By now you might have guessed that we are super stoked for Christmas – *shhh our tree is arriving today – so when I was offered the chance to attend The Ideal Home Show at Christmas I knew it was going to be fun. Think Interiors meets Christmas meets fake snow and you have a good idea of what it's all about. I headed up to London with F and Fritha for a fun day out and it didn't disappoint.

F could hardly contain his excitement as we approached the entrance to Earls Court, with its Christmas trees, snow machine and Santa in a sleigh – although I was trying to explain that this was Santa's helper stepping in for the day, what with the Lapland trip coming up and all!
Inside we found plenty of Christmas stalls selling their festive wares, carol singers and the smell of cinnamon and mince pies filled the air. After spending ten minutes trying to prise F away from the Ice Skating rink situated in the middle of the show and the stage where Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen was dressing Christmas trees, we managed to have look around and get inspiration from the Christmas Interiors.

I loved their room sets especially the scandinavian theme Lumiere by Mathilde Kubisiask Design with this Kubus candlestick holder which I've had my eye on for a while now as well as this chair *swoon*. As much as I'm a fan of scandinavian interiors I was also drawn to these darker rooms sets which had a touch of luxury to them, and I'm still on a look out for a bar trolley of my own!

What would be your ideal Christmas decor?

  1. Wow! Lots of gorgeous stuff! I'm not sure I could define a single style for my Christmas decor. We're extremely eclectic but love lots of bold colours and what I call "pleasing clutter". :)

  2. Oh really wish I had got to see you but sounds like you had a really good time and I bet F loved the snow and ice-rink. It felt really festive inside there :)
