Decorating your House this Christmas 

 
Hello everyone and welcome back to Styling with Jade, Christmas is just around the corner which means it’s time to start decorating your house for the festive season. In some parts of the world it’s cold and snowing while in other parts of the world it’s hot and summery, but we all share some common Christmas decoratives. So today I’m going to take you through some of my favourite decorations to make your house feel festive with a touch of Christmas spirit. 

The most obvious thing we all put in our houses for this holiday is a Christmas Tree, there are 2 options a real tree or a fake one. Here in Australia we generally opt for the fake one, less maintenance and you don’t have to buy a new one every year. Putting the Christmas tree up is one of my favourite things to do and it allows your family to come together and have some fun. What you decorate your tree with is entirely up to you but I have left some photos below of some inspiration both traditional and alternative.

I have to talk about this one because it’s one of my favourites and that is candles. If you live in Europe or America or any other country that celebrates Christmas in the winter than these are perfect for you. Candles give warmth to a room, they look great and if you buy the scented ones they create a beautiful aroma throughout your house. Down below I’m going to leave the link to some of my favourite places to buy candles aswell as others I have heard good things about. I definitely reccomend checking them out and if you do please leave me a comment below.

Living in a Loft 

Hello everyone and welcome back to Styling with Jade, today I want to talk about one of the biggest interior design trends of the present and that is the loft style living. There are so many variations of this style now and I thought while I’m having a little look I may aswell take you guys along on the journey aswell.

I think the most popular style of loft living is the bedroom. From kids rooms, to adults this trend has grown and is only getting bigger. One of the major upsides to using a loft style is that you can maximise the space within your house.

The next one is the study, a lot of homes these days are being built with a loft style study. This allows the room to be up and out of the way, and is especially good if there is not enough room in your existing home.

Another popular room being transformed into the loft style is the wardrobe/closet. If there is a lack of space on the ground floor and plenty of room up towards the ceiling than why not build a space to expand your closet.

The last popular way of using a loft style in the interior of a home is simply by opening up an area of your upstairs which is exposed to the downstairs. I think this all came about due to the desire to have an open plan living area. Below are some of my favourite ways to create this loft style inside someone’s home.

The only downside I can think of when it comes to loft style living is the heat. As you’ve all probably been told a million times hot air rises and thus would leave your loft area a little hotter than the rest of your house. Obviously there is solutions to this and that would be considered during the planning process. 

So I hope you all enjoyed this weeks post, if you have any comments please leave them below and like and share with your friends. If you have a loft style room in your home than please let me know I’d love to hear about your experience. Also just quickly all my written posts (Sunday’s) from now until Christmas will be festive inspired so if you are a big lover of Christmas like me than make sure not to miss out. Thankyou for reading everyone.
