is so irresistible about The White Company (and its not the prices... eek) But the luxurious feel, the crisp finishes and the timeless look they deliver every season.
This year I have particularly fallen in love with the Penguin Stocking (far right in image below) They also do a matching stuffed toy penguin to match... How cute!
The White Company currently have 20% off everything right now as part of their Black Friday Event. Go mad with your Christmas wishlist by using code AP380!
I love the idea of putting my tree in a rustic zinc pot/bucket or a basket and this image from Pinterest is even more gorgeous with a touch of faux fur! I could do this with a £10.00 Ikea Faux fur rug and an old wicker basket!
No matter what your home looks like, I'm sure you will all enjoy your Christmas and I hope you love decorating your home as much as I do!!
Love, Martha x
