The best chunky knits and crochet patterns for beginners
When temperatures drop and winter days start to get shorter there’s nothing I love more than getting cosy and hibernating under the covers in the bedroom all weekend long (or for a full two weeks at Christmas!)
I’m guessing you’re happy to do the same at this time of year, am I right?
There’s no need to totally overhaul your whole room to feel the full hygge benefits of snuggling up with your loved ones (including the furry variety!)
Here are some simple ideas that you can use in your own home to feel the winter love.*
LET THERE BE LIGHT
Getting your lighting right as the nights draw in is essential in creating a cosy feel and subdued lighting is a must, no harsh overhead lights here please!
Create pools of gentle light by adding small lamps spread around the room with brighter task lighting reserved for reading areas or dressing tables.
Fairy lights add a magical effect, and of course in the run up to Christmas you could always go all out and add in a small tree – adding greenery to our homes is one of the most effective ways to help with those gloomy feelings linked to Seasonal Affective Disorder when we crave sunlight.
No winter bedroom would be complete without flickering candle light, look for slightly heavier scents that inspire comforting thoughts such as seasonal fig or rich & fragrant pomegranate noir
