Brrr its cold outside! While many animals hibernate as a means of survival, when the cold, wet and wintery weather closes in, the idea of spending time in a warm, snug spot is very appealing. What better place to spend a freezing cold day than curled up in the comfort of your bed with a hot chocolate and a good book? And that makes your bed the ideal place to start when constructing your own cosy, winter sanctuary. At MiniJumbuk, we have masses of warming tips but here are a few of our favourite to get you started.
- Create an inviting space with texture and layers. Head to the warm end of the colour spectrum, choosing deep red, burnt orange and earthy chocolate. Use floor rugs for warmth under foot. Slide into the cosiness of flannelette sheets - a simple and inexpensive winter must have. Then add a colourful mix of cushions and pillows in soft, luxurious fabrics for comfort on long afternoons of relaxed lounging.
- Snuggle down under a deliciously light St Albans throw or blanket. This third generation Australian textile company has been delivering beautiful woven and knitted products since 1951. Using the finest of natural fibres including wool, mohair, alpaca and cashmere, St Albans produce premium rugs perfect for an afternoon nap, a great night's sleep or an extra layer on the coldest of nights.
- Invest in a MiniJumbuk mattress topper. The ultimate in warmth and comfort, the Sleep Therapy mattress topper will transform your bed to a small slice of heaven. All natural, breathable wool means no more overheating or cold draughts through your mattress. With multiple layers of cushioning support, the natural springiness of wool disperses body weight evenly, reducing pressure points and enhancing comfort. Treat yourself, make your bed a luxuriously, sumptuous spot to contemplate the elements and plan for warmer days.
