And finally to one of the most popular of wintertime interior touches – blankets. Popular for good reason, nothing says cosy like a sofa with a blanket draped over its arm so you know it’s always just a stretch away, or an armchair with a basket at its side with a blanket stashed away. But be sure to include your bedroom in the blanket action. Go for one statement throw at the foot of your bed for starters with it pulled up to at least halfway down your bedspread – pick out a coordinating cushion to really reinforce its presence. Next, choose another blanket to layer on top, though not letting it come quite so high up the bed. This way, both blanket layers are seen, felt and appreciated. With your bed of blankets laying the comforting winter foundations, build on the cosiness by adding in a sumptuously soft and textured sheepskin cushion or two. To them, introduce a rug at the side of the bed for your feet to find first thing in the morning and last thing at night. What could be more cosseting for winter than that?
