With Halloween & Bonfire night now past, the countdown to Christmas has officially begun, and we were very kindly invited along by the team at John Lewis in Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow to have a sneak peek at their thousands of new festive decorations, accessories and gift ideas.
With Nicola’s new flat and Lindsay keen to update her Christmas haul, we were prepared to come away with a massive wishlist, and John Lewis didn’t disappoint! We love their mix of traditional, aptly named ‘snowdrift’ which has all the romance of Lapland with their snow frosted trees and metallic baubles, to boutique, which drew on the 1920s Art Deco era and used rich colours like gold, champagne and metallic blue. Our favourite definitely was ‘Christmas Dreaming’ which was very fun, quirky and playful, with a host of cute and crazy animal characters which we were totally ‘ooohing’ and ‘aaahing’ over. What’s not to love about dog decorations?
Hmmm… our problem? Well apart from the fact we can’t buy everything, we tend to never stick to the one theme or like to co-ordinate too much in our houses when it comes to decor. Thus a mash up of different styles. So cue a montage of pics of all the things we love and now totally want!
As you can see we’ve got a lot of love for Robins… Oh John Lewis you put other Christmas shops to shame. They’re Festive shop is located in the basement so pop in for a wee nose if passing.
We’ll be doing our Christmas wishlist on the blog pretty soon, and we’ve also ot an eye on a few of their hampers, but in the meantime we’re on the hunt for these! Please, please, please come back into stock!
