The “ber” months are here! And I am already looking forward to decorating our apartment (I promised myself I won’t go overboard). Red and gold are the color palettes I’m currently working with (but this could still change, depending on my mood hehe).
One thing for sure, we won’t be having a Christmas tree. I just don’t think it’s practical to buy one, given our limited storage space. So I’m thinking of the following instead:
Throw pillows! Red throw pillows tied and decorated with festive ribbons are cool and very practical (you can re-use the red pillows for the valentine’s).

Christmas balls in mantle glass / glass jars. Very chic and will make a good conversation piece. I am loving this one from Tatertots and Jello. They’re actually ruffle balls made for Valentine’s Day. I think it’ll be great with Christmas balls too!
I wonder though if there are Moroccan-inspired glass jar at Dapitan Arcade? There are big glass jars available at Landmark and SM but I want something close to this. (note to self: start looking for pretty glass jars, preferrably with top covers)
Yuletide pictures in frames. I love paintings in frames. I want some too, depicting the Christmas season like this art print by Dan Campanelli circa 1990. They’ll look good with gold frames.
Glittery fabrics for curtains. I am thinking of Indian sari fabric as Christmas curtains, because they they have rich,glittery colors and the texture is very soft, almost georgette-like. I found this one being sold at eBay, but it’s in UK huhu. It’s in a very beautiful maroon color, with delicate floral details.
On the other hand, this silk cream curtain with bold red damask pattern looks very contemporary yet versatile (available at curtainscurtains.co.uk):
