I loathe red & green colour schemes,.... tinsel,.. smiling santa faces,..coloured flashing lights and general tack.
I think that if you are going to stylishly decorate for the Christmas season, then it is best to continue with the existing colour scheme of your house. That way, you avoid the decorations clashing with your decor!
I struggled to find Christmas Stockings for the kids that were not red and green felt or were covered with santa-inspired fluff,.. so I decided to make my own.
We have a beautiful vintage medical light in our living space that seemed perfect to hang stockings on,.. so I continued with a metallic/grey look.
I constructed each stocking with a matt grey/silver fabric and then personalized each one with different ribbon/vintage lace doilies and also with covered wire letters for each kiddie.
I think they look fabulous!
