Signing off for Christmas now with a few festive snaps from around the house. As a stylist/homes journo, a huge amount of my year seems to be taken up with Christmas features and shoots, more often than not focusing on a particular festive theme. So when it comes to Real Christmas, I love nothing more than gathering up my favourite all-time decs – a mixture of family heirlooms that predate me to the selection of ‘new’ favourites, of which I always add a few extra to each year, all flung together in a somewhat kitsch explosion that inevitably seeps its way beyond the tree and on to mantlepieces, existing dead twig arrangements, kitchen cupboards, windowsills…
New to the fold this year include my fantastic flying flock reindeers and ‘Joy’ from Johnny Egg, and my freshly-beloved ceramic origami penguin from Paperchase (who’s soooo staying out on display post Crimbo). I’ve even (shhh – don’t tell the Style Police) incorporated a bit of tinsel into non-tree-based displays – but it’s actually vintage tinsel, so that makes it alright, innit.
Here’s wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, thanks for reading!
