Winter is Coming – 8 Tips For Beating The Chill

Winter is coming and with it, the chilly weather. Adding a fireplace to your bedroom is probably a non-starter but there’s plenty of easy changes you can make to turn your bedroom into a cosy, welcoming space that you’ll be loath to leave. So, when the temperature dives, here are a few of our favourite ideas;

Create Ambience with Candlelight

Candles are a lovely way to add warm light if your bedroom isn’t equipped with a roaring fireplace and they also can smell amazing – just make sure you blow them out before you fall asleep.

Make Your Bed Warm & Inviting

Make your bed a cosy retreat from the winter cold and a warm place to dream about spring by adding extra layers. Mix and match blankets – there’s no greater feeling than snuggling up under a soft, warm blanket on a cold winter’s night – and top with a stylish throw that can double for extra warmth at night.

More Cushions

You can never have too many cushions and they’re a great way of adding texture and introducing colour into a bedroom. So, add plenty of cushions and pillows, to sink into for comfort, lounging and of course, sleeping. A mattress topper will also add an additional warm layer.
