Our new home this year has so far been a bit ‘trial and error’ on the festive front. What with having only lived here for just under 7 weeks, and with the living room being the only room downstairs that’s been decorated so far, certain parts of the house are ‘done’ and others are most definitely not!
Our kitchen/diner is in a bit of a mess at the moment, what with mismatched furniture and still a few boxes kicking around, but after we’ve carried out our renovation work in early spring (fingers crossed!) I’m hoping that this time next year this part of the house will look festively stylish too. In here we have some hanging honeycomb lanterns, and what is now the children’s Christmas tree that we let them loose on- my OCD tendancies go into overdrive watching them decorate it, but leave them to it I do!
Our living room is where it’s at though, and due to the big, square bay window in this room we finally have a spot for our big, artificial Christmas tree, which swamped the living room in our old house.
Here are a few Christmassy snaps so far….

As you can see we don’t go for a specific theme in our house, just a little bit of everything we love!
Do you have a decorating theme or is it a bit of a free-for-all?!
