Wednesday Wall2Wall ☆ Christmas Decoration French Inspired Red & White
Here’s another inspirations for Christmas which I am very excited to present to you on my blog. My Japanese friend in Jakarta asked me a couple of weeks ago if I could take photos of the Christmas decoration at her home and then told me that it was her dream to have her home featured on my blog. I felt flattered and humbled. I knew that she has visited my blog, but I thought that it was because she was my friend and didn’t realize that she has actually followed it. She invited me to her home this week and I took the photos. She also cooked lunch for me!
I arrived at the front door of her home and I saw a pretty wreath hanging outside. Then the door was opened and the white Christmas decor by Indonesian artisans welcomed me. She told me before how much she loved decorating her home, especially for Christmas. By seeing the entrance area of her house, it was apparent that decorating is her passion.
Her tree was beautifully decorated with pretty little ornaments that she probably collected over the years. I enjoyed looking at the delicate ornaments made of wood on the tree and it made me want to have little ornaments on my tree as well. Every decoration she had in every corner of her home seemed well thought through, loved and cared. Actually I have never seen a Japanese home decorated this much with Christmas decoration.
I saw an extensive collection of interior design books on her book shelf which looked like part of the decoration. She clearly loves to study and learn about interior design. From what I observed, her style is influenced by a lot of French designs. She told me that she ordered “DECORATE”, a book written by a famous blogger, Holly Becker, of decor8 as she learned about the decor8 blog through my blog. I was very pleased to hear that.
I hope you enjoyed the Christmas decoration at my friend’s house as much as I did.
