Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all you Hermit followers!

Wishing you all a day filled with good food and wine, and good friends and family. Hope you all get spoilt with some great gifts today and hopefully Hermit has been a source of inspiration for some of the gifts you have purchased for loved ones too.

We will be taking a little break from blogging to enjoy the festivities and celebrate as we enter into 2013. Thanks for following Hermit Homewares and we hope you will join us again in the new year to get your daily design fix.

Cheers!

T’was the night before Christmas

Get ready, Santa is about to clock on for work and what a night shift he has ahead of him!

At least he does get a little spoilt with all those cookies and milk left out for him (cough…bribery…cough), and don’t forget the carrots for the reindeers!

And now it is time for us to relax and start enjoying ourselves too, but remember NO PEAKING!! Presents are for Christmas day only 😉

I’m dreaming of…

Sleigh beds! They are a stunning piece of statement furniture with mountains of character.

I have always loved the rolling curves of sleigh beds. They are quite commanding and do require a little more space because of their shape, but a sleigh bed is a timeless favourite that will look just as magical 20 years down the track as it does today.

Dashing right?!

Whether you need some last-minute gifts or just love to really present your present, then Washi tape should be your new BFF.

Washi tape is a japanese paper or wood pulp tape that is known for its durability, strength and diversity. Traditionally it is used throughout Japanese crafts but recently Washi has taken the world by storm with the introduction of many amazing colours, patterns and designs. With so many ways to use washi tape it is no wonder everyone has gone craft crazy.

Below are some brilliant ideas for presents and packaging, so get creative and see what you can come up with! Washi tape is available in Australia through Lark, The Minimalist or Etsy!

The Hermitage – Pine House Hotel, Poltava Oblast, Ukranie

Nothing says christmas like the smell of fresh pine trees, so for The Hermitage today we escape to a pine forest in Poltava Oblast in the Ukraine.

Nestled amongst the forest you will find the Pine House Hotel by Yod Design Lab, a stunning piece of architecture that uses and celebrates the materials it is surrounded by. This chalet style building contains two rooms with a common hallway and is a separate part of the hotel and entertainment complex.

Dear…

And for the man who has everything… Reindeer Leather Aprons by Boleby.

Truly a collector’s item, only 30 of these were made (and sold!) but you can still purchase the original Tanner’s Apron.

Bole is a very well-respected tannery in Sweden, a small family business that counts royalty as customers. They are 1 of just 4 companies in the world that use traditional methods of tanning with spruce bark, creating high-end products that last a lifetime, age gracefully and smell amazing.
