What a strange Autumn we have had so far – unseasonably warm one day and blustering storms the next! We are looking ahead to the cooler seasons with our luxury home essentials to keep you cosy and warm.
Now, we all know layers trap in the warm air keeping you nice and toasty. For that Luxury home feel, we like extra layers everywhere – on your bed, on your sofa and especially on you!
We have a bunch of loungewear to choose from, but a basic T-shirt is a great way to start. Perfectly put together with jeans or trousers for venturing out to the office or meeting friends for lunch. Pair with PJ bottoms or joggers for a cosy day inside or even overnight! We love the Soft Stretchy T-Shirt for this comfy base layer, paired with the Knitted Loungewear, you’re sure to feel warm and snug. For extra cosy layer, the Knitted robe in either Olive or Grey can be used as both a dressing gown or cardigan. More of a Pyjama person? Our Winter Catkins Pjs are made from super soft brushed cotton – perfect for those colder nights.
We love creating a warm atmosphere with lighting! From lamps to candles, there’s a combination that can make even the coldest room feel cosy. We would recommend avoiding using the big light when trying to relax on these darker nights. It can be too bright and harsh when you’re winding down.
At the moment, we can’t get enough of rechargeable portable lights. Perfect for literally any space, brighten up your mantelpiece, bookshelves, window ledges without worrying about the nearest plug sockets or trailing wires. The Humble One Lights are perfect for use in and out of the home. They add a perfect modern touch with the classic Edison style LED bulb. For a bit more fun, the Colourful Room Lights are available in both large or small and 3 timber finishes.
My personal favourite has to be the mini Mushroom lamps! They’re the perfect combination of modern but whimsical and offer a lovely warm glow or colourful cycle. Also available in a large size if you like a statement lamp (which we do!). If you need something a little brighter, the Mobile LED Lamp is a great choice. The extra illumination is perfect for reading nooks, bedside tables and chilling out in the bath!
When it comes to candles and holders, there is so much choice! I’d really recommend checking out the full collection here.
My current favourites are the Cahm Luxury Scented Candes – Hand poured in Yorkshire, available in 4 sophisticated scents and focused on spreading a positive mental health message through beautiful design-led gifts. If you’re just after the glow, the Porcelain Lighthouses are a beautiful way to add some cosy light. The thin porcelain glows with the flicker of a tea light, shining through the small windows and giving the appearance of life within. They give an almost (dare I say) festive touch!If your decor is more colourful, Aery’s Glass Candleholders are gorgeous for both pillar and tea light candles.
I could go on and on about cosy bedding, but the main takeaway would be – Layer up!
At this time of year, you can’t go far wrong with brushed cotton bedding. Soft, fluffy and warm, they’re perfect for keeping you warm throughout the colder nights. We have a range of neutrals such as Charcoal, Stone, Pale Grey and Cream. Along with a sweet Dot design for something a bit more playful.
Wool is a fantastic insulator, so a great layer for your bed base, sofa or even just wrapped around your shoulders! Lean into those warm Autumnal colours with the Recycled Wool Throws in Purple or Orange. Faux Fur throws are perfect for this time of year. They add visual interest with their fluffy texture whilst also being incurably warm and cosy. I’ve been loving the Green from the Faux Fur Throws – Autumnal Shades or the Luxury Faux Fur Bedspreads are always a favourite!
Having a quality Mattress, Duvet and Pillows is always going to be the most important factor in terms of comfort. What is best will vary from person to person due to our own personal preferences. So, we would always recommend visiting our Sheffield showroom to see the options in person!
