A Livingetc Christmas

Having already dazzled us with their 2010 take on Christmas, I just knew taking a trip through the Livingetc Christmas archives would deliver yet more inspiration. I’m totally gaga about the range of different looks they’ve put together over the years, so I’ve pulled together some of my favourites and added a few decorating tips along the way. If I had to pick a top look it would be the wintry white wreath (above) with it’s proud stag and peek of blue stripe ribbon. That said, it still blows me away how cool a tree can look made out of post-it notes (below). Which of the different looks have you inspired for your own holiday decorating?

    Loving the white cones! In our family we have a tradition to spray them gold and silver, but I am now going to change that thanks to you..! (You may get calls.. πŸ™‚

    Loving the 'card holding canvases' – how fun for a room that needs a bit of a 'holiday lift'.

    All in all. Gorgeous inspiration. Can always count on you my dear!

    I just have to say that your blog is the most “magazine-like” I have ever seen. I mean that in a very much complimentary way, just so you know. Loving it!
