I have a friend who just creates the most beautiful displays and interiors out of articles one would not think much of. She transforms not-so-pretty furniture and old trinkets to desirable objects, and this Christmas her house is just fabulous – and I got her permission to post a few pictures here!
I hope you enjoy her Christmas as much as did, especially as the tour came with a nice cup of tea and mince pies topped with whipped cream!
Beautiful hanging ornaments above the bar-style dining table
Baubles, fairy lights and paper ring decor out of music sheets
Music sheet paper rings look so romantic and vintage
Baubles and fairy lights
Silver and red in the dining table
Music sheets and distressed look for the rotating tray – I wish I could learn all these skills from my friend!
This is a piece of furniture I love, what a transformation from a dates pine pieces, especially with the cute seaside-themed handles. And note those fabulous old skis in the corner…
Handles include seahorses, stars, urchins, shells…
These pine cones combined with red baubles is so lovely
Love this seaside-themed sawing machine table (restored by my friend) with the little Christmassy touches, including the self-made candles with the same music sheets
Cute lit garland with these cool oversized candleholders (which originally were boring dark brown)
Lovely mix of old and new with a more global theme
Traditional and rustic tree decor
The tree is filled with lovely details such as these little ribbon wreaths
Old-fashioned candy cones filled with treats
Love these rustic globes!
Birds and beads
Placecard holder sleights also look great in the tree
These skates by the door bring old memories of all the kids skating on the lake in winter
English mince pies topped with whipped cream – so delicious
How cute are these little Christmas charms in the wine glasses
