As I’m sat writing this, the rain is hitting the windows and the wind is causing chaos; and so it seems appropriate that this post is all about creating a cosy retreat you’ll be more than happy to hibernate in for the darker months.
Here are my high street picks, a few I already have in my home and the rest are definitely on my wish list!
Layer lots of textured cushions in neutral colours exudes comfort.
1. Matalan, 2. Zara, 3. The White Company, 4. Zara
Keep knitted or faux fur throw blankets at hand to snuggle up with. TKMaxx have been stocking some amazing buys at low prices lately, so it’s worth trying your luck there. Other options –
5. Sainsbury’s, 6. Matalan
There’s nothing more cosy than candlelight. Try a modern candelabra, just add some white taper candles. I can even imagine adding a white Christmas floral arrangement to the base for a classy table centrepiece come December.
Or look out for scented candles in eye catching holders.
Add a little luxury with glamorous table lamps for low lit evenings. I have this one in my home and love how the base sparkles, it gets lots of compliments!
Have that hot chocolate in style with a personal monogram mug.
Keep your pampering essentials together and bathroom surfaces clutter free with spa-like storage; or this knitted basket could even be used to hide away remote controls until film night.
Something with a dual purpose…
Have you ever thought of using an oversized scarf as a throw? Check or herringbone patterns are ideal for winter months and often they are cheaper to purchase and more or less the same size!
