A Blogger’s Christmas Wish-List

December 11, 2015
Bloggers Christmas

We asked a selection of our favourite bloggers to share the one item from Rose & Grey that they’d put on their Christmas wish list. Fingers crossed their friends and families are reading this!

Lou Little Green Shed

Lou from Little Green Shed chose our Copper Mirror

I have a thing for mirrors.  My small Victorian terrace seems terribly dark in the winter, and I love to bounce light around the house using mirrors.  This one is on trend in beautiful metallic copper, and the circular shape is unusual.  It will look right at home on my dark grey dining room wall.

Victoria Apartment Number 4

Victoria from Apartment Number 4 chose our Kinfolk Home Book

As an interiors blogger, and a collector of beautiful coffee table books, this latest read from Kinfolk would be the ideal find under my Christmas tree. Looking at a variety of homes across the world, including in Scandinavia, the US and Asia, this book discovers the secrets of simple living and explores the interiors of those who follow that way of life. Plus, the book is beautifully put together, in the pared back style that Kinfolk is renowned for. It would be a shame to keep it hidden away on a dusty bookshelf.

Rachel The Ordinary Lovely

Rachel from The Ordinary Lovely chose our Lambswool Knitted Flamingo Socks

This year, I’m putting these socks at the top of my Christmas list. Forget dreary packs of three with jingle bells written on them, I want them long, I want them made of super soft lambswool, and I want them to be adorned with with pretty pink flamingos. And this pair has the added bonus of coming up to the top of my wellies. It’s love!

Belinda Love Lee

Belinda from Belinda Love Lee chose our Nostalgia Twisted Flex Pendant Copper Lighting Set

Oh gosh, to choose just one thing from the Rose and Grey website is pretty much impossible! But if it came down to the wire, I think I’d choose this flex pendant lighting set. I’ve always wanted a little industrial light hanging from above my bed, making for the perfect reading light. This one is just beautifully minimal and industrial all in one!

Abi These Four Walls

Abi from These Four Walls chose our Ball Terrarium

I’d like to receive one of the ball terraniums. I love how the pale wood and ball stopper add a sleek Scandinavian twist to a classic object, and I could use them for all sorts of things – displaying succulents (I have a bit of an obsession with them!), storing bits and bobs, growing herbs… I’d group the wide and tall version together for extra effect, and put them on the mantlepiece to really show them off.

Janice Issitt

Janice from Janice Issitt Life & Style chose our Tibetan Sheepskin Rug

Nothing says cosy winter style more than a sheepskin rug, they are my winter essential.  I often put them on chairs and seats as a warmer rather than on the floor.  I feel they have a timeless quality and can feature in styling looks for either retro Seventies or rustic Scandinavian themes, their versatility is such. I love both colours from Rose and Grey, the grey is also beautiful and I would ideally put one of each on  my wish list. I had better get writing to Santa !

Jen Little Birdie

Jen from Little Birdie chose our Velvet Cushion Covers.

As I’m currently updating our living room and choosing a new sofa, I’d love these velvet cushion covers. In stunning autumnal shades of rust, forest green and mustard, they would look really good against a charcoal grey fabric and offer a real touch of luxury.

Jeska Lobster & Swan

Jeska from Lobster & Swan chose our Zinc Shelf Mirror

I love this little vintage style cutie! I have been gathering a collection of boot fair and junk shop mirrors over the past few years and this would fit in beautifully, and it’s somewhere for me to put my lip balm to stop it getting lost!!

Lucy Capture by Lucy

Lucy from Capture by Lucy chose our Urban Botanicals Fern Print in the Oak Hanging Poster Frames

I just have a complete obsession with botanical prints at the moment and I adore the simplicity of these when hung in the contemporary hanging frames. They have a real Scandinavian influence, calming colour way and would be perfect for a hallway, living room or bedroom. It’s great they are part of a set too, so you could ask for another for a birthday present after Christmas and collect the set!

Caro The Twinkle Diaries

Caro from The Twinkle Diaries chose our Zinc Topped Table

I have had my eyes on this gorgeous table for a while! It’s the kind of piece that will only get better with age plus it’s the perfect accompaniment to Christmas dinner — with such a stylish top, there’d be no need for a table cloth.
