No, I won’t be spending Christmas Day at John Lewis. Though now that I think of it, that sounds pretty fun. But last week I got the chance to check out the winter wonderland at John Lewis Kingston. They had decorated some of their private rooms with a festive flair. Armed with a glass of Cava and my iPhone, I got to wander around looking for inspiration in which to decorate my home for Christmas. I also saw some beautiful items for my kids and some potential Christmas gifts.
My favourite room was the modern/Scandi-chic bedroom. The monochrome and grey looked so stylish, and it only needed a splash of colour to make the room feel festive. And I just wanted to snuggle under the faux fur blankets. There were several Christmas trees filled with the most beautiful ornaments. My own tree is feeling a bit uninspired this year and I feel that I need some new and quirky baubles. I especially loved the Champagne tree decorations (photo above), but I don’t think they would be safe on our tree. Not with my son around.
There was a children’s bedroom, which was so sweet. We normally just decorate the downstairs but I love the idea of having mini Christmas trees and colourful wreaths in the kids’ bedrooms. Since we have two children and they each have their own bedroom, a tree won’t be that practical. But I definitely plan to add some Christmas touches to their rooms. My favourite part items, though, were the slippers. My son, Dubz, adores foxes. These slippers would make him so happy!
We finished the evening with divine hand massages from the lovely ladies at ESPA. The products smelled amazing. And after dealing with a sinus infection for two weeks, I was so happy to have a relaxing hand massage.
It was such a lovely night. I even managed some shopping afterwards in John Lewis (they’re open til 9pm most nights until Christmas). Just needed a selfie in the loo before getting back to the babysitter. Are you all ready for Christmas? I just have a bit more decorating and shopping to do, and then I’m ready for the big day! Yea!
I was invited to view the winter wonderland for the purpose of this review. We were given lovely goodie bags but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
