I am missing dressing my shop windows for Christmas this year. But…. I am loving being at home more. Anyone who knows me will tell you if I wasn’t dressing parties, I’d be dressing homes instead. Love a bit of interior design. And with the season’s festivities fast approaching, plus December’s edition of Living Etc magazine now out, and my lovely house, I’m officially ‘on one’. So on this, the 1st day of December 2016, to celebrate the start of opening chocolate advent calendars and the season of over indulge, I’m launching Think Bubble’s Christmas at No. 27 (#tbchristmasatno27). Starting with my Entrance Hall at No. 27…
I like a mix of styles. It’s Christmas so a bit of glitzy, bling is obligatory. But I do like an edge. Our canvases are courtesy of http://www.photobox.co.uk and the talents of some Ashford graffiti artist somewhere. Two fabulous works of art don the concrete walls of a subway near the Ashford International Station. My I-phone and Photobox did the rest. They’re quite pixelated, but I quite like their rough and ready graininess. Mixed with our pair of silver gilt mirrors (couldn’t just have one, I had to have two – plus they were a complete bargain from http://www.therange.co.uk) I just like it. Beautiful frosty garlands from http://www.giselagraham.co.uk decorated with glittered stars and white and silver baubles, beads and pearls, set the tone.
And then of course there’s Bruce. Bruce the Moose. Love Bruce. Purchased on a whim from http://www.oliverbonas.com but whenever we look at moving, there now always has to be a place for Bruce, otherwise the house isn’t even a contender.
And of course, I have to have bubble balloon. You can’t have any celebration in this house without featuring a beautiful, bespoke, confetti-filled bubble – heavily. www.thinkbubbleparty.co.uk/product-category/confetti-filled-bubbles/
So, one room down, the Kitchen/Dining Room next…Then the Lounge – although we are currently building the OOO BAR in there at one end (don’t ask!). Theme – Cocktails & Candlelight at Christmas. Haha! We don’t do things by halves, bet you can’t wait for that!
