HLN x Marehalm – Lust List Takeover

Since they set up shop back in 2014, Marehalm has been the destination for Scandinavian style homeware, gifts and hand-crafted jewellery here in the North East. 

With founders Angela and Heidi originally from Denmark, there are few more suited to the task of bringing that reputation for stripped-back style and elegance that Scandinavians are known the world over for. And while the pair always say they’re flattered to be associated with that reputation, they also strive to do their upmost to live up to those (very high) standards – sourcing their products from across Scandinavia as well as the UK, from established companies and independent designers alike. 

Take their sterling silver jewellery collection, for example, which – as well as their bespoke, one-off pieces – is exclusive to Marehalm and is entirely handmade by local jewellery designer Charles Robertson, who lives and works along the beautiful Northumberland coastline. 

The inspiration behind all the beautiful products you can find at Marehalm has been drawn from the shores of the pair’s homeland – quite literally, in fact, as ‘Marehalm’ is the Danish for ‘lyme grass’, found in the windswept dunes of the west coast of Denmark. And Northumberland, coincidentally, where the business began. Lyme grass is natural, resilient and blends peacefully into its surroundings – much like the products in Marehalm, which Heidi and Angela always ensure are in keeping with British lifestyle and trends as much as those back in Denmark.

‘There’s no monopoly on taste, but everyone knows what feels right,’ says Angela.  ‘Our unique approach lies in helping to inspire, to guide and to offer ways in which furnishings, homeware apparel and jewellery match and complement each other.

‘Using just the right textures, materials and colours, we help to bring an atmosphere that is tailored but relaxing; casual but inspiring.’

And that’s just the way the team at Marehalm do things. When you visit their exclusively online shop, you’ll find a virtual space where Scandinavian ‘hygge’ is transformed into homely bliss; where all the separate parts of your home come together, and it all just feels right. 

Shop online at Marehalm and benefit from a free gift wrapping service and 10% off all purchases until 30th November with code HLN10.
