Rustic Christmas decorating ideas

Christmas has to be one of my all time favourite times of the year. I love decorating the Christmas tree each year with a different theme or style. 

I spent last Christmas in Italy with my extended family and missed out on decorating the house and tree for December, not that I would complain about spending Christmas in romantic Tuscany, Venice and the Italian Alps (now I'm bragging). While travelling I collected a few cute Scandinavian decorations which gave me the inspiration for a rustic Christmas this year. 

The easiest way to decorate with a rustic feel is to select as much natural products as possible like pine cones, hessian fabric, lots of fresh greenery, church style candles, natural woods and recycled jars etc. Splash the neutral with a single colour such as red i.e. my Scandinavian style decorations or perhaps some blue if you are spending Christmas at a beach summer house. 

The great thing about a rustic look is that you can make things yourself and DIY is inexpensive, which is perfect when these days Christmas is always a tight time of the year. Little things like cutting ribbon or strips of hessian fabric and tying them to the branches of your Christmas tree, is all it takes to bring out the rustic country feel for your Christmas tree.

Check out these Christmas ideas, for inspiration for your next Christmas theme.

Merry Christmas to all my beautiful followers and please comment below on what your theme is this year for Christmas.

Coming soon to Australian retailers: Elma Venezia Jewellery

They are finally here and I am so proud of my latest project. You may have read a little from my previous posts about Elma Venezia, an Italian jewellery house who makes beautiful original pieces of glass art. I am simply in love with the whole range, especially all the marine summer colours. One of my collective of projects for 2012/2013 is to import these beauties to the Australian market. So look out for them in bespoke galleries, fashion stores and jewellers near you soon. If you have a store or know someone who might be interested in becoming a stockist of Elma Venezia jewellery, contact me via my shop.

Also if you are interested in where to find a stockist near you, we will be launching the Elma Venezia website in February 2013.

For now, my online store has a vast range available and for this weekend only is having a 30% off sale as part of its '12 Deals of Christmas' promotion. To receive a 30% discount off all Elma Venezia jewellery, enter the following coupon code DEAL30%MURANO during check out.
