Homewares to make your space cosier this winter

It's winter in Australia, which means most of us are living in houses/apartments that are completely unequipped for cold weather. While we grapple with this, there is no reason why making our spaces feel warmer in the cold months shouldn't happen. Personally I feel like I live in an especially cold apartment (as does everyone living in Sydney right now) which means I'm taking extra measures this year to ensure my igloo is equipped sufficiently with things that at least make it seem less icy.

 

Cliq Mohair Throw

In the bluest of blues. This chunky mohair throw isn't just easy on the eyes. Available in three different sizes: single, queen and king for maximum coverage, this blanket is woven from 100% mohair to keep you well insulated while you curl up on the couch or bed. It's so warm it feels like you are napping on a literal goat.

 

In Bed Flannel Sheets

Switch out cooling linen for cotton flannel this winter and never want to leave bed again. 100% brushed cotton will leave you feeling cosy as ever, and ensure that once you jump between the sheets, you'll spend half the time warming up your surroundings.

 

Greenfibres Woollen Hot Water Bottle Cover

Hot water bottle covers and heat packs can often feel a bit daggy albeit comforting. Match your HWB to your surroundings with this chic woollen cover with contrasting stitching on the seams. This, tucked between your flannel sheets will be a match made in heaven.

 

Tigmi Trading Oushak Rug

cozy-homewaresAdding a rug into your space can do wonders for creating warmth and protecting your feet from unwelcoming floorboards. We love this blue and white hand knotted one from Tigmi Trading to pair perfectly with the aforementioned mohair throw, but in the interest of saving our pennies, would happily opt for a Temple and Webster option instead.

 

Maison Balzac Bonne Nuit Candle

cozy-homewaresPersonally, there isn't a lot in life that is more comforting than the scent of lavender essential oil. Maison Balzac have distilled this experience into a candle for a cosy and relaxing time. To me, this guy is perfect for lighting on a Sunday afternoon when the house is tidy and you're ready to wind down.
