Kate Forman's Country Christmas


This is the fabric designer Kate Forman's country house at Christmas. Isn't it beautiful? I love the combination of the red with the candlelight. Delicious...




 

I hope you're keeping warm. We have snow!! I'm hoping, hoping, hoping that we're going to have my first EVER White Christmas this year.

{Please, please, pleeeeeeeeease?}

In the meantime, I'm off to have a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.

{Yum!}

What a cozy and gorgeous home! I could sink into that couch for a couple days.

Hope your snow keeps until Christmas! We don't even have a flake of snow. I live in CO... seriously!!!LOL

Have a blessed and Merry one with your family, Sarah! The mulled wine and pie sound like a nice way to relax!

Blessings, friend!

So very pretty! I heard on the news England got hit with a massive snowstorm. How much did you get? Does this mean you'll be having a white Christmas?
Merry Christmas Sarah!

Your pics have helped steer me back to where I want to be, THANK YOU lovely! An email is coming your way too, I promise:D I have my fingers and toes crossed that you will have your first white Christmas, how magical! ~ Tina xx

Yummy images! That lady KNOWS how to decorate.
Merry, merry Christmas and I really hope you get your wish for a White Christmas. If not next year, you will have to join me for Christmas, we ALWAYS have lots of snow to go around here in Manitoba!:)

High Street Cottage said...

Oh Sarah! How Uber Fantastic is that floral sofa??? I love it! Kate's caught my eye with her decor, simply fab!

Erin said...

Thanks for sharing these swoon-worthy photos, Sarah! I know little of the British designers in this vein besides Atlanta Bartlett and Christina Strutt, so I'll be checking out this lady now.

And this post is so timely for me as I have to admit I'm on a UK-period-homes-magazine-binge lately because, well, the Brits do gorgeous floral fabrics and muted loveliness better than anyone else.

I picked up the December issue of Period Living the other day and am being a very good girl to not look at it until Christmas since it's a stocking stuffer to myself.

Hope you have a wonderful, snowy Christmas with your family!

Take care,
Erin

What?! You've NEVER had a white Christmas? I wish I could send you some of my snow :)

Those photos look so warm and cozy. I could just imagine snuggling up in that chair right next to the fire.

Best wishes ♥

Miranda said...

Sarah, I love her home. The red and white is stunning and calming. It's great. Enjoy your Christmas! And I hope it's white for you too. If not, you're welcome to come and visit my white Christmas...though the -27F degree climate might make you think twice. ;) Merry Christmas!!

Holly said...

That home looks inviting and cozy and warm...I wish I was sitting their enjoying my mulled wine!

Enjoy a white Christmas...I have never had one...I hope it is magical for you.

Love Kate Forman fabric too..

The Moerks said...

Delicious indeed. I am loving that tree, so lush and sumptuous.

Kim said...

I hope you get your white Christmas! Last year we got one here in Oklahoma. Everyone was complaining because it ruined travel plans for some but we were snug in our new red farmhouse by the wood burning stove and absolutely loved it. Hubby pulled the sled around the pasture with the SUV too. So fun. I will never forget it!

Anne at Bird/Like said...

Happy Holidays! Love the fabric on the couch and dining room chairs, has that soft slightly worn look that is so appealing to me...

Brandi said...

Thanks so much Sarah for responding to my questions! I searched the internet for pictures and they look like something I would really enjoy. I had no idea my email was set up that way. Oops! I need to figure out how to fix that. Thanks again! I am so happy to have found your blog and have you as a friend!!!! xo

Ps. Is it snowing yet?

Carla Marie said...

Love the gorgeous home photos! So do you have a good amount of snow?!?! That would be fun for your Christmas, I think we have always had snow, heck here in Minnesota we now have 29 inches total! It is crazy, that is why we went sledding down the stairs and outside (just like in Home Alone), did you see our blog about it, pretty funny!

Vanessa said...

Hi Sarah! Oh, I'm so jealous that you may have a white Christmas! We had a white Thanksgiving but that isn't quite the same. I love the pics in this post and they just look so warm and cozy and like a quintessential English Christmas to me. We had mulled wine for the first time at a party last night and I LOVED it! Yum! Hope you are enjoying being all snug and cozy this week!

Jenni said...
