Unexpected Moments of Joy

At The Wedding Present Company we believe that you can (with the right presents) enjoy every corner of your home. While we know that we spend the vast majority of our time either cooking up a storm in the kitchen, snoozing in our bedrooms or gathered round the dining table, there are so many other spaces where you can find unexpected moments of joy- I’m looking at you, under stairs cupboard!

Here at The Wedding Present Company, we think that even the most seemingly mundane of spaces can be made beautiful with a few carefully chosen presents. Read on to see our top tips to transforming these forgotten spaces in your home into beautiful and useable spaces.

The Hall

The White Company

Often overlooked and cluttered, your hall is the first thing you and your guests see when entering your home, so it should be a welcoming space. It's the place you greet your nearest and dearest, so, create the best first impression and make it cosy but also practical, with rugs, coat hooks and a well placed console table. If your hallway is on the snug side, add a convex mirror to open up the space, we love this one from Luna Home.

The Utility Room

One of the more practical spaces within our homes, the utility room only needs a few choice pieces to make it feel loved. Think practical but beautiful presents that you’ll not only enjoy using, but will also make your life easier. Don’t forget decorative pieces too, we love this canopy self watering planter from LSA, perfect for the windowsill.
