Using oversized baubles to decorate the front door makes a simple but elegant statement.
A convincing faux fir bough will outlast the real thing for years to come and can be dressed or use au natural, just as you would a fresh branch.
The pre-lit Christmas tree is from Marks & Spencer and the traditional gold baubles are from Selfridges. The garland and the vintage print wrapping papers are from The White Company, while the decorative cushion can be found at Rowen & Wren
A mix of decorative and white tableware on a soft grey background adds a sophisticated note to festive dining. Personalising place settings with a small gift is a thoughtful finishing touch.
A banquette is a smart seating solution that works well for formal and family dining. The antiqued glass panels add further elegance.
The bespoke banquette seat is from Ben Whistler and the Camargue chairs are from Oka, while the tablecloth and napkins can be found at Volga Linen. The antiqued mirror panels are made to order at Dominic Schuster, and the pendant light is from The French House
Rich charcoal walls and flooring supplemented by soft golden accents in the form of rugs and occasional tables create an inviting seasonal glow. A combination of fairy lights and flickering candles infuses the scheme with a natural warmth and character.
The walls are covered in Manila Hemp in graphite from Phillip Jeffries at Architectural Textiles, and the wool rug is from Luke Irwin. The coffee table is from Julian Chichester and the bronze-finish drum table can be found at Ecco Trading, while the grey studded armchair is from Graham & Green. Find the brass bowls at The Conran Shop
Wrapped in a mix of silver and gold papers and finished with vintage-style baubles, Christmas presents can make an artful display.
The dotted wrapping paper and antique bauble are from The White Company, and the silver paper and the shiny gold wrap can be found at Paperchase. The curled paper tree and the gold leaf prints are both from Anthropologie
