Preparing for advent is on the horizon for Esther N McCarthy this week...
Irish-Designist.ie has this juicy piece in its gift collection at the moment. The Citrus Clock, from another Irish company Blue Bridge Design, was inspired by looking at cross sections of different items, from fruit and vegetables to large-scale architectural buildings.
It’s €45 and like all pieces in the collection can be purchased online at shop.designist.ie and will be delivered within 48 hours or you can collect in store and avail of a free gift-wrapping service.
I’m loving this pairing of pretty pink with on-trend metallic. A bunch of grapes is optional. The Shout chaise is €805 and available from DFS. Order in-store or online at www.dfs.ie
Imagine the craic you’d have with these cool light boxes. You can create messages that matter (or make you laugh), with a personalised light box from www.sgtsmith.com
Available in a range of sizes and designs, from €50 — but don’t forget delivery for a different present.
There’s no escaping it— the countdown to Christmas is on. I can’t think of a more beautiful way to start it all than making your own advent calendar complete with a very cute advent suitcase from Griffin’s of Dripsey, €24.95.
Want a fast revamp? A fabulous wallpaper will do the trick every time. l’m a fan of this Farrow & Ball print called Arcade, and it’s shown here complemented with Wimborne White on the table.

Don’t be falling asleep on cotton, like a commoner. It’s time to treat yourself to a 100% mulberry silk pillowcase. There’s lots of benefits to skin and hair , but fear not, no silkworms are harmed or killed in the production process. All the Ethical Silk Company’s products are made with Ahimsa peace silk. A silky-smooth sleep is €45 away.
