My New Christmas Home Decor Collection (and a Free Download for You!)

What's on your bucket list? Creating a physical product has long been on my list of Must Do's. I've created digital products and printables. I've selected fabrics to create a pillow collection. But designing my own product from scratch, getting it manufactured and selling it? That's something I've never done before.

HomeStory Goods

I knew I couldn't do it on my own though. While I have great ideas, a sharp eye for design, and the business background to get an online shop up and running, the ability to actually draw and illustrate for products is a skill I do not possess. Which is why I was thrilled that my friend Sarah from Pewter & Sage said 'Yes!' to working together to make our product(s) happen! And so, I'd like to introduce you to our new HomeStory Goods Shop.

Sarah is a long-time online friend and an incredible artist (you need to see her hand-painted signs!). We share a love of family, vintage style, and a fondness for simpler times. We believe in slow decorating, shun fast consumption, and are mindful of what we bring into and toss out of our homes. 

Our store tagline says it all: nostalgic goods for modern homes. A conscious blending of old & new.

We wanted to imbue those shared values into timeless products for the holiday season. We wanted to create items that you'll pull out again and again at Christmastime. Things that feel fresh yet familiar.

Let me introduce you to our first collection, Maison (and stick around because I have free giveaway for you!).

Maison Collection

Maison - Noun. The French word for house, home, dwelling.

"Homes" take on such a special meaning during the holidays and we wanted to devote this first collection to celebrating home as a gathering place. We took our inspiration from traditional English style. It's a more-is-more look defined by saturated colours, geometric and botanical patterns, and classic charm and comfort. 

Our Maison Christmas home decor collection comes alive with a bold hunter green and crimson red palette. It features cardinals and woodpeckers and the greenery of winter, including holly, poinsettias, and mistletoe.

We were inspired by the work of William Morris and you'll see the common theme of flora and fauna in the cardinal design by Sarah. That lush, all-over design can be found on our 20"x12" lumbar pillow, mug, and instant download print.

To keep the collection from feeling too vintagey, we've also brought in a modern block print design. The hand-drawn holly isn't block printed on the fabric, but you get the same effect with the geometric repeat pattern. Playing with scale on two of the pillows (the 22"x22" pillow has an oversized holly, the 18" pillow has a smaller pattern) feels fresh but allows the pillows to coordinate.

Two-Sided Pillows

In these turbulent times, we're all a bit more mindful of where we spend our money. Sarah and I wanted to maximize the value of our pillows. Pillows can be viewed as trendy and disposable but we wanted ours to be a small investment that you would love and cherish over the years. How to do that? By giving our pillows different designs on the back and front.

The pillows have been designed to work together for an easy, coordinated look. With three different pillows and two different designs each, you can create many different styles for your pillowscape. We've paired the more traditional blockprint and cardinal designs with a graphic grid, classic gingham, and timeless ticking stripes. 

You can go vintage and traditional, or swing more country casual. It's up to you.

Christmas Mugs

There's no better way to enjoy the holidays than with a mug with a hot drink to keep your hands and belly warm. The 15oz holly mug is the perfect size for hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and sprinkles.

The 11oz cardinal mug is the one you'll love to see on your desk, throughout the winter. It's festive without being too Christmassy. I think it makes a lovely gift for the teacher, a co-worker, or your favourite aunt.

Christmas Print

Last in the collection is our downloadable print. You can bring an instant feeling of Christmas to your home by displaying this on your walls. Your purchase comes with four different sizes that you can use as art, or print the small size on cardstock to use as a Christmas card.
