I’m still obsessed with monochrome. I thought I had left it behind, but then I stumbled upon French By Design’s 2015 Christmas and Nordic Design’s inspirational festive posts and they pulled me back in.

This year a four-year-old is going to highjack my tree with an array of  homemade decorations, so this is my fantasy christmas decoration list for a minimal monochrome Christmas. It would be nice to throw in some gold or silver highlights which are pretty plentiful to find, so I’ve narrowed it down the more purist monochrome, minimal decos for some inspiration.

Hopefully you can channel my desire for a monochrome christmas into your home …if you have no children, or some level of control over your kids!
