With Mother's Day just around the corner, it can be very easy to leave the present decision down to the very last minute and traipse to the local shop for the standard chocolates, flowers and card but I believe that Mum's are worth so much more than that. They deserve that extra special touch, a gift that has had thought put into the buying process and a gift which they can treasure for years to come. So with this in mind, I want to introduce you to a few of my hand-picked items from of The House of Cream
which can be found with other specially selected products in my Mother's Day Range
One of the decor trends for 2017 is quirky lighting and this also includes items for your garden. These stunning latticework Iron Lanterns are the perfect accessory for both inside and outside the home. They will create a beautiful focal point around the patio area and will really set the mood throughout those gorgeous summer evenings. During the winter months, you could bring them indoors and place them around your fireplace to add to that cosy effect. A versatile gift that is available in 3 sizes (small 18cm h, medium 22cm h, large 27cm h) and in an on trend vintage ivory shade.
What is more perfect than saying 'Happy Mother's Day' with Mother of Pearl? Well, you can do precisely that with this timeless Photo Frame. The frame has a Mother of Pearl edging and finished with pearls and diamantes. This item will bring class and elegance to her home and will fit in with any style as this look never goes out of fashion. Finish it off with a personal touch and choose a picture that captures your wonderful Mum.
Muted colours are going to be big in Spring 2017 and, to be honest, I think they always will be as a calming shade will never not work throughout a home. I personally love the mix of strong, bold colours with creams and as feature walls have been a very popular choice for the last few years, popping a subtle piece in front of it can bring the look together; these Mosaic Tealight Holders are perfect for the job. At just 7.1 cm h x 9.9 diameter they would sit nicely as a pair at the opposite end of a mantle piece and look stunning when a lit candle shines through the mosaic glass.
One of the biggest trends during 2016 was to include woven fabrics within the home. This look is set to continue into this year and, if you pick the right product and style, it is bound to become a household staple. At The House of Cream, we have plenty of choices but one of my personal favourites is this Rich Tapestry Throw. With its terracotta patterns and ivory background, which almost shimmers in the light, it will enrich any sofa, chair or bed.
The vintage styling is here to stay and clocks are a popular way of introducing this look into the home. I have the cutest little Table Clock which would make a lovely Mother's Day gift. Available in vintage cream and with traditional roman numerals on the face I am sure any Mum would love to receive this as their special present this year.
And finally, if you are looking for a statement piece that will wow your Mum as well as any guest who walks through her door, I can recommend this stunning Giant Ivory Flower Pot to complete the entrance hall. With a distressed edge but a glazed finish, it cleverly mixes vintage with contemporary to produce this classy look. It stands at 58 cm tall and will look fantastic with tall artificial flowers/plants.
