About this time of the year, each year, I start nesting. You know how pregnant women tend to do that when the baby is about to arrive? I do it about six weeks before Christmas hits.As an absolute festive nutter, Christmas ideas start bubbling away early November, as I think about how I'll decorate my apartment for the silly season.

Deborah Hutton is so much more than a well-known media personality. She's also a TV presenter, former mag editor and designer of her own homewares range. Oh, and let me not forget to mention her hugely popular website, Balance by Deborah Hutton.Who better to turn to for advice on making entertaining at home a breeze than this lovely lady?

In years gone by - or at least in the years I was hunting for nice coasters (probably before online stores really existed), you'd be hard-pressed to find nice options in bricks-and-mortar shops.In fact, some homewares stores didn't even have coasters. And the ones that did were usually a bit cringe-worthy (coasters with names on them... I don't think I need to go into it).

The dining room has got to be the most under-utilised area of the home (or am I just eating dinner on the couch way more than I should be?), and I think it has something to do with the lack of attention we give it when it comes to decorating.
