Tis the season for giving gifts, but let’s face it: Some people are hard to shop for. Having trouble picking out the perfect gift for the aspiring interior designer in your life? No worries – we got you. From sophisticated window treatments to savvy storage solutions and more, here are six home décor essentials any budding designer would be thrilled to have.
1. Barn & Willow Window Treatments
Ask any seasoned interior designer and they’ll tell you the same: Quality window treatments are essential to any well-designed space. Treat your favorite DIY designer with a set of custom Barn & Willow window treatments to suit their style—such as sheer drapes for boho lovers and flat roman shades for minimalists—so they can elevate their space in no time.
2. A Houseplant in a Stylish Holder
Beloved by interior designers and design enthusiasts alike, houseplants are an easy way to energize a space without breaking your budget. Gift the blossoming designer in your life with a gorgeous plant in a chic holder, like a heartleaf plant in a midcentury-style standing planter or a succulent in a colorful ceramic pot, and we guarantee they’ll be grateful.
3. Sleek Décor Accents with Storage
No design-savvy space would be complete without a few sleek and clever storage solutions. Surprise the aspiring designer in your life with chic but unexpectedly storage-friendly décor items—think wall-mounted mirrors with hanging hooks or a cool set of acrylic desk organizers—so they can streamline their space in style.
4. Interesting Textiles
You can always count on interesting textiles to dress up a humdrum space in no time. That’s why gifting a DIY designer with a super shaggy faux rug or a plush and colorful throw blanket is surefire way to bring a smile to their face this holiday season and beyond.
5. Cool Lighting
Never underestimate the impact of an eye-catching light fixture in a room. Whether with an origami-inspired pendant lantern or a sputnik-style chandelier, a commanding light fixture will instantly elevate any up-and-coming designer’s home and holiday.
6. Barn & Willow Gift Card
When in doubt, gift the budding interior designer in your life with a Barn & Willow gift card so that they can custom design their own window treatment setup at home.
