Gone are the days of the long hot summer nights that had us desperately looking for ways to cool down. Don’t get us wrong, the summer days will be missed however we cannot deny the feeling of waking up refreshed after a long, uninterrupted, blissful sleep!
On the chilliest of nights there is nothing better than climbing into a bed that swallows you up and cuddles you with warmth and happiness! As winter is upon us, we are here to help you invest in your well-being and provide you with many years of restful sleep and luxurious comfort.
Start with your sheets!
Soft, fluffy flannelette sheets are super snug and give us childhood nostalgia of getting tucked into our winter bed. It is super important to invest in good quality flannelettes to avoid pilling and shedding. If this is not for you then choose cotton sheets with a high thread count or sheets made from 100% linen for the perfect natural fibre option that breathes and repels moisture away from your skin.
Choosing the right duvet inner is a must!!
It really is the be all and end all of a good night’s sleep. For us, it is a silk filled duvet inner all the way! Unbelievably luxurious, silk has extraordinary properties unknown in other materials. Silk is valued for its health giving benefits for the skin and hair. Scientists and athletes use silk as ultimate breathable material, with its large fibres reducing thermo conductivity, either trapping air next to the skin to keep you warm in the cold, or drawing it away from the body in hotter temperatures. Soft, light and naturally hypoallergenic, silk is ideal for allergy sufferers. Which duvet inner to choose depends on your individual body temperature and ambient temperature of your room.
Tip: To avoid the nightly battle of stealing your duvet back from your partner or having it slide too far over one edge, we recommend sizing up when purchasing your inner as the extra overhang on each side of the bed will help to keep it more in place. It also looks more generous visually when the bed is made.
Layer up with a quilted bedspread!
Our quilted bedspreads can be used all year around with just a sheet or can be draped on top of your duvet in the cooler months. Filled with surgical cotton along with our use of fine quality natural fibres, these bedspreads are breathable and highly absorbent, helping you sleep soundly as it naturally ventilates. Bedding made using natural fibres lasts twice as long as man-made fibres meaning you won't need to replace them often.
Add on a comforter!
Our range of comforters provide comfort both visually and physically, featuring soft washed linen/cotton mixes and sumptuous velvets in a selection of dreamy hues. With their high loft weight, they transition you through the seasons perfectly, providing the ultimate deluxe addition to your winter bedding. Your comforter can be folded on the end of the bed for an injection of colour and texture, pulled up to use as an extra layer at night and used to snuggle down with for a daytime nap.
Amp up the ambience!
These next few decorative touches may not warm you literally but have a big impact on turning your bedroom into a cosy retreat. Colours have a huge effect on our mood and the way we feel. Richer, darker colours cocoon us through the winter months so invite them in! Hues of warm copper, antique gold, walnut, indigo and deep pinks ensure a welcoming, warm space. By adding these accent colours in as accessories such as cushions, pillowcases, eurocases and throws, it can change the whole atmosphere of your room without breaking the bank!
Don’t forget the finishing touches!
Something that is easily overlooked but makes a world of difference. Burn a scented candle, spray a gorgeous pillow mist on your bedding, switch on your bedside lamp for some mood lighting and lay down a plush rug to warm your feet when it’s time to say goodbye to your winter sanctuary in the morning.
