Counting down the days until Christmas is a lovely tradition enjoyed by homes in all sorts of places. The invitation to see exactly how long the wait is – plus the possibility of gifts and treats – is a valuable part of the run up to the holidays.
Here at Homecolours we love how some of our favourite design-led brands have managed to re-think the tradition in colourful and creative ways.
Take the elegant candle offering the 2021 Christmas Advent Candle from Georg Jensen. The finely made candle includes a numbered countdown of the December days prior to Christmas.
Perfect for positioning on a tabletop or mantelpiece, the advent candle is sure to brighten up the days before the holidays. The designer pieces are ideal for a sophisticated and artistic way to mark the countdown.
Available in a gold or silver finish, the candle also includes a constellation of stars. Offering a wonderful flow of illumination, the days left to go until the main event will be clear for everyone to see.
Decorative style and Scandinavian inspired detailing are all part of the picture in the gorgeously produced Circus Christmas Advent Calendar by OYOY. The entire household are sure to delight in this lovely home offering.
The wall calendar is brilliantly made with organic cotton and includes a festive theme in two colours. The circus big top design brings out all the fun of the holiday period, with a lively feel perfect for living areas. Gifts and little pressies can be contained within the 24 available pockets.
Fantastic for making the run-up to the holidays extra special, this advent calendar is a wonderful way to get the celebration started.
A different advent approach is offered with the expertly produced Ferm Living Cinnamon Scented Soy Christmas Advent Candle.
Available in a range of colours, the sweet-smelling candle offers a lovely way to record the passing of the days leading up to Christmas. Not only do the candles provide a rich aroma to fill the home with as they burn, but they also showcase the 24 days of advent in a clear and easy to see chart.
The candles offer a soft light for a romantic seasonal feel, while also providing up to 50 hours of burn time. Delightful for a pre-Christmas treat that the entire household can enjoy, the candles will also be much appreciated by any visitors to the home.
