Gift wrap inspiration

Hopefully by now the decorations are up, and all your Christmas shopping has been done. All that is left to do is to wrap those gifts beautifully. I'm of the school of “brown paper packages, tied up with string” myself. But if you want to make a little bit more of an effort, here are some inspiring images for you to enjoy.

PS: Apologies for absents, my computer has been poorly, and is going to hospital first thing in the new year.

Weekend warmer: Cosy bedrooms

I can think of no better way to start a cold wintery Sunday just before Christmas, than waking up in a cosy and warm bedroom. Ideally it would look like one of these lovelies.

Eclectic mix

This house has such a beautiful mix of eclectic pieces. I always think that personal pieces that tell a story is the key to a successful home, and this home has got a lot of stories to tell. I wish my workspace looked as stunning as this:

Decorating with Christmas greens

Nothing spreads the Christmas cheer like decorating with greenery. In my house Hyacinths and Amaryllis where Christmas staples, and the smell of a real tree can't be beaten. Here are some lovely ways to use natural materials in your Christmas decorations. I love this star wreath, and the ice lanterns are just magical.

Black Christmas magic

I love it when I come across Christmas colour schemes with a difference. And you don't get much more unusual than black mixed with turquoise, coral, purple and burgundy. Now thats what I call a glamorous Christmas!

Frozen landscape

Had a wonderful walk today in the Charlcombe valley just on the outskirts of Bath. Everything was covered in a thick layer of frost with haze hanging in the air. Stunning. Hope my photos can get across some of the splendor.

Christmas at Grasse

The second round of Christmas windows for Grasse. This time I made some Deer heads as props and Jo's (thats the owner of the shop) father made the fireplace. Hope you like them, I was so thrilled with the response on the first Christmas window and my paper garlands.

Weekend warmer: Roaring fires

Oh how I wish I had a fireplace! One of the things that I love the most about going home to Norway in the winter is sitting in front of a roaring fire with a good book and a glass of wine. Heaven! Until I go home for Christmas, these lovely rooms will have to do.
