December is finally here and that also means Christmas!
Even though we’re now in a larger home, I’ve still not bought a full size Christmas tree for the house. As lovely as it would be, it does take a while to set up for just the two of us so we’ve kept to our usual ‘Christmas corner’ and bought a small tree instead.
Red is my least favourite interior colour but there are two exceptions in the year where I let a little bit of it trickle into the house – Chinese New Year and Christmas. I’m surprisingly quite a traditionalist at Christmas and I love a bit of red when adding festive cheer around the home!
How have you decorated your home this year? What colours have you used?
I can’t believe how quickly another Christmas comes around – let the countdown to the holidays begin!
Being the neat freak that I am, I’ve really never liked having notices on the fridge. The paper gets in the way when you’re opening the doors and it looks really messy which drives me insane!
So in a bid to combat this issue, I’ve rearranged all the things on our fridge onto a black metal board in in the hallway next to the intercom – and I actually think it’s working out!
I spray painted the metal board black and stuck it to the wall using 3M adhesive strips for picture frames. Then I just got some basic envelopes, labelled them and organised everything into neat little bundles so that it’s easy to find – pretty simple, right?
I’m going to have to create a 2nd one for the laundry area for all the random pieces like takeout menus but at least all the important things are organised for now…
Finding the right artwork for our home is proving to be a really difficult task – it’s either expensive and beautiful or affordable yet not quite right.
In a bid to end our torment in finding some art for home, H. decided to try and make his own geometric poster to fill our art void. He’s quite proud of his efforts and wanted me to post this on the blog to share with you – what do you think?
It’s a bit different to what I imagined the art would be around our home but we’re happy to have this as a temporary fix around the house until we can buy something that ticks the boxes!
