Oh, boy! This home is SUCH a festive treat! Owned by couple Mille and Christine, who holiday there with their two girls, the home shows how simple, organic elements can make for a charming, sophisticated and understated Christmas decorating scheme; this quite ironic given the home was originally built as a summer house! The couple decorate with vintage ornaments and family pieces handed down from generations before them, which gives the space a personal and welcoming feel. Despite extending the home, I like how the couple have maintained the building’s original character, such as the light wood floors, adding colour through the barn red doors inside and the black doors outside. As for that natural festive tablescape: isn’t it just beautiful? What do you like about this wonderfully festive home?
Country Style | Photography by Craig Wall
The moment I set eyes on this beautifully styled shoot in Country Style magazine I knew I would eventually wax lyrical about it over here on Bright.Bazaar! First off, the shoot includes the excellent Whitby wallpaper by my buddies over at Mini Moderns. I can see why they used the paper in the shoot because it’s teal-like colour way (affectionately named Washed Denim by the MM chaps!) works perfectly with the overall theme. The rustic wooden surfaces, eclectic mix and match glass jars and beautifully patterned tiles all combined to create an inspiring series of images that demonstrate top notch composition. Whether it be for how one decides on the tiles for a kitchen splash back or the new wallpaper for a guest bedroom, I think there are some great ideas here that can be used when cataloguing our own decorating inspirations at home. What inspires you about this colour-led shoot?

1. I bought some bowls from Anthropologie in the sale and they look great with these measuring spoons!
2. The beautifully packed (and very colourful!) cards by Nina Hutton made me smile.
3. These circus light signs I saw in Primrose Hill are perfect for a Mr. Bazaar home!
4. Please may I move into number 26?
5. The star-shaped Christmas lights strung across Regent St, London are beautiful.
6. I felt super cosy in my winter knitwear on a Saturday morning walk.
7. How fun are these hand illustrated Christmas cards by Charlotte Cooke? They are one of my favourites I’ve seen this year!
8. This festive cushion from H&M Home has a timeless feel to it; perfect to bring out year-on-year.
9. I’d be happy to find this smartphone dock in my stocking on Christmas morning!
10. I found the socks I’m going to wear on Christmas day!
