Christmas tree decorating tips
Interior Designer, Katherine Pooley, is passionate about the art of decorating the Christmas tree: "It is an art," she says, "My top tip is to add coloured baubles last. It is easier to see where to add the colour once the tree is nearly finished, and quite often, less is more. It gives me great pleasure to create something new and exciting every year for family and friends. Christmas is truly my favourite time of year, it's all about family."

Sue Barnes, of London florist Lavender Green, divides 2021’s chic doorscaping looks into two main categories. “Russian luxury — jewel-like colours, a sophisticated yet childlike look with Nutcrackers all over the place. The second look is snowy and iridescent, not glitter, but frosted. It’s not sparkly, it’s twinkly. And warm white lights, not cold, bluish white lights.”

Interior Designer, Katharine Pooley says: "This year I wanted to make Christmas extra special for my children, so the festive feel has spilled over into every corner of our coastal beach house. Layers of foliage decorate the fireplace, while garlands and wreaths decorate the front door and main staircase.

The interior designer Katharine Pooley has worked with the Belgravia florist Neill Strain, who opened a concession store in Harrods this year, to create a festive doorscape to adorn her Oxfordshire home. The look “takes the traditional door wreath to another level”. Pooley picked a mix of traditional Christmas greenery with hints of eucalyptus, “which compliments the colour of my front door. The holly, pine and ivy all work beautifully well and have a classic English feel."
