You might have noticed a slight Christmas theme recently, including the traditions we’ve kept from our childhood and bought into our own little family, in collaboration with Wayfair.
It’s no secret that I absolutely love this time of year, the cold, bright days, the magic of Christmas on the horizon, twinkly lights, mulled wine, it’s just all so flipping beautiful and I can’t get enough of all of it.
For me, it’s my favourite time to be at home too, the evenings get dark quickly, which is the perfect excuse to get cosy and comfortable on the sofa with your loved ones. I seriously think I should move to Norway, where hygge was actually created. Because that is my lifestyle, all wrapped up in a big fluffy blanket.
I love looking for ideas and inspiration, as well as doing a little window shopping, so while I was looking for Christmas decorations on Wayfair, I may have spotted a few other bits and bobs that have made their way into my saved items…….! (There is no may not, I have completely saved a whole load of things!)
I’ve picked out six of them here, which, I think give you the perfect setting for a cosy weekend at home. If we had snow, a Chinese takeaway coming and a whole series on Netflix to watch, I think I’d have my perfect evening.
Cushions are probably the easiest way to give the room a different feel, and it can be done on the cheap, which is always a bonus, especially at this time of year. Don’t be afraid to go wild with colours and patterns, the brighter, the bolder, the better, in my opinion. If you’re scared of adding too much colour, plain blankets and throws can be a safe way of bringing hygge to your home, this synthetic Mongolian fur one will wrap you up in a huge hug, and look good while it’s just thrown across the back of the sofa.
If, like me, you like your living room to have colour, texture and pattern, then Christmas is literally your chance to crazy with it all. No one will tell you the colours don’t match, because, it’s Christmas. And you might find that once you’ve started experimenting, you’ll never want to go back to plain and matching again!
