It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… In fact, I had my Christmas tree trimmed and perky on the first Advent Sunday. I already showed you how to prepare a floral themed Christmas decor by making moodboards that define the style and colour scheme. The floral wrapped gifts were revealed earlier this week. So now […]

Christmas Trend: A pared down Christmas decor

I’m in the midst of decking the halls, what about you? For Dutch standards I’m super early, but for American and British standards I’m either spot on, or a week late.
