I follow an interior design and wanted to share with you some of her great ideas and simple ways to update the home for Christmas.
It can be a good chance to spring clean the house, put the pillows and duvets on the line for a day, wash your decorative cushions, wipe skirting and picture frames with a small amount of warm water and eucalyptus oil drops; this leaves a beautiful fresh, festive scent. I love this idea!
It can also be a good time to look at plantings and flowers and replant and pot plants to scatter around the house. Herbs are especially good mixed in and rosemary is a wonderful fly detterent. I didn't realise this.
A space can change so much with a pop of colour and different textures. It can be great to change cushion covers and replace woollen throws with lighter cotton and linen ones.

I also loved this idea for Christmas lunch/nibbles. Laying the food straight onto the table without plates or boards but just some baking paper underneath. You can pile all the vegetables and crackers in piles down the table. Dips in small bowls and it feels unfussy and the perfect summer Christmas entertaining.
Have fun, be safe and enjoy. Merry Christmas from all of us at Neeki Designs
