One of the reasons I love fall is the idea of curling up under a warm blanket by the fire. I’m one of the few people in the world who sees grey skies and smiles thinking about the warm sweaters I can wear, or the cozy blanket I can crawl under, or the steaming mug of cider I can hold in my hand. There are no two ways about it – I’m a fall person. It’s likely this very sentiment that caused me to stop what I was doing when an e-mail from Mint Velvet came into my inbox with some of the most cozy looking things I had ever seen. It’s the new Mint Velvet Hygge collection. I’ll let them describe it to you as they talk about how the word combines two of my favourite things: cozy fall and winter evenings and enjoying the good things in life, which is what the Refined Side is all about.
Faced with months of dark and cold weather, [the Danees] retreat indoors to create sanctuaries of warmth and cosiness. Bars and cafes are adorned with candles and plush cushions, and blankets are standard issue for late night drinks: think log cabins, roaring fires, curling up on the sofa with a blanket, and indulging in hot chocolate – enjoying all the good things in life with good people around you.
The collection which accompanies this philosophy is nothing short of making me want to pack up my city life and run away to a cabin in the woods. (A cabin with wi-fi and five-star luxuries, but a cabin nonetheless) It’s all in a soft, muted dove grey colour and some of my favourite pieces feature fur – including the FUR LINED SOCKS. Hint, hint, this is going to be on my Christmas list!
The first bits from the collection drop into the MV stores store the first week of October, and everything will be available to purchase by the 10th October through the Mint Velvet website:
