One of the biggest trends for 2014 has been for all things monochrome. The scandinavians have shown us that less really is more with their pared down simple black & white schemes and the use of natural elements in the home.
The shops are full of black & white stylish decorations for Christmas, if this is your style you will be spoilt for choice. Here are a few of my favourites plus gift wrap to complete your scheme.
White antler candle holder and branch tree with lights from Graham & Green
A selection of black & white scandi style decorations from John Lewis
Bespoke glass bauble Not on the High Street
Christmas garland & black & white bakers twine Papermash
Black & white polka dot gift wrap NOTHS
Some cheap & easy ways to bring scandi style into your Christmas scheme are by using galvanised buckets to place a small fir tree in, mine was picked up for £6 from Leek antique market and they can be easily found in traditional hardware shops. Also collect some gnarled branches from an old tree next time you’re on a walk and give them a light wash of white or pale grey paint, then twist white lights around and you have a chic and simple scandi style decoration.
