Make a Christmas table beautiful with the perfect centre piece. We’ve scoured the internet for ideas but the common theme is knowing you can use things from around the house or easy to obtain, to create one.

Gather old bottles, jars or a wooden box; use off cuts of tree, forage some holy or conifer branches; find ribbon, washi tape or torn paper found at home; use old paint samples or spray paint; find pebbles or stones; plus hand write or print festive text or guests names.

To make the Christmas table display extra special, to place around a room for soft lighting over the festive period or cluster in groups with the other sizes available – we love these tree candles from Zara Home.

These candles are just part of their beautiful Christmas decor range, which includes candle holders, baubles and other festive ornaments.

If you like you homeware handmade with Moroccan influences then you must pay a visit to Bohemia Design.

A gorgeous website full of baskets, cushions, throws and more, all made with natural materials and traditional techniques.

We believe in handmade; perfectly imperfect wares crafted slowly from natural materials locally sourced. Pottery, basketry, weaving are processes as old as human time, containers for storage and carrying, cloth for warmth and protection. Goods made by hand bear the character of their creator, the nuances and eccentricities integral to each piece.’

A great site to get some gift idea inspiration.

A new collection from IKEA always gets us excited, and this new one called DEKORERA is a cool, moody selection that is perfect for right now.

‘As the holidays approach and the nights lengthen, we’re reminded of the dark, brooding portraits and still-lifes that typify the art of 17th century Dutch master painters like Rembrandt, Vermeer and Hals, full of swirling, golden light, playful domestic scenes, and shadowy corners’

Combining the colours and style of these artists with Scandinavian craftsmanship the DEKORERA collection is a winner for winter.
