Cox and Cox For Stylish Christmas Decor

Cox and Cox Christmas Decoration

When we had our log-burner installed a couple of years ago, I thought I wanted clean lines and minimalism. After that first Christmas though when it all felt very plain, I knew a mantel beam would make a difference. It’s now my favourite part of the living room to decorate at Christmas. And who better to help me decorate than the wonderful Cox and Cox?

They have the dreamiest collection of Christmas homewares. I much prefer understated for the festive season and think 80% of what you find on the market is pretty tacky. Less is more when creating a warm and welcoming living space but it was still so hard to choose. I don’t always stick to the same colour scheme and decided this year upon earthy tones, like greys, coppers and browns.

Our living room still needs so much work done but we’ve managed to create the cosiest little corner by the fire for this time of year. Pictures *almost* make it seem that the room might be finished but they don’t tell the whole truth. I love this little spot though and curling up with a glass of wine and a film is basically essential winter goals.

To start with, I focused on the mantel. The fireplace is definitely the feature of our living room and the first thing you see, perfect for Cox and Cox homewares. My original plan had been to place two tealight holders at either end with some pretty star lights and eucalyptus dressed across the middle. When the tealight holders arrived they were a little too wide for the beam so I used these beautiful grey ceramic stars instead as a centrepiece. The wood effect copper and grey star twine is battery operated and look absolutely stunning, during both day and night. The look is finished with eucalyptus which was worth the epic hunt to find because it smells so festive.

I also chose some pieces for our small coffee table. We don’t tend to overhaul our homewares seasonally but it’s fun to do it at Christmas. The tealight holders are now here along with this stunning wire bauble tree which is ideal for table tops and smaller spaces. Basically I needed an excuse to display the stunning baubles I’d already seen, mixing them up with copper feathers for an elegant simple look.

    Love the star garland and the copper feathers. My favourite part of putting up the Christmas decorations is decorating my mantle.

      I think it’s lovely to have one as a centre piece, the first Christmas we just had the fireplace it looked so bare without the mantle X
