Merry Christmas from Design Hunter

I'm signing off from Design Hunter today and taking a break over Christmas to spend time with family and friends, but I wanted to leave you with these beautiful festive decorating ideas from stylist and photographer Holly Pickering. I've been a fan of Holly's food and lifestyle styling blog Sourdough and Rye for some time, but I thought her latest photoshoot was just stunning, and I'm so pleased that Holly has been kind enough to allow me to share some of the images here on Design Hunter.... aren't they wonderful?

I think what I love most about this photoshoot is that the colour palette is so unexpected - not one that you would usually associate with festive decorating at all, but it works perfectly. If red is just too full on for you then this colour scheme of shiny copper with soft peach, russet and champagne tones would make a great alternative.

This is just a little taster. Please do visit Holly's blog to view the rest of the photoshoot.

A huge thank you to everyone who has read or supported Design Hunter in 2012. I'll be back on 2nd January. Until then, I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year.
