I would say my style is bold and colourful. I love to have floral and patterned accessories to decorate the house. I’m not afraid to mix the old with the new, don’t be put off by having traditional pieces alongside contemporary, I find they quite often compliment each other.
Choose presents that are special and will last you a life time. I would advise quality, not quantity. Think about the future when you are building your wedding list, will you still love that gold cutlery set in 20 years' time? If you choose well on the big ticket items such as china and cutlery these will last you a lifetime.
My favourite room has to be the sitting room. There are so many accessories you can bring to brighten up this space. Cushions, lampshades, mirrors, rugs, artwork can all pull together a room with mismatched patterns making it feel cosy and homely. That is the key for me, making a home feel lived in.
Great presents for the older generations are the classic, yet high quality items. This could range from cutlery and glassware to china and cookware. They always want to buy you something that will last you a lifetime, a lasting memory of your wedding date and their presence.
