Allude advent calendar: gift ideas for the home

T he good resolutions feel like it's pretty much 1953, but they still don't go out of style. After all, after each year there are still enough "construction sites" in life that everyone would like to finally tackle or complete. Jogging in the morning, the tax return before the reminder fees and comprehensive cosmetic surgery for your own four or more walls. But instead of fleeing into wild activism and torn drywall, sometimes – as the decoration gurus from TV show us again and again – a little interior cosmetics is enough. Here are our six gift ideas that are clearly more attractive than a full refurbishment:

Allude cushions

Allude cushions
To be honest: decorative cushions are only there to make the sofa look less bare. Very few are really cuddly. The embroidery often scratches the skin, the velvet pillow is unique, of which there are only 50 pieces worldwide - and the silk model refuses any physical contact due to hypersensitivity. Allude cushions made of fine cashmere and very fine new wool are significantly more robust, cuddly and très élégant, which not only look elegant but are also quite robust.

Decorative bowl by Tom Dixon
Actually, Tom Dixon wanted to be a rock star, but his stage career didn't work out. Luckily, because instead of touring around the world, the British designer welded scrap metal together into decorative objects in a friend's garage. And so successfully that he was able to work for famous houses such as Cappellini and Moroso without studying at a renowned academy. In 2002, the autodidact founded his own studio and since then has made sure that strokes of genius like the golden "Bone Bowl" end up on the wish list.

Room fragrance "Joséphine" by Circe Trudon

Room fragrance "Joséphine" by Circe Trudon
Joséphine de Beauhernais didn't spend most of Napoleon Bonaparte's fortune on huge jewels or elaborately embroidered dresses. In 1799, while her husband was still stationed in distant Egypt, the Empress preferred to buy a castle. Due to her inexhaustible devotion to flowers and plants, the garden of the Château de Malmaison was soon known as one of the most magnificent gardens in Europe. A passion that is also found in the "Joséphine" room spray from the traditional brand Cire Trudon (founded in 1643). Turkish rose, white musk and kaffir lime whisk you away to a jardin à la française .

Cashmere blanket from Allude

Cashmere blanket from Allude
Even if coats and jackets in duvet cover style are very popular right now: we prefer to leave the pillow and duvet in the bedroom and – as soon as the front door shuts out the frost – simply wrap ourselves in this cozy cashmere duvet from Allude. An internationally popular bestseller with countless uses! So nobody gets the idea that we tumbled out of bed hungover thanks to the pajama look ...

Marble clock by Bolia

Vase by Pols Potten
The Netherlands is not only known for cheese, bicycles and colorful tulips, which we like to buy in bunches. The humorous design by Pols Potten also has its home here. What started as a small shop in Amsterdam soon developed into a sought-after label for unusual stools, plates and decorative objects. Understandable! And in this handmade vase called "Pill" tulips and other flowers are presented in an unrivaled way.

Marble clock by Bolia

Marble clock by Bolia
Hardly any other material is celebrated more euphorically in creative studios than marble. Whether in white, black or green. The noble stone also embellishes those corners of the room that we had long since checked off as a special case. If you don't want to settle for a massive table from Carrara right away, you can at least add small marble accents. A successful entry-level model: this wall clock in a marble mix with a gold dial, which also picks up on the 70s trend.
