As temperatures drop, it’s no surprise we’re turning our attention inside with keeping warm. With shorter days and chilly mornings, getting out of bed is less appealing, while heading out is playing second fiddle to curling up on the couch with the latest Netflix series.
If you’re feeling similarly to us, you’ll be wanting to surround yourself with warming textures and comfortable lifestyle pieces. Here’s our favourite pieces to help justify staying in and keeping cosy.
A Plush Bedhead
When it’s too cold to brave getting out of bed, why not stay in? With its cocooning shell form, high headboard and bold colours, the plush Desdemone Bed by Ligne Roset for Domo is perfectly suited for lounging in bed longer.
While cotton is a great fabric for all seasons, its great for adding warming layers in the cooler months. We suggest a piece like the Ravello Blanket from Abode – the open weave ripple texture adds a subtle material detail while the high quality combed cotton is perfect for adding extra warmth to bedding.
Cashmere Bed Socks
No need to scoff bed socks as something for the elderly – these may be your secret winter weapon. In decadently soft cashmere, this pair from Abode demand to be purchased in all colours, ready for those lazy midwinter days when staying in is the only option.
A Go-To Sofa
We’ve made no secret of our love for the Edra Standard Sofa but it’s even more alluring as a refuge from the chill outside – can’t you just imagine spending hours curled up in the sofa’s plush, ergonomic embrace?
It’s a signature material in Scandinavian style for a reason – felt is a great natural warmer. While heavier felt elements can be overwhelming we like to bring it in through smaller details like these cushions from Nordicspace.
Beni Ouarain Rug
Traditionally used as bedding to keep warm during winters in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco, these handmade natural-wool carpets are sure to keep you toasty underfoot while adding a subtle geometric style perfect in any room of the house.
Is there anything better than sinking into super-cosy brushed flannel sheets at the end of a long, cold day? Designed with a tighter weave and brushed on both sides, the Aspen range from Abode stands out from the pack for its instant warm-to-touch feel.
Part of the Rebari Home Collection at Spence & Lyda, the Injiri Quilt is produced with organic cotton grown and mill-spun in Gujarat using a traditional weaving technique. As well as adding warmth to bedroom or living space it’s an unique piece that adds a rustic element to more modern spaces.
By Candle Flame
Should all else fail, warming your hands by a tiny fire at a candle should work a treat. We kid, of course, but a charming scent is sure to help turn any space into a winter retreat. We love the Darsana scent by Lumira, available at est essentials.
