Decorating the house for Christmas is one of my favourite things to do, so as soon as the first weekend in December is upon us that tree is up, my seasonal candles are burning and the festive bedding is well and truly on. Usually I’ll stick some Christmas tunes on in the background whilst I potter about getting everything in its rightful place and then stick the first Christmas film on and embrace all things Christmas under the blanket! Although I may need to venture out this year and watch Christmas With The Coopers at the cinema (Out Dec 1st), I’ve heard it’s the new Love Actually and I love that film so I’ve got high hopes for this! It follows four generations of the Cooper clan come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday. Ahhhh I’m SO excited!
Anyway, typically I’ll stick to the same colours each year and go with something that goes with the colour scheme in the living room and the above items would fit well with that, mostly anyway! But next year we’ve got this room on the list for decorating. Last year we did our bedroom a nice cool mint, this year one of the spare rooms had a makeover and it’s now beautifully white but next Christmas I’ll have a new living room and I can’t wait! I don’t really know what I want to do just yet, but these living room ideas are giving me lots of inspiration! Homify is a great website, it’s an online platform featuring home ideas and inspiration, interior design, architecture, DIY projects and tips for every room in your house. It’s a bit like Pinterest but specifically just for the home. At the moment the living room is very neutral with creams and browns which I do really like so not sure whether to keep it quite neutral or something a bit more colourful. I do really like grey at the moment though! I guess should probably decide soon though so I can get some decorations for next year in the sales!
When will you be putting all of your Christmas decorations up? What’s your colour scheme?
