Wall decor.. I’ve been thinking about changing the wallpaper in the dining room.. it’s not a finished room, we’re planning to extend it and move the table so we can have sofas near the fire. I think there’s just too much dark wood in a small space at the moment and think a more modern paper, maybe a geometric pattern might lighten it up a bit. One of our Christmas visitors called the room ‘oldie worldie’ not really what I was going for ☹️ myhousethismonth walldecor wallpaper diningroom woodfloor logburner

Happy New Year everyone. Thanks for the widn @1935home I’ve been taking all the decorations down today, wondering why I thought three trees was a good idea. The house looks really spacious now but needs a Spring clean. myhousethismonth

Fave present / cosy times.. Two entries for myhousethismonth in one picture. I always love getting the log burner lit, we've just been to the park and I can't feel my toes, a glass of Baileys may help.. The fire log in the picture was part of our Christmas present from friends, it's made from recycled coffee grounds and smells amazing. logburner baileys favepresent coldtoes coffeebeanfirelog

I've not done any floristry for at least 7 years, so my overly ambitious table centre didn't turn out quite as I'd imagined - it's got loads of glitter, smells great and Evie loved helping make it.. christmastablecentrepiece flowers christmas christmastable

Day 17 myhousethismonth Oh Christmas Tree.. We finally have the main tree in the living room up. I wouldn't normally choose coloured lights but Stu really wanted them because they remind him of Christmas as a kid.. The room is mainly grey and white so it actually looks quite nice. Not sure the glitter tip was a good idea our floor looked like something from Fairytopia when we finished. christmastree fairylights glitter

What do you all do with your Christmas cards? I don't really like having them on the mantle or windowsill. I bought these rather tacky card holders but at least they keep the cards organised. A few years ago we had a fire pit on New Years Eve, towards the end of the night when we were running low on fuel we decided to use the Christmas cards, it was lovely to have a second look at them and remember all the friends and family who had sent them to us. christmasdecorations christmascards

Day 12 myhousethismonth Chair.. well, sofa.. I'm desperate to replace these sofas with something more comfortable but until we know how much the kitchen extension and conservatory are going to cost I don't want to spend money on non essentials. We will get round to stripping that textured wallpaper off eventually as well, but opted just to paint it for the time being as we had so much to do and really wanted to get moved in. sofa cushion reindeertoy lamp

It's definitely a red wine and fire evening.. it's been freezing here all day, the roads and paths were treacherous this morning going to school, we still have icy snow on our street. Hope it's better tomorrow I'm heading into Leeds for my work Christmas party. I'm thinking of using the two candles on the mantle as part of my Christmas table decorations. myhousethismonth candle logfire logburner diningroom wallpaper christmastree cosynights
