It seems almost everyone is missing the warm summer days, but not me – I have to admit I quite enjoy the chill in the air  I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than returning home, stepping into my slippers, putting the kettle on and relaxing on the sofa.

Avoid that gloomy seasonal feeling with my 10 helpful tips – these will ensure your home is nice and cosy for the colder months:

 

1) A Comfy New Sofa

Relaxing just isn’t the same without a cup of tea or hot chocolate, and that’s why this bright red and white mug is perfect for a little break during the day.

6) A Sweet-Smelling  Candle

When I unwind at home I tend to light a candle or two to create a calm atmosphere. Try a candle with an autumn rose, rosebud cherry or winter honeysuckle fragrance.

7) The King of Beds

Linea Superior Divan Set, 150cm

If you share a bed with your partner, a king size bed is the best solution. Why? Well, a standard double bed (135cm) gives each person just 2ft 3in of space, which is less than a baby in a cot – now that’s a bit of a squeeze! King size beds are 150cm wide by approximately 200cm long, so roughly15cm wider and 10cm longer than a double bed. Trust me, once you’ve slept in a king size bed you’ll never want to sleep in a standard double again…

8) A Duvet for the Colder Seasons

Linea Goose Down Duvet

With the nights getting colder, you want to feel comfortable and cosy under the covers. This duvet from Linea has a goose down and feather filling, which means it’s exceptionally soft and lightweight, but warm too!

9) A Sumptuous Bedspread

This deep red bedspread will add style and depth to your bed. Plus, it will act as an extra layer when it’s really cold.

10) A Bedside Lamp

Linea Hanna Table Lamp

A good lamp is key to creating a relaxing atmosphere in any room. This sleek design by Linea creates a warm glow which is ideal for when you’re reading in bed, plus it’s so easy to use with its touch chrome activated base.

That’s enough about me… do you have any tips to make your home a cosy haven this winter?
