Interiors: Getting the spare room ready for guests at Christmas #MyFestiveHome

Christmas is one of my family's favourite times of the year. We love getting together, eating lots of food and snuggling down. This weekend I have my best friend Sarah coming to stay. We haven't decorated the spare room yet so I've done my best to make it Christmassy and comfortable for her (and hide the horrible wallpapered wall). It's been the junk room since we finished renovating our room so it was a huge job to do today!

I put up a curtain of fairy lights and put some sheer tulle fabric over to soften the look. I then popped on my Christmas bedding and popped a poinsettia in an old bronze milk pan from my Nan. I need new Christmas bedding. Mine is very old from Primark. It's tatty and has blurry marks where I once spilt nail varnish remover on the covers (Sorry Sarah, I did my best). I have my eyes on some from Julian Charles including this tartan one and this snow flake throw with furry insides.

These amazing bead-filled bulbs were from ASDA last week! They're battery powered and I have been desperate to find somewhere to hang them. My partner Sam says they're annoying there because Sarah won't be able to sit up in bed!

The bedside table is a cheap second hand one from Argos, which I painted in white eggshell paint and stuck massive diamond handles on! We don't have a matching one for the other side of the bed yet.

This is on the list to decorate soon, but I have set Sam to work decorating the dining room for now. I have sorted out the built in wardrobes with lots of storage, which I am very proud of myself for (see my Instagram Interiors stories for the full Hinch details!)

This post was sponsored by Julian Charles, but all views, photos of my house and items in the room are my own.


  1. Thanks to the author for writing the post, it was quite necessary for me and liked it. I wrote a note on the cvwritingservicesuk about this. I will be happy if you read it and accept it. Thank you for your concern.

  2. It can be said that more and more families are installing smart door locks, which not only allows our overall safety to be better protected, but also solves the problem of forgetting to bring the key.Biometric Smart Lock OEM are not only anti-wear but also anti-violence, and their appearance is much better than traditional door locks.
