I seem to be favouring simplicity lately, as a style. Wood, creams & whites, linen and other natural materials. Once again the Scandinavian style is taking a hold of me in different areas of my life.
I (like most people at this time of year) has one eye permanently open on the app Pinterest – how addictive is it by the way?! Pinning Christmas styles such as trees, decorations, homes, recipes and gift wrap. I cannot get enough of these beautiful, inviting and festive images this year.
One of the styles that I am favouring are simple, brown-paper parcels for present wrapping, such as the above image (source). I love how you can accessorise the paper with ribbons and stamps, as well as personalising them with letters and labels.
They look so effective (below) don’t they?
This is a cheaper alternative to the expensive luxury wrap. Plus brown paper is easy to pick up on long rolls, and it means that even if you do have any left over after Christmas, you can use it for parcel sending throughout the year!
I am going to try these over the coming weeks!
Do watch this space…
