My Citrus theme Christmas tree for 2018

How time flies! It’s less than one week to Christmas.

I better get my skates on. Last year, my rainbow tree was a hit, and this trend has even gone mainstream this year, with John Lewis featuring a similar tree.

This year, I was interviewed by Grazia magazine on what my 2018 Christmas tree would look like.

I did mention to Rachel Loos, Grazia’s reporter that I had an idea but didn’t know if I would execute it as I didn’t have the baubles yet.

I told Grazia that I was going to decorate in Citrus tones.

So, Living Coral is Pantone’s colour of the year, and will be big in 2019, but I’ve already done coral for the past couple of years. My living room modular sofa is in that shade.

I felt a new hue, such as yellow, should step out of the shadows.

Who knows? Perhaps yellow may be the Spring colour of the year in 2020? Yellow is so energetic and happy. It’s the perfect colour to see us into the new year.

If you saw my last blog post, you may have seen my new yellow Harper sofa from sofa. com. Here it is again. So here it is! What do you think? I thought the yellow sofa was the perfect backdrop to style my Citrus theme tree against. Despite my last minute decision to do a theme tree, I was fortunate to have Christmas Time UK come to my rescue.  It was easy to find what I needed, as Christmas Time UK is one of the UK’s largest online retailer for Christmas lighting and decorations The yellow, lime and orange baubles on my citrus Christmas tree come in 3 sizes, and they are all shatterproof. I’ve also decided to layer on some tinsel. Tinsel is so fun.  So what do you think of the new citrus Christmas tree Christmas tree?

Hope you like it. I love how my space feels so vibrant and energetic now.

Hope you are all doing well in the lead up to Christmas.

Wishing you a wonderful and joyful Christmas and New Year.

My Rainbow faux Christmas tree and baubles from Balsam Hill.

Can you believe it’s 2 more weeks till Christmas?

London has been magical with the snow today. I’m feeling so festive.

Around this time in December, we as a family, would go out to buy our real Christmas tree.

This year I’ve broken from tradition, as I have decided to get a large faux Christmas tree from Balsam Hill. Rainbow faux christmas tree Ta-dah! Here it is. It’s our very own Rainbow faux Christmas tree. rainbow faux christmas tree What do you think? Very bright and colourful right?   I’ve totally lost count on the number of baubles I had used. Aren’t these blue and purple Georgetown baubles just gorgeous? I must admit, I did feel a bit apprehensive about getting a large faux Christmas tree, but my worries were short lived, as I was totally impressed with how real it looked.

Our tree was a 7 feet Royal blue Spruce with candlelight LEDs. I am now a full faux tree convert, even though I do miss that wonderful scent of Christmas you get from a real tree. Here are more Georgetown baubles from Balsam Hill The colours of my Rainbow Christmas tree really complement my room decor don’t you think?

Gayle Mansfield kindly sent me those A3 sized prints on the wall. Aren’t they gorgeous? My Vitra Eames blanket on the sofa match the gold and burnt copper baubles on the tree. I’m so in love with these turquoise blue and gold Georgetown baubles too. Here’s another view. What do you think of the Lodge faux fur tree skirt in ivory? It reminds me of snow and is so super soft. The tree was so easy to assemble and comes in 3 parts, making it light to carry up and down the stairs. Doesn’t that glow make you feel warm and cosy? So, would you consider a faux tree? I’m so pleased with my Rainbow faux Christmas tree. Now all I need to do is organise myself to wrap the gifts.

Talking about gifts, I’ll be posting my last minute Christmas gift guide on the blog this week. Can’t wait to show you.
