14 Must-haves For A Cosy Winter Home
Our cosiest picks to keep you toasty and warm through winter.
We’re obsessed by Freight HHG’s minimal but perfectly crafted aesthetic. This Shetland Island sheepskin is the ultimate thing to throw over an armchair and sink into for hours of snug bliss.
We’re big hot water bottle fans (it’s a product whose sole purpose is to give you a warm hug; what’s not to love?). We’re intrigued by this unusual galvanised steel rendition of the classic. But do note, fill with warm – NEVER boiling – water!
Keeping toes toasty is the first commandment of cosiness. How better to do so than with this gorgeous sheepskin pair of slippers?
This hand-spun, hand-woven throw is gloriously soft and comforting. Just the thing for curling up with on a winter’s eve.
As the mercury plummets, we’ll mostly be found by the fire. We’re coveting this handmade basket – hewn from Dicky Meadow Willow –for all our kindling and newspaper storage needs.
Rowen and Wren has almost too much to choose from when it comes to stylish but cosy accoutrements for the home. But since candlelight is everything in winter, we find this Florence Nightingale-reminiscent candleholders irresistible.
The idea of getting socks in your stocking for Christmas used to seem unimaginably dull. These days, we’d welcome a pair of such sublimely soft examples as these (in the red colourway, please).
For those of us who don’t have an open fire at home, candles help set the tone and give ambient warmth to a room (if not literal heat). We love this one by Plum and Ashby, which recreates the scent of the last embers of a fire. Heaven.
We’ve always been big fans of a patchwork quilt, and although this one suggests its for your bed, it will, in fact, be accompanying us straight to the sofa for obligatory duvet days this winter.
Maker & Son claims to make the comfiest armchairs and sofas in existence. We’re dreaming of pulling this one up to the fire and then staying put – perhaps for days on end. It comes in all manner of colourways, and is big enough for two to snuggle on, hence its name.
These mini houses looks utterly charming illuminated by tealight. Dot them about the house or cluster together on a mantelpiece or dresser.
Was there ever a creation more suitable for nuzzling into and cocooning yourself from the cold than this? No, is the correct answer.
If you err on the side of classic cosy when it comes to your hot water bottle, this sheepskin beauty is the stuff of huggable dreams.
It is imperative that winter afternoons spent curled up with a book must be accompanied with multiple cups of cocoa. We have our eye on this beautifully chunky mug for all our hot choc needs this season.
