Getting Cosy

If there’s one thing you want during the winter, it’s staying warm. The easiest way to do that on those cold winter days—aside from cranking up the heat—is to get some nice blankets. The Brilliant blanket from Loaf is a great choice because it’s both lightweight and large enough to cover any bed.

However, if you need something a bit warmer, the perfect solution is a sinfully soft, but sinless, faux fur throw from Feather & Black.

If you prefer your winter blankets with a bit of Christmas flare, John Lewis has some beautiful throw blankets, including this red woodland throw.

There’s no better complement to blankets than some beautiful cushions. If you prefer a small square cushion, these faux fur cushions from Feather & Black are great—plus they’ll match their throw.

If you prefer something a bit more traditional and homely, try this stunning grey cable knit cashmere mix cushion.

Or pair this red knitted reindeer cushion from John Lewis with the red woodland throw from the same brand to create a cohesive combo that serves as a perfect reminder that Christmas is right around the corner.

Warming the Winter Glow

A cosy winter wouldn’t be so cosy without candles. The smell, the warm feeling… you can never go wrong with candles. This cream vanilla scented candle will fill your home with scents reminiscent of warm baked goods.

For those of you who can’t get enough Christmas spirit—not that we blame you—check out some of the scented glass candles available at Maisons du Monde.

They even have a candle with a vivid winter scene inside featuring an adorable little mouse.

If you prefer your candles with no scent, you still have plenty of options. This white curved candle has a unique look that will provide gentle, warm light in your living room for hours on end.

You can even toss some tea lights in a decorative holder, like this copper lotus tea light holder from John Lewis.
