Here at jmm PR, we have been scouring the internet for our favourite articles of the week.
This week brings velvet styling tips and reusable advent calendars to help us have a more sustainable Christmas.
This season, velvet has been right on trend and this article shows you five ways to bring the luxurious fabric into your home! From pink velvet sofas to velvet lampshades, there is something for everyone to try, especially if you’re looking to add some glamorous touches to a room.
One of our favourite style tips is the ‘choose a pattern’. Besides there being a leopard print velvet chair (we’re leopard print mad here at jmm PR!), we love the idea of mixing the velvet texture with bold patterns to create a statement look. If you’re looking for something more subtle, you could always reverse the roles by pairing a velvet chair with patterned cushions!

While the festive season is undeniably our favourite time of year, throwing away used wrapping paper, greetings cards, plastic packaging and leftover food can often leave us on the lookout for tips on how to make Christmas that little bit more sustainable. Reusable advent calendars are a great way to reduce the amount of waste that we generate, and this article offers up six of the best ideas to inject a more personalised touch into this year’s festive season.
As well as featuring a selection of wooden advent calendars that allow you to fill 24 individual drawers with treats, this article provides some great DIY tips, including mini hessian stockings that can be hung on walls or over a fireplace, acting as a stunning decorative accessory. We especially love the simple yet stylish peg advent calendar from Poundland. So, if you’re bored of traditional chocolate advent calendars and want to add a personalised touch, or if, like us, you’re looking for ways to have a more sustainable Christmas, make sure you check out this article for some ideas that will help you enjoy a more environmentally-friendly countdown to the big day.
