    As we work our way through November, I love seeing the men around town sporting all sorts of weird and wonderful moustaches as part of Movember, which takes place throughout the month to raise awareness for men’s health. But, it seems it’s not only the men of the world showing off their taches, here at Style at Home we’ve seen lots of fab moustache themed homeware lately, from mugs to plates, doormats to clocks. But of course, we’ve found a few cushions…

    Movember

    If you’re a lover of the moustache, then you’re going to like this quirky Moustache cushion, £30, Urban Outfitters. So, why not pop it on your sofa today?

    We’ve been loving the craze – on cushions and pretty much everything else – for typography and witty messages, especially in a foreign language. But having seen rather a lot of French script recently, we were thrilled when these cushions landed in the Style at Home inbox.

    Printed with intriguing German calligraphy, these tactile canvas and grain-sack style beauties bring an edgy rustic feel with a hint of uber-cool industrial vibe. Think urban loft-living or Bavarian country house. Plus they’re filled with duck feathers – wunderbare!

    German No 34 Sack cushion (on chair), £35; Audrena cushion, £25; both Uniche

    Knit one, purl one…

    Have you ever seen anything quite as cute as these lovely cushions? The Style at Home team cooed for a while over these gorgeous knit-your-own designs from Herdy, so we though we’d share the love. And with Christmas just around the corner, we think they’d make a fab gift for a keen crafter. Each kit contains three balls of wool and full instructions. The finished cushion cover measures around 30cm x 30cm and there are six colours to choose from.

    Or, if you buy the kit for yourself (and why not? You deserve a treat!), we’d love to see your finished cushion – just send us a pic on Facebook. Happy knitting!
