Brit Decor: Festive Focals/ How to streamline your festive decor

There's no looking back now, we've taken what seems to be a hurried step into December, don't you think? For those of you who have already prepped for the big day, I take my hat off and bow to your unwavering commitment to Christmas. I always seem to find myself playing catch-up with the hunt for those elusive gifts and this year it feels like I'm going to struggle to earn my Santa stripes before the 25th December!

Whilst I can almost smell oven-baked mince pies, taste the heartwarming spices of mulled wine, and smell fresh Nordic pine scents, I am not one for 'maximal' festive frills when it comes to decorating my home for the holidays, perhaps more so this year after a manic past few month, I'm looking for a slower Season.

Instead I prefer to adopt an easier pace during this period, where our home remains a sanctuary whilst gently nodding to the spirit of Christmas with some subtle decs, but with a bigger focus on friends and family and, crucially, chill-axing with my beau. 

If like me, you are yearning for a Christmas style that is a little 'slower' this year, then you have come to the right place today. Join me on a leisurely stroll through some pared down festive decor ideas, with an emphasis on a considered style where less is more.

I've also perused some of the more natural and Scandinavian inspired Christmas decor available this year to curate my top 'picks' for pared down purchases (see below) including shop-able links.

I don't think it's too early to wish you all a very special 'slow' Christmas...
