It’s been a funny old year, and not everyone feels the need to go large this Christmas. For starters family gatherings will be much smaller, and even non-existent in some households. What’s the point in pulling out all the stops if no guests are expected? Or maybe you have decided to just scale it down for once this year? Then again, you might be a confirmed minimalist and your normal style is restrained and barely there. Whatever the reason, a pared down Christmas scheme can still look warm and welcoming. A cosy log burner helps of course, but a soft wool carpet does wonders too. Especially if the rest of the room has little colour and pattern. Then take a tip from the Scandinavians with a eucalyptus wreath, some star decorations and a few wooden Christmas trees. Now all you have to do is curl up in a comfy armchair and the Quality Streets are all yours!
