Beginning to feel the chill? Winter is on the way! Darker mornings, shorter days and colder nights might not seem the best way to spend the next few months though it’s not all bah humbug and winter blues! There are plenty of ways to get into the season, starting with creating a cosy, warm bedroom. Yes friends-tis’ the season to fall in love with bedtime. From a fluffy duvet to spicy cinnamon candles, here are some toasty ways to turn your bedroom into a winter wonderland!
Wrap up Warm
Winter is all about the snuggling… Which is why the first thing on any cosy wish list is a duvet you could stay wrapped in all day. (And- why not? It’s cold out there) Upping your tog as the temperature drops is a sensible idea- though there is a feather-free alternative! Buy a bamboo duvet! The fabric is naturally thermo-regulating, keeping you breezing through summer and snug as a bug in winter. Yep- four seasons, one duvet. So come Spring you can get straight on with the BBQ.s. And once you have found the perfect duvet, give it a cosy winter wardrobe. Soft, silky bedding in seasonal tones will make the bedroom your favourite place to be till the clocks go back forward!
Add a scented glow
Little changes can make a big difference to the ambience of your bedroom. Add a sweet, winter glow to your nest with delicious smelling candles. Think spicy cinnamon, warming clove and zest orange, twinkling candlelight is essential for any winter wonderland. You know what to tell everyone you want for Christmas! Gentle light before bed is also great for winding down, it encourages the production of melatonin easing you into a better night’s rest. Picture the scene… you snuggled up in your duvet in bed with a good book and wafts of cinnamon. Sounds a bit like a wonderland, no?
Keep toes toasty
Still, got cold feet about winter? Here is a toasty idea! A soft, cosy rug to land on when you jump out of bed. Having something warm and fluffy under your feet is a winter essential, in fact why stop at the bedroom? Rugs can be put in any room of the house with a cold floor, as the temperature drops. Keeping toes toasty makes for a happier winter. Choose seasonal colours to match your bedding and interiors. Who said bedtime can’t be stylish? Speaking of which…
The only party to be seen this season, right? Arrive in style in the comfiest PJ’s you can find. Why not go all out and make them match your bedding? And throw in some cosy socks while you are at it! The snugglier the better. Choose materials that are going to keep you nice and warm. Bamboo also makes PJ’s if you are looking for something seasonal and planet-friendly. Let’s face it, they are worth the investment as you are going to have a fair- few- duvet days to attend this winter.
The final touch to any winter wonderland is the perfect pillow! As this season involves a lot of resting and Netflix in bed, make sure you are laying on something supportive and soft. Memory foam is pretty famous in the pillow world for being just the right combo of both (if you are looking for an upgrade) This is the season to catch up on your beauty sleep so it’s worth finding the right one. Choose some stylish pillowcases and voila, your winter wonderland awaits!
Now your bedroom’s all set for a cosy winter, allow yourself to slow down and enjoy it. Take pleasure in spending more time at home! Think snugly nights on the sofa and hot cups of cocoa before bed. There is magic in every season, and with your own little wonderland… winter could become your favourite time of year.
