How to Make Your Home as Cosy as Possible

First of all we’d like to say that we hope everyone reading this is safe and well in the strange times we’re going through together.

With the UK on lockdown, our homes have taken on even more significance in our lives. As well as being the calming space we rely upon in order to unwind, they are at the same time acting as our offices, our classrooms, our gyms and our conference rooms.

So, how do you ensure the home remains at its core the safe space for love, laughter, kindness and relaxation?

In this article, we’ll offer you some advice on how to ensure that, once you’ve logged off that final video call for the day, you and your family feel more comfortable than ever in your home.

Cushion the blow

Your sofas will likely still be the main hub of tranquility in your homes.

Many of you will be using your couch as a makeshift office chair, however, so when the working day is done, it’s important to make sure you can really hunker down and get comfy and cosy.

One of the best ways you can do this is by taking your cushion game to the next level.

We absolutely adore these cushions – serving up everything from pure indulgence to boho chic, and a timely reminder to love each other more than ever.

Throw caution to the wind

Why stop halfway in optimising your sofa for ultimate comfort? Adding throws and blankets will give you a chance to achieve the complete snuggle factor.

Here are some of our favourites:

This Snuggle Up Stag & Hearts Fleece Throw is bright and beautiful, but more importantly, it’s soft and warm, with the interior being made from sherpa fleece.

Fancy something a little more opulent? This luxurious Scatter Box Hepburn Faux Fur Throw comes with a coordinated soft heavyweight velvet reverse for true cosiness and style.

Feeling a spring in your step? Welcome in the new season with the Riva Paoletti Shard Geometric Fringed Throw.

Get your gown on

Loungewear has never been more popular. Quarantine has given us a rare opportunity to ditch the formalwear and spend all day in our comfiest clothes, feeling good and ready for whatever the day throws at us.

Want to spend all day feeling gripped by the biggest, nicest hug imaginable? Then why not go for an extra-comfy gown or robe – and get the whole family involved!

Lovely lie-ins

For many – apart from the essential workers who are so bravely keeping the country running – the commute is a distant memory.

With more time available in bed before starting the day, we think it’s best to make use of that time by being as comfy as possible, for as long as possible.
