Christmas is coming and we all start to think about how we are going to accommodate too many people to actually fit in our homes, what presents to buy and where to hide them, where to put a turkey thats too big for the fridge and of course decorating the house! If you actually think about it, its crazy that each Christmas we go to great lengths to haul huge outdoor trees into our homes, but Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without it.
Well, i’m not sure how to help with the first issues!!! But in regards to decorating the home, how about adding a touch of sparkle without the need for too much tinsel!
Gold, Silver and flickering candles always makes me think of Christmas and if you are lucky enough to have a mantel, hanging a stunning gold/silver mirror and then just draping some festive greenery or adding a few accent pieces – candles or figurines can create an understated less is more Christmas display.
Happy planning from Chichi.
The Bedside Table – not necessarily at the top of your priority list for bedroom furniture, yet a piece that can be the perfect finishing touch to any bedroom. They come in all shapes and sizes, and can pull together the design of a room.
A bed with nothing next to it can look a bit lost, but with a bedside table each side it drawers the bed into the style of the room. They are great for storing those little trinkets, books, pens, tissues and items that you like by your bed, but don’t want scattered around. With a bedside you can lounge in bed with a cuppa and a book with everthing right next to you, rather than placing drinks on floor or window ledges!!
Below is a selection of gorgeous bedside tables from Chichi Furniture.
Ah the lead up to Christmas, everyone is busy busy buying, secretly scurrying home with more and more surprises, but where to store them!! Cupboards are bursting, drawers won’t shut, so how about a stylish ottoman.
Not only is it ideal for storing things, its an incredibly stylish addition to your home. It can also be used as a footstool to rest those weary shopped out feet, or a table, or best of all, extra seating when you realize you have 10 guests for Christmas dinner and only 7 chairs!!
All round its win win with the Ottoman.
