It's mid-July, and in magazine world, that means Christmas. Although none of us can ever be prepared for the deluge of gingerbread and tinsel in 30-degree weather, we're always happy to get a glimpse of what's to come.
Our latest preview was hosted by the talented team from HomeSense, who never fail to impress. Here are some of the great pieces you should keep an eye out for come fall. Let's begin with furniture:
Expect to see some great pieces from Drexel Heritage (brown-and-brass hutch), oversized rustic storage, cosy settees and smaller, Scandi-style pieces for the home. That little grey chair and ottoman are the perfect size for condo living.
The rugs were quite impressive as well. Here are a few standouts:
Here's a Thom Felicia for Safavieh rug (above). Not nearly as pricey as you'd think!
These cosy neutral rugs are sure to warm up any space. I love the striped, fringed rugs. So Scandinavian!
And of course, HomeSense always shines in the accessories/gifts department:
Beautifully framed fabrics and gemstone bookends make perfect gifts.
Warm-metal cutlery looks gorgeous on a holiday table. This set is actually affordable!
I loved HomeSense's solution to a drab office: jewelry boxes! Paperclips never looked so good...
Keep an eye out, as I've already spotted a few of pieces of their fall collection on store shelves. Happy hunting!
