Looking for festive decoration and gift ideas this Christmas? Well look no further as we've picked the brain of interior designer to the stars Kelly Hoppen!

How can we achieve the perfect Christmas décor look? 

I love this time of year and especially love preparing my home for Christmas. It's best to keep it simple – a row of over-sized silver baubles with foliage scattered down the centre of the dining table is effortless yet creates a high-impact look. I also like to fill glass vases with baubles, these look great especially when displayed in rows.


 What should we be decorating our Christmas tree with?

I personally like to decorate my tree with silver and white decorations and lots of fairy lights. I also always attach Pussy Willow stems to the branches  which is so easy to do and looks fantastic.

How would you prepare the guest room at Christmas?

Kelly Hoppen velvet throw I would focus on making it cosy and enticing through the use of throws and cushions on the bed in sumptuous materials such as velvet and faux fur. The addition of a scented candle on the bedside table and the use of warm-coloured light bulbs can also transform the ambience of the room – so much so that your guests will never want to leave.

What items from your collection would you give away as gifts?    

Kelly Hoppen vintage pillowcases Any of the bed linen sets, as they are such a great gift and something people don't always think to treat themselves to.



What's on your Christmas wishlist? 

Anything by Jo Malone or L'Occitane, DVD box sets which I can curl up and watch in bed and a Prada cover for my iPad.
