Today’s Christmas gift guide was such a joy to put together- every single item is top of my homeware must haves. Sigh. Aren’t they all just so gorgeous?
If there’s one thing I absolutely cannot get enough of, it’s textiles. They really make a home and, if like me you’re renting, it’s one of the easiest ways to make a place feel like your own. One of the things I loved doing whilst we settled in here was living in the house and getting to know the space for a while, making plans for where I’d like to put rugs, runners, throws etc and keeping my eyes open for the perfect design along the way.
My choices are full of texture; from handwoven wool and jute, to the geometric shapes and birch tree bark, but they’re also in keeping with my love of black, white and grey. Quite restful, don’t you think? I’ve added in a touch of soft pink and mustard yellow too to see how it might look as I’m toying with the idea of bringing in soft pink to soften out the monochrome a little. The house is slowly starting to take shape, but I’d love
all one or two of these pieces to make it feel complete. You never know…
