Christmas Room Decor

Icicle Lights - Argos

We take Christmas decor very seriously in my house. Everything is a gorgeous mix of sumptuous burgundys, brushed golds, aged pewters and rich greens and we have built-up an impressive collection of decorations over the last ten or so years. Since I am spending so much time working in my bedroom at the moment, I decided to extend the holiday spirit into my own space. I wanted it to feel warm and cosy without taking away from the white-on-white-on-white theme I have going on in here. I thought I would show you the few additions I made to make my room a bit more festive!

 Diptyque Épice // Tea Light Holders - Tiger

Candles are the obvious choice to Christmas-ify your space. I had been thinking about the Diptyque candle in Épice since we got a sneak peek at the Christmas event a few weeks back and, with N.Dulge points idling on my account, I decided to treat myself to the mini version. I don't generally spend so much on candles but, this one literally smells like Christmas in a jar and I can't recommend it enough. The scent fills the whole room, even long after its been extinguished, without being overwhelming. The mercury glass-effect tea light holders are bargains from Tiger - when the flames start flickering through the glass they throw the most amazing shapes around the room!

Duvet cover - Dunnes Stores // Heart pillow - Penneys // Plaid pillow - IKEA

Ugh - sorry about how grainy this picture is. Note-to-self; don't rely on fairy lights to create ambient lighting that photographs well! I thought about going all out with my bedding but, it's not really my style. So, instead, I swapped out my usual black and white throw cushions for an IKEA red and white plaid as well as a furry heart mini pillow from Penneys. Not pictured is also a super soft fleece Christmas jumper-ish print throw that is not unlike this one from House of Fraser
