TOP TIPS

Dec­o­rat­ing for Christ­mas

Scottish Field - - INTERIORS | CALEDONIAN CABIN, INVERGARRY -

1. De­cide whether to har­monise or con­trast and then try and keep to two colours.

2. Once you’ve cho­sen your theme, stay true to it.

3. Re­mem­ber that some­times less is more.

4. Make as many dec­o­ra­tions as you can your­self from nat­u­ral finds. Do­ing this can help fill large spa­ces in­ex­pen­sively. Twigs painted or sprayed white with a dust­ing of glit­ter can look stun­ning.

5. Think about your au­di­ence. If you’ve got guests com­ing to stay, espe­cially lit­tle ones, get them in­volved.
