New Festive Collections from Dunelm

It might seem a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but at this time of the year, most supermarkets and High Street shops start unveiling their new collections for autumn/winter and Christmas.

I recently attended Dunelm’s ‘Christmas in July’ press event in London where I learnt about the new collections for Christmas 2017. There are five in total – Noel, Festive Charm, Enchanted Lodge, Winter Warm and Toy Chest.
Let’s take a closer look.


This is a more understated theme that mixes natural materials (pine cones, feathers, twigs etc) with glass baubles that offer a vintage feel.

This is probably my favourite theme from Dunelm's Christmas collection as it mimics a lot of the décor that I favour in my own home.

I particularly like the feather heart wreaths and the idea of ‘bringing the outside in’ with natural materials that make for unique decoration displays during the festive season.

Three words that spring to mind with the Noel collection: Country – Relaxed – Natural.

Example prices range from a Glitter Star Tree Topper for £3, a Feather Heart Wreath for £14 and a Standing Wooden Deer for £25.

Festive Charm

As you’d expect from the name, there’s something quite charming about Festive Charm!

The look is inspired by iconic art deco style which offers rich shades of teal and peacock blue as a stunning backdrop to sparkling stars, sequin baubles and gold highlights.

Three words that spring to mind with the Festive Charm collection: Glamour – Sophistication – Sparkly.

Example prices range from Church Candles for 50p, an Ornament Box for £10 and a Pack of 100 Baubles for £20.

Enchanted Lodge

I love the name of this Dunelm collection as it reminds me of childhood – possibly because I used to read The Enchanted Wood (The Magic Faraway Tree) by Enid Blyton. I would get lost in those books for hours.

And the name fits well: Think a country lodge in the middle of some woods and you can imagine the set-up: berry reds, rust and chestnut create a cosy, intimate feel, coupled with tartan highlights and nostalgic decorations.

Three words that spring to mind with the Enchanted Lodge collection: Traditional – Warm – Rustic.

Example prices range from Wooden Stag Head String Lights for £5, a Jute Hanging Heart for £12 and a large Rocking Horse decoration for £20.

Winter Warm

Remember when it gets freezing cold in winter and you can think of nothing better than snuggling in front of the telly in your PJS with a cosy cover, hot water bottle and a mug of hot chocolate? Dunelm's Winter Warm reminds me of that.

The collection features chunky knits and shaggy sheepskin rugs teamed with luxury throws and cushions.

Three words that spring to mind with Winter Warm: Snug – Cosy – Cuddly.

Example prices range from a Faux Fur Cushion in Natural for £10 to a Chunky Pom Pom Throw Grey for £50.

Toy Chest

As soon as I saw this theme, one word sprung to mind: FUN!

It’s a cheery, bright look that kids will love, and with my daughter being a bit of a tomboy, I’m pleased to see that it’s not too feminine.

This Dunelm launch features exclusive characters you might expect to find in a children’s toy box, with bold colours that will delight both kids and adults.

Three words that spring to mind with Toy Chest: Fun (naturally!) – Adventure – Cute.

Example prices range from Peppermint Candy Canes (pack of 12) for £1, a set of 4 Felt Snowflake Placemats for £5 and a Skating Flamingo Quilt Set (single) for £16.99.

Dunelm Christmas Gifting

Dunelm also has a super selection of gifts for every budget.

A few examples include a Gumball Bank for £15, a Rocking Pink Unicorn for £30, a Giant Keyboard for £25, a mini Pool Table for £12, a Tealight Advent Calendar for £8, a Love Afternoon Tea Set for £10, a Scott & Lawson Shoe Cleaning Set for £8 and a Globe (25cm) for £40, to name just a few.

I personally can't wait for the new collections to hit the store so I can explore them in more detail – some of the Christmas themed accessories and decorations are so unique.

In the meantime, I'll settle for making the most of the current sale that Dunelm has by hitting the shops with the girls 

What's your favourite look for this year?

It seems a bit early for me to think of winter festivals, but I guess the earlier you prepare, the better ;))

LaurettaCWright 25th July 2017 - 5:21 pm

I know what you mean but yes – I do feel smug when I’m super organised ?

LaurettaCWright 18th July 2017 - 11:14 pm

Ah me too – although I’m a summer girl at heart though, so could do with a few more weeks of glorious sunshine at least! 🙂

LaurettaCWright 21st July 2017 - 10:01 am

Some stunning collections here, I think my favourite is Winter Warm, it’s cosy and just seems homely.

Thanks Nicole – roll on the festivities (but not before a hot summer!)

Joanna 18th July 2017 - 12:42 pm

I like the Noel collection, it reminds me of the simply, Scandinavian designs which I love. I like how the collection has been inspired by nature, with the pine cones and the earthy colors.

LaurettaCWright 18th July 2017 - 12:47 pm

Yes – I think this was my fave too Joanna – I’m all over the Scandi look – simple, clean lines, nothing too fussy…

Jenni 18th July 2017 - 10:29 am

I’ve never shopped at dunelm at Christmas time. It looks like they do some really nice stuff 🙂

LaurettaCWright 18th July 2017 - 12:46 pm

If you can’t get to a store Jenni – you can always ‘browse the aisles’ online

Mel 18th July 2017 - 10:21 am

I love Dunelm and their festive collection looks amazing – will have to pop in nearer Christmas time I think

LaurettaCWright 18th July 2017 - 12:45 pm

I do a Xmas shop and then one straight after Xmas to pick up all the bargains!

Stephanie Usher 18th July 2017 - 9:19 am

They’re all lovely aren’t they?

Caroline 17th July 2017 - 8:12 pm

It looks like a fantastic show! I think enchanted lodge is my favourite, I really love the dark blue and gold combination.

LaurettaCWright 17th July 2017 - 8:49 pm

Ah I think that one is called Festive Charm – it’s a very sophisticated look isn’t it? Mind you, it would definitely suit your personality you sassy lady!

Shannon Bryson 17th July 2017 - 6:25 pm

Although I internally groaned when I saw this was a Christmas post, you’re absolutely right. NOW is the time to grab your decor and presents so you can save time, money and stress!

LaurettaCWright 17th July 2017 - 8:59 pm

I start on the present buying in January meaning that I save ££££ come the festive season. It’s just space that’s an issue! Thanks Shannon!

Vesna 17th July 2017 - 10:25 am

Thank you for sharing this! Great idea! We were making lists on who’s gonna come to us this Christmas! Time to stay at home this year! Traveling a lot for a couple of years!

LaurettaCWright 17th July 2017 - 8:46 pm

It will be nice to hang up your hat for a bit and make your house a home!

LaurettaCWright 16th July 2017 - 8:49 pm

Yes, you have a great excuse to get a new theme going on this Christmas! Some of them are gorgeous too!

Cal at Family Makes 16th July 2017 - 5:45 pm

Oh dear, is it really time to start mentioning the ‘C’ word??! I don’t mind actually, I’m excited for Christmas in our new house this year, even if I did throw away most of our decorations before we moved. great excuse to start again! I’m loving the Noel collection, or maybe Winter Warm. Can’t wait to see them in store!
