Recently, on Remodelista, I wrote about Maria Le Mesurier’s minimalist home in West Sussex, UK. Despite a raucous family life with five kids ranging in age from 4 to 18, the designer and her furniture maker husband, Paul, have been able to create (and maintain) a calm, neutral-toned, palette-cleansing home. (See A Design Couple’s Child-Friendly, Clutter-Free Home.) Their holiday decorations are similarly minimalist, naturalistic, and refreshing.
“Other than the Christmas trees and lights, I never ever buy decorations as I do not see the point, when I can find everything I need on the ground in the woods,” says Maria.
Below, Maria walks us through how she decorates every room of their home for the holiday season with foliage, most of it found (and free!) on her property.
