Editors Pick of the Month

Stay cozy with our editor's top picks for January

It's the end of January and the cold weather is showing no signs of stopping. With that in mind, my favoruite products of the month are all perfect for achieving that cosy, wintery look in your home.

The Winchester Rustic Wooden Blanket Chest is one of the newer additions to the Modish Living website. The beautiful chest is the perfect storage solution for placing at the end of your bed, for keeping your favourite throws and extra bedding for any chilly nights. Crafted using 100% reclaimed wood, what I love about this piece is the smooth curved top with the natural markings, which give the piece a charming finish.


On cold mornings, there's nothing worse that putting your feet on a cold wooden floor when you get out of bed. The Luxury Sexto White Sheepskin Rug is perfect for placing beside your bed and sinking your toes into every morning. The winter white rug also looks beautiful in the centre of your living room, especially if you have a gorgeous fireplace to create a gorgeous rustic look, as if you were in a cosy winter log cabin. 

Throws are always a welcome addition to the end of your bed and draped over the end of your sofa during the cold winter months. The Nordic Fair Isle Throw is one of my favourites for a cosy, wintery look. The cream throw with red and grey detailing looks wonderful with any colour scheme and is perfect for wrapping up in on the sofa with a cup of coffee. 

Take a look at the Modish Living website for more details on some of these winter home essentials, or get in touch with our team for more information. 

Our in-house editor picks her top favourites for 2016

2017 is just around the corner! With the beginning of the New Year in mind, I have put together a collection of my favourite pieces this year which are perfect for sprucing up your home. 

The Anne Boleyn Grey TV Cabinet is one of the newest pieces to Modish Living but it has quickly stolen my heart. The irresistible TV cabinet has been beautifully handcrafted and hand finished for an enchanting, luxurious finish which would look wonderful in contemporary or classic design schemes. I especially love the distressed look of the soft grey paint for a charming, stylish finish which gives a nod to the colourful furniture trend which has been so popular this year.

Your bedroom should be a place to escape the fast paced world that surrounds us. The Dorset Purbeck Reclaimed Wood King Size Bed is perfect for creating a luxurious, fresh oasis in your bedroom that you'll love relaxing in. The large white bed has been hand painted and features a slightly curved headboard and footboard for a distinctive, glamorous finish. Pair with white or very soft grey bedding for a beautifully bright finish or add a soft colour for a gorgeous accent. Make sure to find plenty of cushions and throws for a plush finish.

The Louis De Poortere Mad Men Blue Avenue Rug is perfectly captures the essence of sixties design combining geometric design and bold colour. The rug has a vibrant mix of blues and greys in a 'Sky Scraper' design which would look absolutely stunning in a light, bright colour scheme to bring a pop of colour and create an ultra contemporary look. If you love the blue, but aren't sure about making such a statement, a notable mention also has to go to the Man Men Brooklyn Blue Rug - its flecks of bright blue are great for adding interest but the more muted base colour makes the rug easy to blend into any colour scheme.

If I had to pick just one, the Large Luxe Kensington Reclaimed Wood Dining Table would probably be my favourite product of 2016. I adore the unique sleeper wood table contrasted against the crossed design of the steel base which would look fantastic in so many homes paired with shiny, sophisticated accessories or pops of pink or red. For creating a sleek, luxurious finish, the table top can also be fitted with a glass topper making it easy to maintain which would look fabulous in any contemporary kitchen or dining room.

Editor's Pick of the Month: Sorio Reclaimed Wood Multi Chest of Drawers

With the start of December, and chilly days ahead of us, my pick this month is the Sorio Reclaimed Wood Multi Chest of Drawers in the hope that it will bring a bit of life to those colder days. The reason I love this chest of drawers so much is the mixture of colour, texture and pattern. Colour in furniture can often sound daunting, but it really is nothing to afraid of.

The Sorio Multi Chest of Drawers has been luxuriously handcrafted in India using 100% reclaimed timber and materials. The solid wood piece features 14 drawers in a variety of shapes and sizes and each has a unique drawer front and handle, perfect for making a statement. The chest of drawers would absolutely stunning in a living room, bedroom or hallway and will add plenty of storage too.

With a statement piece of furniture, I would suggest keeping it simple when it comes to styling. As a lover of light grey and bright white décor schemes, that is exactly what I would go for with this chest of drawers. However, the contemporary styling lends itself to a fun, pop of colour. Add a bright, upholstered club chair in yellow or blue, like the Riva Harvest Gold RetroSit Armchair, and a bunch of fresh flowers or an understated, large mirror for a fresh, statement look.
