There’s no better feeling than being curled up on the couch when it’s pouring rain with a hot cup of tea in one hand and a good book in the other. Wintery weekends are calmer, the air is icier and you have more time to relax and take some much deserved time-out without any disruptions. We've listed five tips to transform your humble abode into a winter oasis for the cooler months aheads.
1. Add a luxe throw to your lounge
Adding a touch of luxe to your living area this winter has never been easier. Don’t be afraid to pair textured throws and patterned cushions with chunky knits and opulent faux furs. Set the scene with beautiful scented candles, gold accessories and your favourite books for a stylish lazy-day-in.
2. Get cosy in winter warmers
What better way to welcome winter then purchasing a new set of cosy pyjamas. A winter escape isn’t complete without comfortable attire to keep you warm and snuggly. Lounge around in beautifully soft flannelette pyjamas, a plush robe and snug slippers to stay nice and toasty all night (and day) long.
3. Upgrade your bedroom duvet cover
Transform your bedroom into a dreamy winter retreat through lush layers and soft blankets. Flannelette sheets and toasty duvet covers will keep you warm and complement your winter escape style. Pile on the pillows and a textured throw rug for a relaxed feel and incorporate on-trend winter colours, including blush and navy, to complete the look.
4. Indulge in hot drinks
A winter oasis is not complete without a hot tea or chocolate in hand. Using a breakfast tray is the perfect way to enjoy your winter beverage without spilling it. To complete your winter treat, pair your tea or hot chocolate with some delicious cookies or warm pastries.
5. Chill out with your fur baby
There’s no better way to enjoy a cold winter’s day than with a fluffy companion. Get comfortable on the couch with your fur baby – they’ll love nothing more than to snuggle by your side as you relax in your beautiful, new winter escape.
Now you know all the secrets to creating the ultimate winter escape, get the same look in your own home and relax this winter.
