After buying my first Christmas decoration last weekend (see previous post here) I’ve started eyeing up this year’s offerings. I share my top John Lewis bauble picks below, enjoy!
Let’s talk baubles!
My decorating style is often eclectic, in previous years I have adorned our tree with silver and bright neon pops of colour, another year with star wars figures & childhood memorabilia & last year I went full on Elf…paper stars, snowflakes & snow on window frames…yep!
But with a stunning mix of luxe, scandi & kitsch decorations available this year, I wonder if it’s possible to tastefully mix all three? After wandering round Nottingham’s shops last weekend I got a good idea of each store’s offerings.
Amid snow-capped mountains there’s a lavish and eccentric realm where flamboyant flourishes abound. More is more here, from opulent golds to pretty sugared pastels
I’d describe their collection of decorations as a mix of whimsical, wonderfully kitsch baubles & decorations teamed with more classic looking, gold and silver ones.
But in honesty, all their collections are right up my street! I love mixing tasteful decorations with a few fun ones, it makes it more personal and a great way to reflect your individuality. So which ones did I eye up…my favourites are a mix from the Ostravia theme, Shangri-la theme & Ruskin House collection below which I’ll team with gold, metallic baubles to offset the kitsch.
