Each week, we bring you something a little bit different from the last, whether it be the latest design news, a classic design revisited, a recent exhibition or trip or an exclusive guest edit from an influential designer or blogger. Remember, we love to hear your feedback, so why not let us know what you think about our blog posts by email or Twitter? Enjoy!
Guest Edit by Fifi McGee
Meet Fifi McGee, the guest editor for our Christmas Gift Guide.
An interiors and lifestyle blogger living just outside of the wonderful town of Brighton, Fifi regularly writes to inspire others with creative ideas for the home.
With no real creative direction, Fifi started her blog in 2012 to demonstrate her love for writing and to share her life and ideas with others. Now working in marketing and events, Fifi fills her spare time with plenty of baking, decorating and time spent snapping photos for Instagram!
For our Christmas Gift Guide, Fifi has selected 9 of her favourite gifts plus her dream Nest.co.uk product and has added her own personal twist by describing what she loves about them and how you can style her chosen products yourself.
1. Ferm Living Remix Blanket
The choice of colours and pattern create the perfect combination for a striking focal point on any bed. I particularly love the contrasting trim along the bottom edge, which gives that cosy and wintery feel.
2. Anglepoise Type 75 Mini Desk Lamp
This quirky lamp is ideal for smaller spaces and has a fantastic masculine shape to it. I'd opt for a bold colour such as Signal Red or Powder Blue, so he can pop it in a reading corner or on a crisp white desk to inject some personality!
3. Kartell Jelly Vase in Rose
Why not deliver a stunning set of white roses filled inside this beautiful Kartell vase? For girlier personalities, opt for Rose pink and for a woman that oozes sophistication, go for the Crystal or Smoke versions. The vase can easily be made into a prominent feature on a mantelpiece of filled with retro sweets for guests to pick from on a coffee table.
4. Ferm Living Enter Mirror
This minimalist mirror is perfect for strapping onto a wardrobe rail or clothing rack, making it easy to reposition around the home. I adore its classic simplicity!
5. Magis Julian Chair
Buying for nieces, nephews or your own kids this Christmas? They'll feel super grown up with their own playful chair at the dining table over dinner. Available in an assortment of bold colours, these chairs would add a quirky touch to the garden once summer is back in.
6. Ferm Living Elle Elephant Cushion
If you're looking for child-friendly accessories for your kid's bedroom, then treat them to a cushion from Ferm Living's range. I love how fun yet practical these cushions are!
7. Ferm Living Candleholder String
I love how much versatility this candle holder gives you, as it can be positioned in any which way your recipient desires. I'd make the candle holder long and straight or round and wreath-like on a simple white or pillar-box red table runner. They'd make the perfect gift for a house-proud friend.
8. Tom Dixon Scent London Diffuser
Know somebody who adores London? Surprise them with this elegant diffuser that captures the pure essence of the capital. The copper vessel is simply gorgeous!
Fifi's favourite gift
The pattern on this cushion is daring and bold and would look incredible on any sofa or placed on a simple wooden chair. I’ve just purchased a brand new chocolate brown Chesterfield sofa and I’m currently on the lookout for eye-catching cushions and colourful furniture to give the room more personality. The Wrong for Hay range offers the perfect inspiration.
Dream product for the home
If I could choose just one thing for my home, it would have to be the Cassina 619 Meyer May Writing Desk. I love the vintage old-school desk look and the warm cherry wood. Swoon!
