I love decorating for Christmas, I think winter weather is so tolerable until December because of all the sparkly lights! This first photo is my dining room (without any art yet). What I love about the paint colour (BM Natural Linen) is that it really doesn’t change from day to evening (there are so many colours that really look bad in the evening). It’s the perfect backdrop to my sunflower yellow and raspberry colour scheme, I love it!
I have 3 dining chairs with polka dot backs and 3 with stripes to mix it up so I don’t get bored!
This is my entry with some paper whites, an angel and glittery ornament. (I haven’t painted it yet, it’s the old colour still).
Here’s my tree, in the new year I will have an upholstered chair and ottoman made for this corner so for now it’s the Barcelona filling in (it usually sits where the tree is anyway).
Love my raspberry feather wreath!
And some wrapped presents.
Another view of my living room (custom toss cushions yet to come, these are placeholders).
A view of my dining room (from the stairs). I am still looking for a dining table and sideboard.
See the yellow around the closet doors on the right? That was the colour of my entire living/dining room for about 24 hours until the sofa came (way too much). We kept this piece just because you can see a part of the wall when you walk in the front door (I would never specify something like that, it has to be a happy accident :).
