Interiors Inspired by our Favourite Christmas Films

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

I love Christmas, the wonderful warm feeling of family and of course the films.  Christmas Films are part of the whole seasonal celebration in our house, I can't imagine Christmas without watching The Muppet Christmas Carol whilst wrapping presents.  Films can inspire design in many ways, from fashion to interiors they can set trends and also remind us of our heritage.  Many of these films we take to our hearts and cherish them as though they were part of our family.  I have picked some of our most favourite Christmas films and interiors that could be inspired by them. White Christmas The iconic 1954 film brought us the memorable songs "Let it Snow" and "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas".  The film revolves around a successful ex-army song-and-dance team who become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former commanding general.  The Vermont inn is full of chalet chic and this rustic antler chandelier will bring a touch of wilderness into any home.

Kevin's solution for dim witted burglars is to bombard them with a variety of household goods, including a variety of tools.
