We love IMAGE Interiors & Living, and getting a write-up on our Christmas fare from them is the highlight of the year so far. Nothing compares to being noticed by one of Ireland's interiors magazines and our daily source of design and decor inspiration. #daymade
Here's the piece by the talented Kate Phelan.
Now that it’s December, we’re officially allowed to go Christmas crazy. Eclectic new Dublin-based online homewares retailer home-lust.com has arrived just in time…
Nothing flirts with that thin line between pleasant hype and panicky hysteria quite like the build-up to Christmas, especially when it comes to gift-giving. A certain amount of frenzy is all part of the joy of the season – it wouldn’t be Christmas without some last-minute Penneys power-shopping among crazed crowds – but this year we’re planning to keep the panic stations to a minimum by sourcing thoughtful gifts online.
Mulled wine in hand, Michael Bublé crooning carols in the background, we’ll be leisurely browsing home-lust.com looking for special gifts for our loved ones. An online retailer of Scandinavian and European homewares, Dublin-based Home Lust was founded in November by a savvy team of interiors journalists and design bloggers, including a former member of the Image Interiors & Living team, Diana Valentine. Seeking to offer distinctive design pieces to Irish and European shoppers at a reasonable price point, the site boasts a considered selection of beautifully designed products from brands like Broste, Madam Stolz, HK Living, Haus and Vermissen.
Their carefully composed collections also include fair-trade products and artisan craft works from makers in Portugal, India, Morocco and Turkey, and you’re sure to find something sublime to leave under the tree for your significant other/sibling/self among their wares. We’ve already spotted five admirable items we’d love to unwrap on Christmas morning.
