George Home is one of my favourite places to pick up homeware items- they frequently have some awesome, quirky pieces that would not look out of place in Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Next or John Lewis but cost a fraction of the price they’d charge! Which means it is far cheaper place to go if you want to do some seasonal decoration.
Autumn/Winter are my favourite seasons, particularly for decorating. I love the warm cosy feel of snuggling up under blankets by candlelight with a good book- dare I say it’s the perfect hygge feeling! The items I’ve picked are perfect for a cosy autumn makeover- with plenty of copper and white!
George already had Christmas items online- so I had to restrain myself. But if you are a fan of quirky/kitsch items (or like dinosaurs!) I’d highly recommend giving them a look.
I’ve wanted a set of copper Moscow mule mugs for a while, and these are perfect! I’ve even seen this much being charged for one mug elsewhere previously. I love copper, and they’d be perfect for mulled wine or hot chocolate with mountains of cream as we get closer to christmas! I think they’d be great to make a DIY gift for a couple- paired with their favourite Christmas drink and snack!
A cosy pair of slippers are the best, and even better if they have a cute face on! These raccoon slippers are adorable, and look super cosy- they even have a fleece lining which is perfect to keep your feet toasty on chilly evenings.
I’ve looked at this cushion a few times in real life, and really like it. It’s a pretty small cushion so it’s definitely more decorative than functional but that’s not always a bad thing. It’s such a cool pattern, and I love the marble and gold look.
More copper! I think that copper adds such a warm glow to a home, particularly copper lighting. This is an awesome quirky light, and I love the steampunk vibe it’s giving off- I used to be really into the steampunk look, and even did several school projects on it! Although it’s not a look I’ve got going on in the place I live now, this would also be perfect for a modern or loft look. I really don’t need any more lights- as I’ve got nowhere to put them, but this one is just too cool to not wish for.
I think this is my favourite item on the list. I love it so much. I’m a great fan of Georges bedding- it’s soft, washes well and has the cutest designs. My last couple of Christmas bedding sets came from George, and on the bed currently I have their awesome wizard cats design! This bedding is brushed cotton so perfect for a cosy bedroom, and also has the best ever design- of camping bears! I love the cartoon We Bare Bears, and the anime Polar Bear Café- so really I can’t imagine a cooler bedding than this! Hoping I see this to pick it up!
These are pretty standard LED Candles, but I love the idea of a cosy glow, without the risk of candles- particularly if they were used in a bedroom. These are vanilla fragranced, which I haven’t seen before and think the idea sounds lovely!
- Speaker Ornament (£12)
This is such a cool ornament, and it is also supposed to amplify your phone! Once again, it’s copper! I love the idea of this, and it’d be perfect as part of a low tech chillout- with just your phone for music, and depending on how well it works I like the idea of using it outside, or when Glamping! It’s a great quirky piece that I can imagine being sold at Urban Outfitters or similar.
I’m very strongly of the belief that you need blankets for a cosy home- preferably a number of them. And I’m particularly fond of faux fur throws- so soft to cuddle up in! I really love the colour of this throw, and it would look perfect at the end of the bed, or over the arm of the sofa.
Any of these items would (in my mind) also be great as a Christmas present if you want to get a head start- I know I would certainly would be thrilled with any of them!
