With days getting shorter and Christmas getting nearer we can all use a bit of hygge in our life. You know, that feeling of coziness. This Danish & Norwegian word that everyone is obsessed about lately has us all longing for those little moments that makes us happy and relaxed. With synonyms like cozy, comfortable, warm & welcoming, hygge is definitely the way to go!
So with these words in mind, I have created a little compilation of items that will get you into the spirit!
One thing I love about autumn is to go out and get a new pajamas! It really makes those cold and grey nights more fun when you can slip into a new cozy outfit while watching your favourite tv program and drinking a hot drink.
Here is a selection I’ve put together, ranging from warm snuggly ones to quirky cool ones for anyone not living in a cold country. You know, you can still hygge no matter what the temperature is ;-)
Cute and cozy flannel pajamas set from Monki with eyes on.
Who else is obsessed with ceramics? After I visited the home of ceramics this summer, a place called Grottaglie in the south of Italy (which I highly recommend to anyone who loves ceramics), I have been browsing online for beautiful pieces. I especially love when ceramics are handmade with a personal touch, when each of the pieces are unique.
Here are some of my current favourites from Etsy;
This cute planter by ebenotti is the perfect addition to any home, great to have succulents or any small plants in. Each of the planters are handmade with the simplistic herringbone patterned carved out and inlaid with black stain.
Loving this adorable spoon rest designed by noemarin to keep your kitchen bench clean while you’re cooking. With it’s simple design and clean lines, this piece can fit in anyones home no matter the style, and it can also be used to place your tea bag or spoon on.
A fun and modern way to display your rings. These handmade marble ring cones by paperandclaystudio are so stunning, they also come in different colours if you are not as big of a marble-fan as me.
How adorable are these cup sized colanders for washing berries by FringeandFettle? This is perfect for washing off single servings of fruits or veggies to add to your meals.
Beautiful pink porcelain box by YuliaTsukerman. It can be used to store jewellery, for cotton pads, candy or any other trinkets of your choice.And as its produced with a spoon slot you can also use it in the kitchen as a sugar bowl or salt cellar. Very handy!
I love hanging planters, and these ones by spinspin are so characteristic.
They are hand formed and then painted with black dashes, making each one slightly different and unique.
These polka-dot ceramic spoons by Coconutstudiopottery comes as a set of two and are perfect for stirring with in your tea or coffee.
Lovely pair of handmade ceramic glasses by MaevoStudio perfect for tea or coffee. They are tinted with different colours to get a beautiful surface, and glazed internally and on the edge.
Something I noticed from walking around at the Milano Design Week was a trend of paint splatter on different surfaces. Its quite a fun and playful effect that goes really well with the trendy pastel colours but also makes a nice statement in black & white. I have therefore done a little round-up of products with this paint splatter textured effect on;
Loving the Plissé Folders by ATWTP for HAY, they are great archive folders for storing your drawings, pictures or documents. Team them up with the Tower Blocks for even more colour splatter fun on your desk.
The new Last Stool Splatter family by Max Lamb for HEM is made from just a single sheet of turned metal, hand-painted and then fired at 800C for a perfect enamel finish. This could be a nice and subtle way to add the trend into your home.
Studio Oyama makes beautiful handmade and hand painted ceramic items like this side plate, a nice decoration to have on the table or even hang up on the wall.
Or why not put up a poster with paint splatter effect on like this beautiful Orb Éclipse by Puldefranck?
What do you think of this trend? Is it something you would add hints of in your home? It could be a good way to literally add a splash of colour!
