Livingetc December 2010

Well, what can I say? Livingetc's December issue is a feast for your festive senses! With holiday decor ideas for a range of style points and a seriously cracking house of the month home tour, where is plenty to inspire. Proceedings kick off with a woodland-inspired mood board along with a Christmas stationery round-up, after which we head straight into this month's star home. Belonging to the Ottilie family, the Suffolk home is utterly charming - confident without being overstated. If that wasn't enough, they are also impeccably dressed (check out their preppy style - I love it!). The other two stars of this issue are the 'decorating ideas' features: Fabulous Festive Looks for Less and Decorating with Foliage. Ice tones mixed with blue and grey hues make a statement out of a pole of baubles, whilst those looking for an understated look can leave their tree bare. Amongst many other engaging spreads - including interviews with fashion and homeware designer Ben de Lisi and The Rug Company founder, Suzanne Sharp - the issue provides a great read as well as numerous tear sheet opportunities. There's also a delightful Donna Hay Christmas supplement, which is packed full of handmade gift ideas, sweets to bake and decor ideas for the table.

  1. Thanks for bringing UK mags to us Will. The entire rustic feel really appeals to me, especially the bedroom with all that layering of textures, really want to sneak right in with a hot chocolate and a good read. ;)

  11. Lots and lots of great holiday inspiration. Absolutely loved the red and white table cloth.
    And the stunning living room with the open fire, how cozy isn´t that!?
    Also felt very inspired of the christmas tree. I love the idea of keeping it simple and the white christmas gifts under the tree are beautiful. I might just use this idea in my home:)!

  28. I am salivating over my keyboard.!
    Note to self (after mopping up) do skip over to the shop and buy Living etc...! :)

    Love the look of that bare tree. Sure, my brain is dressing the tree in 100 different ways, but it looks stunning just like so!
    Donna Hay. What can I say!? (didn't intend to rhyme there..) - that girl has come such a long long way in the past few years! Her styling teams are divine and I love her food. Am a subscriber to her magazine since launch date..!

    Also loving the 'dramatic and magical' shot (with birdcage. That table..! Mamma mia!

    Could go on.. and on..

    Loving what you bring Mr B.
