Weekends are made for long, lazy lie-ins – the chance to grab a few precious moments tucked away from the cold and rain outside…..bliss. Taking refuge from the winter is all about nesting, so create a sleep sanctuary that you won’t want to leave with fabulous furniture and snuggly accessories.
Start by picking out your bed or bedframe, the feature piece around which the rest of the room will be styled. We’re a big fan of the Rye bedframe – made from reclaimed and recycled wood, it provides a warm, silky sun-dried finish that fits with both classic and contemporary décor.
Then it’s time to pile on the comfort in the shape of throws and cushions. Choose a neutral palette or enhance your existing colour scheme with striking patterns and bold prints.
For contemporary sophistication you can’t go past the Stone Stripe Double Duvet Set. This stylish bed linen oozes luxury thanks to its chambray weave that gives a subtle, two-tone appearance and carefully placed buttons that give a designer feel.
For when there’s snow upon snow, it’s definitely time for throw upon throw. Let your creativity reign as you mix and match, add texture and pattern, cosy up with cushions and simply luxuriate in the results.
And don’t forget about the floor. Shaggy and sheepskin rugs not only feel wonderful, they add a valuable textural quality to a bedroom – the Plush rug is suitable for both modern and traditional homes and comes a wide range of colours – from white or taupe to red or rust.
When daytime light levels are low, it’s important to give the room a glow of its own. Once it’s really dark, pools of light from pendant shades and sculptural lamps will help to make your bedroom even more of a haven.
Light up your bedside with the Metal and Concrete Lamp with Handloom White Shade. The Scandi style provides a crisp, clean look, while the copper colouring adds to an overall impression of cosiness and combines well with gleaming woods.
Alternatively, create an atmospheric glow with a statement floor lamp, such as the Timothy Oulton Rod Short Floor Lamp. 1920’s Art Deco inspired, this beautiful product has dozens of light-refracting glass rods to create a beautiful bedroom ambiance.
So snuggle down and simply wait for warmer weather. Baby, it’s cold outside – but who cares?
