Make Ruem | Gift Guide for Unique Home Decor Lovers
I do believe I have found my favourite home decor website of all time. One of the best things about blogging and collaborating with amazing brands is when you discover a brand you totally fall in love with. I am so excited to be introduced, and to now introduce you, to Make Ruem. Full of chunky knitted textiles, metallic star prints, wooden candle holders, concrete tableware and stags galore; it’s as if this shop is made for me!
Without further ado, here is my handpicked gift guide featuring my five favourite items:
It was impossible to pick one candle, so I’m going to show you the lot! Both these homely wooden and urban concrete candles are filled with deliciously unique scents. Tempt your senses with salted grapefruit, sea salt & sage or leather & oakmoss to name only a few. They range from a very affordable £8.99 to £31.99. Not only will you be giving a gorgeous candle gift, they also double up as decorative pots once the candle has burnt out (evenly might I add!)
Stag Picture Prince of the Forest Beige
I do have a bit of a thing for stags. You may have seen my gorgeous stag canvas before which is above my fireplace. There is something so mystical, enchanting and magnificent about these creatures. I saw one in Germany with the most humungous antlers. It was so beastly, beautiful and magical. I could have stopped and stared at it all day!
This stag picture is built up using layers of paper giving it an interesting depth which will create a talking point in any room. I’d opt for the larger 40x40cm at £59.99, but there’s also a smaller 26x26cm for just £34.99.
Metallic Silver Star Cushion Dark Grey
I’m a sucker for a star print and love this grey with silver colourway. This cushion will instantly add a touch of elegant bling to a sofa or bed. It would make an excellent Christmas gift for her. Who doesn’t love a star print, right? Grey has been a big colour trend in 2016 and it looks set to continue into 2017 too.
Concrete Gold Geometric Bowl
There is something ever so satisfying about this bowl. It’s almost as though I shouldn’t like it with so much gold, but I absolutely do. The metropolitan cold concrete outside contrasts with the shiny glistening gold inside and somehow they work really well together. I have a large rustic farmhouse dining table and this would look perfect as a centre piece, continuing with this strange complimentary contrasting theme! And, of course, it would make a wonderfully unusual present for a mere £14.
Large Geometric Lantern
If you’re feeling flush and want to indulge in an individual, timeless and beautifully crafted lantern, the Large Geometric Lantern is for you (or your very, very lucky recipient). This stunning piece is one of the higher priced items at £115. It is by far my favourite item at Make Ruem. Our house is filled with natural wooden items and this would sit beautifully in any room with the warm glow of a flickering candle. I’d love to get creative with this lantern though. I notice it has a hanging hook and would make an extraordinary lightshade with an oversized Thomas Edison style filament bulb in the middle.
Makereum.com is filled with plenty more unusual and highly desirable items. It’s not hard to see why they are called Make Ruem as you’ll want to make lots of room in your home for everything you discover in their online store!
