Brrrr, the cold is truly setting in here in the UK, and we’ve swapped our nights at the bar for cosy nights in on the sofa with a warm blanket, Netflix and a cup of hot cocoa! Long gone are the days of braving bare legs in minus degree temperatures, nope, you won’t be finding us freezing our pins off! You’ll more likely find us on our iPads scrolling through Pinterest gaining plenty of home inspo for the winter season. We think this might be called adulting?
There’s something about this time of year that encourages us to up our homeware game and add a few new additions for the hibernation season. We’re talking luxurious throws, beautiful cushions, and a new home fragrance.
We’ve teamed up with online boutique Sand and Salt to bring you our favourite interior purchases every gal should make before turning 30! Here are our must-haves:
A thick and cosy throw is an absolute winter essential! Invest in a quality design that will see you through many chilly winters. We adore this traditional herringbone style, adding a touch of country chic to your home. Mix it up and layer with a few throws in different patterns to add a contemporary twist. It’s the perfect sofa companion.
Finding the perfect seasonal scent can be a challenge, is it just us that thinks ‘pine’ smells like bathroom cleaner? Anyway, we’re totally in LOVE with this Christmas Spice candle, offering a truly unforgettable festive scent. Bring bursts of Christmas into your home with a warm blend of cinnamon, moroccan cedar wood and tangy sweet orange. It’s also a great gift for your bestie, mum or sis!
Just because it’s cold and grey outside doesn’t mean your home should also lack colour. Add a burst of punchy coral to your lounge with these beautiful embroidered palm tree cushions. Inspired by the palm trees of the French Riveria, you can dream of warmer climates whilst you turn your thermostat up and put on your second pair of socks! Oh to live in the Caribbean….
Stars are SO on trend right now and that doesn’t just stop at clothing, bring this trend into the home with this beautiful lightweight throw. Ideal for both summer and winter, this blanket is extremely versatile and looks just fabulous draped over the back of a sofa.
Not only does this bag look fabulous styled with a casual outfit (we’re thinking straight leg jeans and a breton top), it also looks gorgeous in the home! Hang it on a hook in your hallway to add a little style, as well as enjoying an extremely useful and chic tote bag. Use it for your groceries, or if you’re lucky enough to be jetting off this winter it will make for a fantastic beach bag. We’re not jealous AT ALL.
Every girl needs a pretty makeup bag and we’re pretty much obsessed with this design from Elizabeth Scarlett. The shade of pink, the beautiful embroidery, luxury gold zip, it’s got it all. Ideal for girls on the go, this pouch is handy for carrying your toiletries and cosmetics on city breaks.
