How I decorated our previous homes for Christmas - Day 2


Victorian Semi

Evening All

Welllllll ....... in my last blog, I promised I'd show you a little bit more of our previous home - so here you go .......

I know - how indulgent was that putting a tree in the bedroom ?????  But if you have the space, it is truly such a lovely thing to do ...... what could be nicer than an early night with a good book, a cup of cocoa and a tree with twinkling lights in the background - soooooooo delightful :)

Style wise, I felt the period style of this home suited a fairly opulent finish with chandeliers and velvets mixed in with simple linen curtains.

Ok then - as well as stars, signage, giant Ampersands  and vintage typewriters I seem to have a wee bit of a thing for bunny rabbits too - we're diverse here in Natural Calico if nothing else :)

This is another kitchen which we designed ourselves and sourced the component parts separately - I love hand painted units and it's an economical way to do this - I described a little about this in my previous blog "our economical hand painted kitchen".

This time I went for a very soft duck egg tone and dark wooden worktops for a little change. The metro tiles and range cooker give an urban edge to an otherwise country style kitchen. 

For the Christmas decorations, I added little splashes of traditional reds - nothing too overpowering as the space wasn't huge.

It was such a lovely little dining area for breakfast and lunch. We can source these tables to order and currently stock the stools in Natural Calico.

Is anyone starting to feel the Christmas spirit yet ???? I'm beginning to get there - time to hit the wonderful Christmas market in Belfast - me and my Chums have a wee ritual ...... check out the stalls - buy loads of gorgeous Marseilles soaps for stocking fillers - and then find a spot in the Beer Tent :) Very civilised don't you think !!!

All for now
