Shhhhhh! I know it’s only mid October but Christmas is fast approaching (I won’t mention how many weeks are left because quite frankly, I find it too scary to think about) BUT just look at what I have for you. The lovely folk at Anthropologie have allowed me to share a sneak peek from their 2013 Christmas Look Book and I’ve selected my absolute favourites to bring a touch of sophistication into your home this winter. From rich metallics and beautifully illustrated ceramics, to woodland motifs and tactile textiles, here’s how to embrace the festive season the Anthropologie way…
1. Festive Word Cushion, Wish, £48 | 2. Yakity Pillow, Antlers
Welcome winter into your home by introducing a few select pieces. I’ve focused on the living area with embellished cushions, faux fur throws and a little soft lighting. Create a warm and cosy nook with a touch of luxury.
3. Faux Fur Throw, £188 | 4. Large Ginkgo Candelabra
What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’?
Bring the party to the kitchen and dress for your turkey in one of these glamorous pinnies. I’m a huge fan of the Anthro apron, they’re always perfectly tailored and oh-so chic. Sequins, pleats and peter pan collars…sigh.
Served With Style
Illustrated art needn’t be confined to the wall – have you seen these charming plates by New Orleans based painter Rebecca Rebouche? These beautiful woodland creatures would be a magical addition to the Christmas table, particularly if you’re a colour lover. Alternatively, group them together on the wall if you’re too scared to spoil them!
1. Dessert Plates, Rebecca Rebouche, £14 each | 2. Rebecca Rebouche Platter, £78
I chose this sweet little gaggle of measuring cups as a whimsical twist on a classic design – who wouldn’t smile whilst cooking with these? I love the little touches of gold.
The antler trend this winter has been carried through to tableware with this range of jugs, casserole dishes and platters. They’re a statement piece without shouting about it.
1. Gaggle of Geese measuring cup, £36 | 2. Stag Serveware from £68
You can find my favourites and a whole host of festive lovelies online and in store from the end of October. In the meantime…have you seen the sale?.
