Christmas comes to Nordic House!
We’ve been beavering away at Nordic House getting ready for Christmas for months now – following our buying trip to Scandinavia earlier in the summer to find the perfect festive pieces to bring home and share with the UK. Our buying trips are one of my most favourite parts of our work – there’s really nothing better for me than visiting our suppliers and discovering all the wonderful new treats they have in store… I really do become like a kid in a sweet shop and Alan has to stop me from ordering everything!
Silver bell wreath, £59.95
As usual, there were so many wonderful products to choose from, which made picking our collection a tricky task! So to simplify things this year, we decided to keep true to our Scandi roots and stick to a restrained and elegant colour palette of red, white and silver.
Scandinavian advent candle, £12
One of our key motivations with this year’s range was to include a variety of different decorations and accessories, which can easily be mixed and matched to create a stunning and cohesive festive scheme. We also wanted to pick plenty of timeless pieces that could be brought out year after year and still have the same charm and appeal…
Pine cone candle, £11.95
Best of all, we’ve got some really quirky, unusual items in the collection, including a selection of really lovely silver acorns and dramatic pine-cone candles. I also really love the classic gingham and pinstripe table linens because they are subtle enough for year-round use, which means no sad faces having to pack them away on January 6!
Here are just a few more of my favourite pieces – for the full range, visit our Christmas shop.
Red gingham table linens, from £12 for a pair of napkins
Metallic silver acorns, from £7.50
Linen Christmas stocking, £24.95
Our first catalogue!
And there’s something else we’ve been working on recently, that I’ve been VERY excited about… I haven’t been able to talk about it till now, but we have just finished working on our first ever catalogue! It’s been lots of work putting it all together, with some long days on photoshoots in beautiful locations and hours agonising over the cover and text inside, but I’m truly thrilled and happy to have just signed off the final proofs!
The catalogue will be winging its way to our loyal customers in the first week of November, but I thought I’d share a sneak peek of the cover with you here – what do you think?!
I absolutely love the cover shot – it sums up everything about Nordic House just perfectly for me! And the beautiful faded grey and Scandi white colour scheme represents what I love the most about Scandinavian style. After all these weeks working on it, I really can’t wait to share it with the world and hear what you think…
