Follow my blog with Bloglovin I've searched high and low to round up the most beautiful & unique Christmas decor from around the Globe.  Whatever your style, I hope you find inspiration! Emily Thompson Christmas Tree - Verandah Magazine Emily Thompson of Emily Thompson Flowers created this stunning Christmas Tree garlanded with Grevellea, Cedar Boughs and Queen Anne's Lace.  No need for Christmas bulbs.  Some white twinkle lights is all you'd need. Found in Verandah Magazine. Christmas Pinecones by Type Florist and Event Stylist Fleur McHarg created a lovely still life of the different pine elements she used to create her garland.

Christmas Tree Created on Wall Using Twinkle Lights as Outline An alternative or possible addition to decorating a real Christmas tree is to create one on a wall using twinkle lights as an outline.  The entire family could chip in by using old post cards, wild flowers and mementos. Image from French By Design Interior Designer Ben Pentreath Home Decorated for Christmas British Interior Designer Ben Pentreath has created an incredibly warm and inviting space in the Bloomsbury home  he shares with husband and Floral Designer, Charlie McCormick.  Although more traditional in design, there's nothing rudimentary about this space.  I like the use of different patterns and furniture styles.  The antique cane chair and woven ethnic basket work beautifully with the masculine striped rug.   The garland created by Charlie McCormick that surrounds or rather engulfs the mirror is a thing of beauty. Photograph - House and Garden UK Ben Pentreath has an eponymous home goods shop in London that's definitely worth a visit - Pentreath & Hall Charlie McCormick's Floral Shop - McCormick Old Money Christmas An English Manor where style meets tradition.  I love the fringed velvet sofa, Tartan fabric and Aubusson rug.  The Garland Canopy made from Fall Leaves, Pine and Citrus feels just right for this space.
