Thoughtful design is very much a thread which runs through everything we do here at Caramel. And, just as we value clothes which are made with passion, energy (and a healthy dose of debate over the drawing board!), we also care deeply about the objects which we surround ourselves with in our home.
Creating a home which nurtures us as well as looking characterful is paramount. We ask so many different things from our space: a place to inspire, to relax, reinvigorate, switch off but most of all bring joy…a message which is captured on our Christmas cards.

We have enjoyed putting together an edit which celebrates craftsmanship and heritage values: be that the perfect hint of pinky coral on the rim of talented ceramicist, Noa Weintraub’s floral plates or the fragility of the brush strokes visible on Gunji ceramics. These are items that you will want to pass down or on.
You might even find a paintbrush, buy a brush pot and try your hand at creating your own bespoke stationery for gifts which keep on giving long after the last present is unwrapped.

L.A Bruket candles are guaranteed to envelop you in a heady cocoon of black oak or its take on ‘tabac’ whilst neon pink or yellow dinner candles add sock it-to-you verve and will never fail to put a smile on any festive tablescape, but don’t just take our word for it.
As to the most stylish (and comfortable) items to snuggle up in? Look no further than our paisley piped pyjamas which celebrate the many in house prints that we produce each year. Team with tonally mismatched ditsy print quilts or a jolt of Olympic blue in silk throws which do as well on your bed as they do on the sofa.
Now wait for someone to bring the mulled wine and a slice of the zestiest panettone.
