Well its beginning to look a lot like Christmas and with less than 6 days to go until we can open our presents， what could be better than (if you haven’t already) getting stuck into decorating you home all festive. Why not get inspired by some shabby chic festive decorations to get even more in the mood this season or to simply prep you for your chosen style next year.
Being a big lover of all things shabby and vintage myself， I'd recommend to try something regal and charming to the traditional brushed gold and ruby red bringing a shabby chic and vintage Christmas decor theme into your home this year.pillow covers vintage
When I think of shabby chic style and character straight away lots of white pattern lacejute lumbar pillow， floral prints and bunting banners come to mind. You could really get creative adding reams of lace trimmings to the edges of your shelves， mantel pieces and more to add a detailed border all around your living space.
To add a shabby finishing touch placing a handmade Christmas bunting or in this case typed label banner can really spread that festive cheer and wishes for a white Christmas with friends and family.
Being the festive centre of the family home at Christmas I can think of nothing more enjoyable than spending cosy evenings with family relaxing in the living room ， listening to classic Christmas tunes？ and watching home alone whilst admiring the cherpy decor.
To really make your living space pop with vintage charm try to work with different tones of cream， warm gold’s and pastel shades to link back to the shabby chic theme and also be sure to wrap everything up with ribbon and ？bow for that added touch.
Notes from Alice
A lampshade can make or break the look of your lamp. Even if the lamp is right, without the right shade, the look is wrong. The line between sophisticated and silly is a fine one. Shape, style, and proportion can make the difference between a lamp with elegance and flair and one that is overly ostentatious and lacking in balance. Choosing a lampshade is as personal as choosing the right hat- what looks good on you may not look good on me- and it certainly won’t fit! But no matter what your style, it helps to outline the basic guidelines.
