Hey folks! How are you? Hope you’ve had a good few days wherever you are in the world? I thought I’d drop in with a few snaps that from my Christmas break back at home in The Cotswolds. Returning to my childhood roots has been just the antidote to the fast pace daily life of London that I had been craving. I’ve shared a wonderful Christmas with my close family, cherishing those little moments that make life so special. From taking my Gran to church at midnight on Christmas eve, to walking through serene, misty countryside, I feel replenished and relaxed. I’ll be back again soon but until then I’ll leave you with these pictures I took from a walk I took on Boxing Day; the organic textures and colours of the woods and fields left me so inspired, I hope they’ll let you escape your daily routine for a minute or two as well.

Thank you all for your support of Bright.Bazaar over the past year, it’s been a delight engaging with many of you and being part of such a welcoming community where we can all share our daily inspirations. To readers new and old, have a very merry and bright Christmas! And to those who don’t celebrate, thank you for your readership as well. I’m going to take a few days break to spend time with my family, so I’ll leave you to scroll through my favourite 2011 links from some really wonderful blogs. Have a good one, folks!

As I wind down on the approach to the Christmas break (hurrah!) I couldn’t help but feel inspired by these simple and colourful ideas for adding last minute festive decor touches from Mr. Jason Grant. I love how festive a scrap of ribbon placed in a clear, glass jar can feel (not to mention how quick it is to do!)  and hanging baubles from ribbons is something I did in this Christmas shoot last year but I think they also look great when hung from a chandelier. My favourite idea is the pared back, brown paper crackers placed upon a striking red rimmed plate. Simple pieces accessorised sparingly with colourful brights makes for wonderful Christmas decor. Which idea is inspiring you, friends? Do you have any top tips for last minute holiday decor?
