16 Interior Bloggers and their top Interior Christmas wish......

16 Interior Bloggers and their top Interior Christmas wish......

A couple of weeks ago I was sat having coffee with a friend who is moving house in a couple of weeks and we got to talking about her existing furniture not being right for her new home, this inevitably lead to the 'what we would buy for our homes if money were no object' chat. 

We all see beautiful interior items in magazines, on Pinterest and on Instagram that we would love to have in our own homes...... Often they are beyond our reach, perhaps just for the moment, or maybe they will never be affordable and we know they will just remain a dream, but it doesn't stop us admiring and lusting after them thats for sure! So, this got me thinking with Christmas around the corner, what I would ask Santa for if he gave me three interior wishes....... Which led to me also wondering what some of my favourite fellow Interior Bloggers would wish for this Christmas......

This is, of course, not as easy as it seems. I would have preferred twenty wishes but I managed to get it down to the three things I would love to see in my home on Christmas morning ( If you're reading Santa- I have been a reasonably good girl this year!)

 

1/ Large Mud Bead Chandelier (in Anthracite) £3,750

 Inspired by the fabulous vintage cabinet in the home of  @hilaryandflo  I would absolutely love this 1920's cabinet in my home, I'm not sure where I'd put it and I might have to move a wall but such gorgeousness would be worth it!

3/ SALOME Mango Wood Bed £862.50

 That wood and gold headboard is now regularly in my dreams..... I have done some serious nagging in the ear of Mr H, as yet with no positive response, but this is one I'll keep going on at as we do need a new bed!

 Just look at that  headboard with a beautiful interplay of relief diamonds in wood and gold metal..... Just beautiful.

 This divine charcoal painted with brass interior finish bateau bath is top of Phoebes wish list for her bathroom....... 'The bath has always been my safe place and ever since I can remember I have always bathed everyday, never showered. It is somewhere I retreat to when I am tired, I lounge in before a fun event and I watch films in to distract myself if my anxiety is getting a little bit too much. We have just bought a new house and the first room that is due a renovation is the bathroom, this bath is top of the list. Has to be in black, with the brass interior. I would spend many an hour in that!' ...... Wouldn't we all, its the bath of dreams!

 Ruthie says of this sofa from the french design house Petite friture 'who wouldn't want to sit on a candy floss vision of sophistication!? I am absolutely in love with this piece, the dark legs and dark back stop it looking too carousel like, but the bold sense of colour, quilted textures and an abundance of cushions to get comfy on make it me perfect piece' ..... and I have to say, I agree with her!

Angulo Rug Rectangle (green 300x200cm ) £3,495

www.arthide.co

 Katie chose this incredible rug created from premium quality cowhide leather, sourced as a by-product. It is cut to precise hexagonal shapes and then pieced together using commercial grade nylon thread. As a family of 6 she ideally wanted a food retardant rug that would survive the abuse of her four messy bin lids, but lets be honest, beauty comes before practicality when you're hoping Santa grants your wish eh!

 Unfortunately for Nickie, who is an online retailer and one of three bloggers at www.style-squeeze.com, these busts have now sold, so Santa will have to work some extra magic to get them too her for Christmas...... Or accidentally knock them into his sack if he spots them next to a mince pie and port!
