Luxe Christmas Decorating

Posted by on November 28, 2016


My family might just be historically the most un-luxe decorators on the planet.

When you picture my Christmas, picture homemade decorations, lots of trashy tinsel, keepsake decorations that are older than fossils, with plenty of gorgeous kid’s artwork adorning the walls.

The concept of styling a Luxe Christmas was something (my) dreams are made of.

Even the kids were impressed and asked why our Christmas didn’t look like this all the time, to which my eye started to twitch – the answer of “ummmm perhaps because of you guys trashing everything nice that we own?” sprang to mind.

We had an amazing 30 brands involved in this shoot, and for the first time, we had a professional photographer Emma Jade Photography taking our photos.  Emma was a complete natural, and was quite happy to work around me faffing with stuff as we went.

In true busy-mum-of-five mode, I was approaching stores at the last minute to loan furniture for the shoot.  Our fantastic friends at Replica Furniture came through for me yet again, loaning some gorgeous pieces that just belong in my house permanently.

But as per the agreement, we packed them in the car and I waved them off sadly, with only these beautiful images to remind me of our time together.

I hope you enjoy the amazing pics as much as I enjoyed meeting their creators and sellers.

And just in case you were wondering, yes I ate all the Ferrero Rochers and drank all the wine.

Spread out over a few nights of course*


Thanks to everyone involved in this amazing shoot and big thanks to Emma Jade Photography for her time!

She did an amazing job and I didn’t even catch her trying to eat one chocolate. Now that’s professional.
