Decorating your living space for Christmas is always something to look forward to. Be inspired by the amazing roomsets designed and styled by Jess Taverner that showcase two different festive styles.

Festive Chic

Hero buys

Mozzafiato sorana tiles, £45 per sq. m, Claybrook

If you're lucky enough to have a fireplace, decorating it for Christmas is a simple pleasure. We love the backdrop of these gorgeous tiles from Claybrook, they act as the foundation of the pastel scheme as well as incorporating a fabulous pattern.

Entwistle teal curtain, from £42.81, Blinds Direct

How you choose to dress your windows definitely sets the tone of a room. Jess chose these gorgeous patterned curtains from Blinds Direct that pick out the blush and blue tones in the rest of the Festive Chic room set. 

Silver barware, from £19.50, M&S

It's important to style empty spaces whilst adding festive touches. The silver barware is from M&S and creates a point of interest on the coffee table. We also love the idea of displaying pine cones in a glass dome or jar. 

Natural Style

Hero buys

Shaker peg rail, £21, The English Panelling Company

The Natural Style roomset was the most traditionally festive out of the four looks. Jess decided to frame the entire room with a peg rail from The English Panelling Company. This not only added a rustic edge to the scheme but meant festive touches could be hung from the pegs, such as a stag head and wooden star.

Morso 6848 on pedestal, £1,799, Morso

Is there anything more festive than a real fire crackling away in the background? One of the hero buys from the Natural Style roomset has to be the Morso log burner. It proudly stands alone as a statement piece and is both stylish and practical.

Baubles, £1, from a selection at Poundland

No traditional room scheme is complete without a classic red and green Christmas tree. Jess decided to add a modern twist with quirky decorations from Poundland. For example, the snow-covered telephone box, postbox and a scattering of festive nutcrackers.
