Lorraine has invited Wayfair UK’s stylists into her new home to overhaul her guest cottage for Christmas. With a flurry of festive décor and a base palette of soft grays and neutrals, it’s both a glittering grotto away from the main house and a cosy, inviting space she can use year round.

Read on to find out Lorraine's inspiration behind the makeover and how she achieved a super stylish festive scheme for her guest cottage.

'We are so looking forward to celebrating Christmas in our lovely new home after our big move down from Scotland. We moved to a quirky house with beautiful views over the river.

I love to have an old-fashioned Christmas and our daughter, Rosie, will be coming home from Singapore and it will be lovely for us all to be together. We wake up on Christmas morning, have a glass of fizz and start unwrapping presents. After dinner we take Angus, our border terrier, out for a brisk walk nearby to blow away the cobwebs and later we tuck into turkey sandwiches during our cosy movie night in.'

'Christmas is a great time of year to catch up with the people you love. My Mum and Dad will be coming down from Scotland and staying with us in our new Guest Cottage. We also usually have a little party for our friends and neighbours with beer, bubbly and lots of snack and nibbles.

We play Christmas carols in the day and crank up the party tunes later on. I like to make sure that we have good lighting (perfect for dancing) and I fill the house with poinsettias and hyacinths to make everything feel really warm and inviting.'

What was the inspiration behind the guest cottage makeover? What do you love most about the style of the space and do you have any favourite pieces?

'We have a lot of friends and family who come to stay with us at weekends and I wanted to have a place where they would feel relaxed and a little bit spoiled. Wayfair UK have helped me to truly transform the guest cottage into a home away from home as they have such an amazing range of products.

From the furniture to the accessories, I absolutely love the new look of the space with all of the different fabrics, textures and lovely little touches. My favourite spot is the desk area and I adore the chest of drawers and ladder shelf, which is so stylish and clever. Guests who visited after the makeover were thrilled and said they wanted to move in!'

How would you describe your interior style? What’s most important to you when decorating a room?

'I absolutely love Scandi interiors but I’m not too strict when it comes to sticking to one style. My personal style is all about comfort so I adore plump cushions and cosy rugs. Wayfair have really helped me find some amazing, affordable pieces that have turned this house into a real home. They make it so easy!'
