Since starting the process of moving out, I have recently discovered a new found love for homeware and interior design.
Normally the first app I find myself on when I reach for my phone is Instagram, but I confess I have massively been cheating on Insta with Pinterest. Whenever I have some down time, I’ll grab a coffee and scroll endlessly, creating board after board of homeware inspo (There is a LOT of Scandinavian vibes)
The Christmas period is the best for creating a cosy home environment. With lots of brands and stores getting involved, with huge departments and ranges dedicated to Christmas furniture and knickknacks.
I am a strong believer that less is more, and whilst I dig the ‘Santa’s Grotto’ vibes, for my own space, I tend to keep things a bit more simplistic, with subtle nods to the festive season.
1- Anthropologie (one of my Favourite homeware stores) have released the most breathtakingly beautiful Christmas range this year, with everything from tree ornaments to festive tea towels. An item I loved was their Gilded Botany Table runner which is undeniably perfect for the lead up to Christmas.
It’s a gorgeous silver/grey colour, with subtle hints of rose pink and gold. (And yep, they totally have an entire matching cutlery set, if you’re feeling extra fancy) so dreamy!
2- Whilst we’re on the topic of table setting, how perfect are these twinkly table lights from Oliver Bonas? Draped across a table runner or placed in a little jar, for a little extra added magical cosiness, because in my opinion are you even doing Christmas right without copious amounts of fairy lights?
3- Now I’ll confess, I am a bit of a sucker when it comes to themed bedding, so when I saw the Its Christmas duvet set from Yorkshire Linen, I may have squealed a little…
It’s magical and effortlessly chic. I love the two tones of grey and the double sided design. When you fold over the top, it reveals a pretty little snowflake design. I mean, seriously? How cute is that!
It comes in all traditional bed sizes, includes two pillowcases AND the king size is only £19.99!
4- Ikea is another one of my go-to stores to grab a bargain, (not that I’m providing you with ground breaking news here) I picked up a few glass domes, and have been using them for a whole host of different things, but for this time of year it’s nice to put fairy lights and candles in them to instantly create a warm, relaxing glow.
5- Nothing beats a big warm blanket in the Winter, and what better than this gorgeous Oxblood/Maroon throw from Yorkshire Linen co, complete with snowflakes for added festivity! I like the idea of this draped over a settee, or folded on the end of a bed. If you don’t fancy the Christmas themed one, they have a great range of blankets and throws to suit all colour schemes! visit their website >> Here <<
6- Another piece I picked out from Yorkshire Linen co is the Deer red/Gold table runner. (Yes, I know another table runner) but this is one is half the price of the Anthropologie one and just as pretty! With dustings of gold and dainty reindeer, this is the perfect way to inject some colour and festivity into your home.
7- Finally, it wouldn’t be a blogmas post without a mention of my favourite cruelty free beauty brand – Bomb Cosmetics. They have a released a new Christmas candle called ‘Santa’s little Melter‘ which I am so excited to light, because it smells incredible! Not to mention it has a beautiful design that will instantly make any room both look and smell festive and Hygge!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and feel a little bit more inspired to make your space cosy!
