As winter kicks in we find ourselves longing for more occasions to lounge about at home, but life always seems to gets in the way. Setting aside time to unwind is critical for your wellbeing, especially in the lead up to the busy holiday period. Use the change in seasons as an opportunity to take stock of your surroundings, and add a few key comforting pieces to your home for a cosy touch on those well-deserved rest days.
STAGE A BED-IN
For many of us our bed is the epitome of cosiness. Spending a day tucked up with breakfast and the weekend papers is a classic yet oft overlooked way to feel rested and ready to take on the week ahead.
IT’S THE SIMPLE THINGS
Soft, woolly fibres – we can’t get enough. A pair of fleecy socks makes all the difference on a cold day, whether you are in bed or padding around the house. If you can’t make time for full day of relaxation, take small steps to conjure up a cosy feeling with warm socks, a comforting throw or blanket, a hot water bottle or pot of tea.
MAKE YOUR HOME YOUR OWN
Your home should feel lived in and authentic, containing objects that reflect who you are and what you love. Combining treasured keepsakes with soft, natural furnishings will create a space that comforts you and showcases your style.
