We absolutely adore this time of year; Christmas is around the corner, and we can snuggle up and get toasty by the fire in our favourite cosy pyjamas. Christmas is also a great time to revamp our bedrooms and guest rooms, ready for the festive period and staying guests. From Armoires, bedside tables, new chests of drawers and gorgeous winter bedding, there are so many opportunities to turn your home into a festive retreat.
We love armoires, not just in the bedrooms, but in every room of the house (Georgia has one in her pantry). They make a statement, and really add a rustic and chic look. The decadent French style Amour 2-Door Mirror Fronted French Armoire is the perfect addition to your bedroom, not only do they look magnificent, they also allow for storage and space saving too. Perfect for housing your luxury French bedding and blankets, as well as any ‘non-festive’ ornaments (to make way for the festive ones!). We love storing our luxury silk nightwear in them too. The mirrored doors add an illusion of extra space within the room, as well as offering a great place to get ready. For the guest bedroom, we cannot think of a more ideal piece than the Provencal Antique White Baby Showcase. The antique white armoire has internal shelves, allowing you to, as the name says, showcase your gorgeous ornaments and pieces. It’s gentle curvature lends itself to displaying some spectacular festive pieces, such as the Aurelia Candelabra or the Seduced Angel Flocked Figure. They also double up as a place to store all the Christmas decorations once the festive period is over in January too!
Bed Side Tables
There is something about bedside tables we absolutely adore, and no bedroom is complete without them. Not only are they functional, but they are also aesthetically pleasing and allow for more decoration to your room. The stunning Provencal 2-Drawer White Rattan Bedside Tables are a must. Matching the baby showcase armoire, they’re the piece of furniture any guest bedroom needs. Allowing for easy storage, they are also a great base to create a dreamy nightstand. An essential bedside table accessory is a lamp, and the Amelia Distressed Table Lamps compliment these pieces of furniture exquisitely. Why not also add a L'Orangerie Luxury Reed Diffuser to keep the room smelling great too?
Chest of Drawers
Although it may seem a given in your bedroom; a set of luxury French chest of drawers is a good way to not only add elegance to your guest bedroom but to hide away anything you might not want on show. Our luxury Provencal Classic White Chest of Drawers are classy and sophisticated. With three large drawers, they can double up as a hideaway for big winter jumpers and your guests items too. The large surface area on top is an ideal base for adding those finishing touches, such as a small Christmas tree or ornament!
No winter room is complete without some deliciously scented candles, and we have some divine Christmas aromas. The quintessential smell of sandalwood evokes festive cheer, and our Casafina Luxury Sandalwood Candle fits the bill perfectly! Candles can be lit prior to your guests’ arrival, to add a feel of cosiness and warmth to the room – as well as a glorious scent.
We have collaborated with Sussex-based print designer Elizabeth Ockford, to hide a snowflake in one of the most popular designs from our range of wallpapers, the Amelia Birdcage wallpaper is named after Amelia Mary Earhart, the American aviation pioneer and author.
