There’s nothing quite like heading home to a large mulled wine, that almost-gone tin of Quality Street and of course, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. So Team LBD asked Wendy Clarkson, creative director of the amazing decorations website ChristmasTimeUK.com (what you can’t find on this website isn’t worth looking for), to reveal her top trends for decorating your home this Christmas. Here’s her high-fashion insights:
