I am feeling completely inspired by the images from the new Ralph Lauren home collection for Designers Guild – it is called Left Bank and frankly if the fabrics are as good as the pictures, I can’t wait to get my hands on them – or indeed a pair of googles for my dog…..

In complete contrast to my restrained and tasteful White Christmas blog (see November 6th) I now bring you a colourful, festive and frankly unashamedly gaudy festive ideas – really, what is not to love?

Hang these deliciously colourful Christmas stars from The Contemporary Home on your tree, in the window or anywhere else you can find – the more the merrier!

Some of you are going to love these angelic little feather birds from Petra Boase, and others of you are going to hate them! Personally I love them. And they would be perfect clipped to the branches of your Christmas tree.   

From the same company, these paper ball garlands are an updated version of the paper chain classic. Pick your colours from 17 available and use as many as you can!

  

For a burst of festive colour, hang these woollen baubles from The Contemporary Home on your tree, or better still, in a cluster on their own for maximum impact.

Two wonderfully colourful and ever so slightly disco bauble options from Graham and Green – if you can’t pick between them, put both on the tree, in as greater quantity as you can manage!

And finally, there is no reason that your front door shouldn’t be as splendidly colourful as the rest of your house and this Christmas wreath from Habitat fits the bill perfectly.

Happy Christmas decorating!

It’s an oldie but a goodie! North by North West is still a great film after all these years and the Vandamn House which features towards the end of the film is created in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright and is a cracking example of Modernist interiors. Tragically it is a film set and not a real house – but we won’t let that spoil a good story.
