Winter has definitely arrived, and while I hate the cold and can't wait for Spring, I also can't deny that this time of year is ideal for making the most of our homes. Summer is all about enjoying every glimpse of sunshine, while Winter is about wrapping up inside with roaring fires, hot stews, and cosy chairs for company.
While you can't beat a real fireplace, this electric fire from Next strikes the perfect balance between traditional and contemporary.
I could definitely see myself sat back in this, in front of the fire, with a good book. Bliss.
There's no easier way to add instant warmth to a room than with a rug. Just be sure to choose one that is soft and high-pile like this GASER rug from Ikea.
If you don't have a fire (or even if you do), candles are a great way to make a room feel warmer and more welcoming. How sweet are these reindeer tealight holders?
For some reason, outdoor Christmas decorations almost always seem to lean somewhere between a little bit tacky, and really, really tacky. This tree is quite the opposite. Shame it's out of stock, but I will be keeping my eye on it....
