Christmas table Country Road style

Im so trilled ton share these images I created for this Christmas… simple, natural, creative and distinctly my style.

“When decorating my home for Christmas I always like to stay true to my own style. Living in Byron Bay, I am a nature lover and inspired by both the Australian bush and ocean. My style for decorating and entertaining is relaxed and laid-back but always creative. The colour palette includes neutrals, deep greens and metallic gold accents. Banksia are my favourite native flower and perfect for an Australian Christmas. They look great on the table, in a vase or decorating a wreath. I love to mix old with new, I’m a collector but more and more it’s about the edit, often not adding but subtracting.”

“I like the table to be relaxed and not over styled. I start with a table cloth and smart napery then layer different pieces for interest. In this case I’ve opted for gold cutlery for a festive feel and used native foliage as a centrepiece. I love to make each place setting unique by mixing decorations with natural elements such as leaves and flowers.”

Its getting a little colder, so its time to get cosy at home, but don’t forget about whats underfoot. A rug is one of the best things you can invest in,  your feet will thank you especially in winter, patterned, neural, ethic or colourful theres a rug perfect for your space.

When choosing a rug think about the rest of your space a rug can set the tone of a room, its like an artwork for your floor

“Palo Santo”

It’s no secret I’m somewhat a (modern) hippy – I practice daily meditation with The Broadplace I’m attracted to candles, crystals and burning sage. Well my latest discovery thanks to my friends at Totem Road is “palo santo”  these lovely timber sticks from Peru can be burnt to promote good luck, clean your house of bad energy and enhance relaxation and best of all they smell beautiful
