It's December! As this is our first year living together for Sam and I, we have become very excited about making the best Christmas house! So far we have only done the lounge but I will go around slowly Christmassing up the place and hopefully share it with you as I progress. I thought I'd share with you how I have decorated. Our theme was cream and gold, but I managed to sneak some red in too!
Obviously we have a tree! This is the first year we've used a fake tree because we heard puppies who like to chew can get poorly, and our Teddy loves to chew! This is one from Homebase and it's 8 foot tall. I got it reduced from around £200 to £20 a couple of years ago after Christmas. We decorated it with white lights and the cream and gold ribbon and agreed it was probably enough, but I just HAD to add a touch of red. On top is an old family angel who I love. Also I put my huge IKEA star in the window
plus the bauble I made!
I managed to convince Sam to help me paint the chimney breast before we decorated. This paint colour is called Ming Dynasty from Valspar at B&Q. It is the perfect deep, peacock blue I have been searching ages for
I decorated the fireplace with the bunting I made, a garland from Garson's Garden Centre wrapped in gold and cream ribbon and battery powered fairy lights which were only £2 at ASDA
I also had a navy and red deer throw from Primark to chuck on the sofa. Yes my lounge colour scheme is royal blue and Raspberry. It works in real life.
And finally I dressed our animals up for Christmas! Button wore and hat and Teddy wore a little jacket
