10 November '17: Early Christmas

Anyone who knows me knows my view on Christmas decorations: why wait til Christmas? New research reveals that 57 per cent of Brits put their decorations up early – as early as September, in fact. That’s why I’m not going to make any apologies for giving you a Christmas shelfie in November. I decided to show how Christmas doesn’t have to use conventional festive colours. The idea came to me when @etsyuk sent me these gorgeous @rocketandfoxplywood fir trees. With those colours fixed in my mind, I scouted around and found some vintage Penguin books to match, put them together with an Amish tin star, my trusty @frompaperchase baubles in a hydrangea ‘tree’ and set them against a @farrowandball #Radicchio wall. More decorations to come soon. Now I’ve started, I just can’t stop…
