The time flies so fast and Xmas time is coming very quickly. I'm returning from inspirational sunny Australian interiors to our cold Europe. However I'm preparing my home for the hot decorating season :)
I guess my Christmas will traditional a little, and playful a little. Why? It is difficult to forget the tropical vibes but on the other hand our traditional Xmas colors are very bright. My choice include vibrant red for the accessories in 2016. This will be complemented by white petals of fresh flowers and silver glitter of decorations. The perfect match will be deep green color of evergreen branches.
However my playful key accent is a new plant. Instead of a traditional Xmas tree I have a wonderful little tree which reminds me hot countries. It is ficus lyrata, also called fiddle leaf fig. I have adored this plant since this post. Now I'm very pleased with the plant styling as it combines what I love most: natural baskets with a beautiful green little tree.
I added even more green: one of my cushions, my DIY (painted wooden box and an old Ikea basket), books with new green covers.
Now I have a base ready for adding more and more Xmas decorations week after week.
