This month I’ve been to a fair few Christmas in July press previews and I’ve gotta say I’m well and truly not ready for the holiday season. There’s something just not quite right about looking at stockings and fairy lights when the weather outside truly has been delightful. Regardless of the gingerbread houses and the christmas trees – I’m just so not filled with excitement quite yet – there has been a remarkable amount of homeware making it on to my AW homeware wishlist and I’m prepping to fill my own interior with earthy greys and marble tones. Inspired by the Nina+Co x ATT collaboration as pictured above, I’m dreaming of getting back to nature and supporting independent labels over the colder period, drinking plenty of mulled wine from beautiful ceramics while of course not forgetting my graphic roots while I’m at it. Below are some of the pieces I’ve lusted over at shows, some small designers for bigger brands and some newer start ups that are going it alone with their own shops. All have sparked something in me when I’ve found them and I’m telling ya that I’ll be working on being extra nice to ensure that I make Santa’s good list come December.
