Afternoon Reading.. Inside Out

Every year around this time, I wait in anticipation for one of my very favourite magazines of the year, the Inside Out Christmas issue.  Filled with the most amazing homes, beautiful DIY projects and wonderfully eclectic ideas for the holiday season, Inside Out is a must have magazine for fabulous Christmas inspiration.  

What I love about Inside Out is there there is not a spot of traditional green and red in sight.  Instead each page allows you to think outside the box about decorating with simple tips to create a relaxing and beautifully festive home.

My favourite article from this beautiful issue, is Fleur Wood's magical Christmas, filled with gorgeous recipes and these fabulous pom poms that are sure to fill any house with festivity. 

I'm also loving these gorgeous creative ideas for a modern twist on traditional wreaths and stockings. 

And my favourite page just has to be.. the ever inspiring Glen Proebstel's  incredible Christmas table setting inspired by brilliant blooms, vibrancy and abundance.  How perfectly inspiring for my colourful theme this Christmas.

So if you are in need of some afternoon reading for a little Christmas inspiration, pick yourself up a copy of Inside Out , find a lovely spot to relax and enjoy all the beautiful ideas on offer.  You can find out more information about Inside Out over here and be sure to check out their gorgeous blog and Facebook page too, for lots of daily treats.
