As much as a good old Christmas tree is an essential, I also love finding space in the house that could benefit from a little festive love. Picture frames, fireplaces and mantelpieces are all great places to experiment with decorating and I found these beautiful faux flowers from Oka. They have lovely faux blooms; I’ll use them year after year and they’re not solely for Christmas, so they’ll come out throughout the year too. I've mixed in a few candles, a bowl of cinnamon sticks which smell delicious and added paper decorations to the top of the mirror, which actually look like double when they're reflected back into the living room.
