If you missed last years trend Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) it’s definitely not too late to jump on the band wagon. This Danish tradition celebrates the colder, darker nights, and could even make you look forward to them. The main goal here is creating a sensation of cosiness. A place to relax. Cosy textures and warm natural colours create a feeling of snugness. Rich, cinnamon tones add a feeling of warmth, and mimic fire. Combine knits, textured furniture, and plenty of cushions & throws. Candles are your best friend, try cinnamon and wild orange scents to really embrace the winter months. Create a reading nook in a comfy chair – somewhere to snuggle up with a hot drink and a good book, or even take up a new craft.
We have been working on our Christmas collection since the beginning of September, and yesterday we finally released our first product … Personalised Papercut Baubles!
There are ten designs to choose from including; Snowflakes, Fawn, Robin, Feather, Dala Rocking Horse, Santa Sleigh, Stag head, Christmas Wreath, Little Town, and Mistletoe. All come in a luxury gift box with a magnetic ribbon close, that’s perfect for storing them away as a keepsake year after year.
Winter is coming … and so are winter floral’s! Edgier and darker than usual, these in trend prints are certain to make a statement. Oversized blooms on rich blacks are key, combined with dark painted matt wood (no sheen). Perfect in period homes to create drama, choose late Victorian, saturated colours. Layer sumptuous velvet’s to add glamour and warmth, and cut glass vases clustered in varying heights, shapes, and tones of colour.
If you’re ready to put the floral’s to bed for Autumn/Winter, then this could be the trend for you. Mustard can be a daunting colour, but with a few well chosen, signature pieces, it can be the perfect accent colour to brighten up those grey winter days. Rich textures are everything with this trend, think thick knits, deep velvet’s and mix with two tone prints. Grey works a dream with mustard, but if you’re feeling brave and want the wow factor, combine with a deep matt teal.

This playful and fun interior trend is sure to brighten any room. Iconic Swiss cheese plant leaves make the base of most tropical prints, while exotic birds such as parrots and cockatoos will be centre stage. Flamingo pink and jungle green with accents of gold, are the dream combination for this lively trend. Finish with neon lighting and pina coladas all round.
There’s something rather relaxing about the colour of the season. It draws the outside in, whether it’s a fresh and light pastel or a deep, sumptuous dark forest green. Rich in botanical prints, it’s all about the leaf, so time to stock up on those house plants! Combine with natural materials, such as twine, cork and untreated wood to nail this laid back look. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite inspirations from pinterest, and we suspect this trend will be here to stay for the winter …
There’s nothing better than adding a nice, shiny, new product to our shop, and this weeks ‘vows’ papercut has been a fun one. We love the old saying ‘may you never steal, lie or cheat’ in our display piece (leap year, anyone?), read it in an Irish accent and it really comes to life. It can be personalised with your own vows, names and dates.
One of our main projects over the next few months, is to expand our wedding collection. It’s such a special time for a couple, and we more than anyone (*ahem, perfectionists*) understand the need for every tiny detail to be perfect. We want to create a range of products that are beautiful, stylish, and most importantly, personal. It’s funny how such simple things can represent a person or couple. Us, for example, could be defined by those that know us, by our hunter wellies. We wear them all the time to walk our dog. Our personalised commissions are made up of all these symbols, traits and experiences that make a person who they are. Which is why it is such a personal gift to give.
So why shouldn’t wedding stationary be just as personal? There’s so many elements of a wedding, and we can’t wait to start creating our new collection. Keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates. What would you like to see us create in our wedding collection?
We have long since been fans of Timorous Beasties work. If your not familiar with their work, you really need to check out their wallpapers, as they blur the lines between decor and art. The pieces that first drew us in were the toile designs. From a distance, a skyline of London or Edinburgh, but on closer inspection you’ll find something a little deeper. We loved the idea of hidden details. The more you look, the more you see.
With our new collection, we wanted to create something with more meaning, that asks questions, that draws from the modern world. There is a kind of juxtaposition between what you want to see and reality.
The ‘Black Roses’ Collection has a darker feel than our usual work. It plays on the idea of thoughts and issues that aren’t being discussed, that perhaps should be. There are currently three pieces in the collection, which we so lovingly refer to as the ‘clock’ one, the ‘hunting’ one and, the ‘desk’ one. Which one’s your favourite?
