Pre­pare an area for fes­tive drinks and nib­bles with sparkling fine crys­tal and glass. Cover a con­sole table for un­der­stated grandeur and set the scene by fram­ing art­work (here made from wall­pa­per pan­els) with gen­er­ous green­ery swags.

Trans­form your hall­way by lay­er­ing ev­er­green fo­liage and fresh flow­ers along stair­cases and on ta­bles. Ac­ces­sorise with sil­ver baubles, twin­kling lights and smart rib­bon.

In ad­di­tion to dec­o­rat­ing ban­is­ters, em­bel­lish a door frame with a sim­ple gar­land of mag­no­lia leaves. The sil­ver witch ball draws the eye into the room be­yond, to­wards the twin­kling tree.

Sil­ver, green and white wrap­ping pa­per evokes the feel of a win­try for­est sprin­kled with snow. Con­tinue the nat­u­ral theme with a jug full of olive branches.

Dark painted walls pro­vide a dra­matic back­drop for fes­tive din­ing. Here, the sea­sonal flow­ers and fo­liage, by Thomas Bloom, are en­hanced by can­dles and fairy lights.

Fresh and invit­ing, this guest room is read­ied for Christ­mas with the sim­plest of touches: a del­i­cate hang­ing wreath and gen­er­ous home­made stock­ings.
