It's Wedding Season!

Ok, ok, I admit, this picture is somewhat self indulgent and a bit weird haha, but with all the Royal Wedding hoopla from a few weeks ago, I couldn't resist digging out a few of my old wedding accessories and style them up alongside my Granville blanket. Ahhh, June. The month of brides, love and marriage.  A summer of weddings, invitations, parties and gifts.  Oh yes, a summer dominated by one gift giving occasion after the next.  I got to thinking, "what kind of wedding gift would the modern couple that has everything love to receive?  What would you give Meghan or Harry say?" 

Like so many couples these days, the couple no doubt cohabit prior to walking down the aisle, therefore they've likely collected a few good years worth of home appliances, gadgets and decor items.  Aside from giving a cash handout (or a donation to charity as M & H requested) it can be difficult to buy for that couple that have simply acquired all the homeware once given as wedding presents.

I had a cheeky look back at Meghan's interior style as showcased in Australian Vogue and Hello Magazine late 2017 and noticed her love of textiles, layering and texture.  Quite simply her aesthetic is screaming out for a chunky knit blanket. Soft neutral colours such as Glacier, Bisque, Sandstone, Cotton Candy, Opal or Pewter would look amazing against her interior scheme.

Soft, feminine and timeless this colour palette doesn't steal the show from the colour pop of her loved peonies but would simply add another dimension to her effortlessly chic staging.

Quite simply, for the couple that has everything, a chunky knit blanket or cushion would be the perfect choice for those snuggly newlywed moments.  Beautifully packaged, handcrafted, artisan luxury will without doubt make the most memorable of gifts.   The Chunky Needle always uses 100% responsibly sourced, merino wool.  If looked after properly, these items will last a lifetime.
