nordic christmas

so, it may only just be august, but all this gloomy weather has got me looking forward to the festive season - cosy warm blankets, cups of tea and home made soups - yum! this will be my first christmas in my new house, last christmas was a stressful occasion, i was in between jobs and in between houses – so i didn’t even get the chance to decorate!

i’ve been pinning some of my favourite nordic/scandinavian style christmas ideas over the past few days, and it’s got me really excited for purchasing my first christmas tree! my living room is predominantly grey, with touches of  pewter purple – which fits perfectly with my love of a monochrome christmas.

i think this year my colour scheme will be black and white, with grey and silver decorations - though i might experiment by adding a little gold! i love the idea of using the DIY letter bunting from this modern life, to decorate the walls with lovely festive phrases. light string cotton balls make a great, softer alternative to LED string lights, they would be great added to the tree! i love paper decorations and these patterned monochrome ones from minico are a great way to get crafty at home.

'no scrubs' tee (*) - house of junk

house of junk are an upcoming uk street wear brand, hailing from stokes croft, bristol. With their straight talking, fun loving, no mess attitude house of junk live for the moment, inspired by adventures, artists and travel.

the brands latest collection includes everything from classic oversized tees, crop tops, bodysuits and beanies. the diverse collection really shows the brands creative and eclectic side, with bold pop colours, slogans and classic styles.

kara and nicki, the brains and beauty behind the brand work together on all the designing and art directing for house of junk. their eccentric attitude really comes across in the lookbooks and collections, with the girls currently doing the festival rounds through the uk – keep an eye out for the girl, spreading the house of junk love!

my favourite style has to be the ‘no scrubs’ tee, bringing back a ton of 90s memories from my childhood, the baby pink takes me back to a time of denim dungarees, tommy girl perfume and braided hair. the quality of the tee is amazing, it fits like a dream and is super soft. i can pair it with easy jeans, or go all out with a pair of dungarees.
