Christmas 2016 has arrived at Petersham Nurseries
, always a pleasure to visit and always an inspiration for the holiday season.
This year there is a focus on all things angelic with white metallic angel wings for wall and tree decorations and sweet retro looking padded angel tree decorations which are joined by winter woodland creatures.
The odd exotic decoration features too with pink flamingo tree ornaments and glittery glass bird baubles.
The beautiful Rue Verte
is my new fave store in Copenhagen. Lush interiors in the ‘now’ current dark shades, striking photography and gorgeous lighting make this a must see on any Copenhagen trip.
There are striking portrait photographs by Trine Sondergaard, huge ceramic lights by Lee Broom and the most wonderful huge headboard you just stack against the bedroom wall plus lush velvet cushions, rubberised fake panelling painted to ...

Classic and traditional, ...

The cafe and restaurant are decorated with lit up trees and giant baubles and there are hundreds of fresh Christmas trees to choose from.
The store also has some of the most amazing gift items plus interior objets and Indian sourced furniture and antique mirrors.
Most are on ...
A quick round up of Christmas wreaths so far and this year I have noticed fewer on the streets near me, is it economic? I’m not sure as lots of people retain their wreaths for many years, maybe its still too early.

is a new combined store with an emphasis on unique and great design, there is a very cool cafe in one half of the store and a carefully curated edit of great interior design home objet in the other.
