Cosy Textures

Cosy Textures

As winter closes in we all want to feel cosy and comfortable in our homes. Theres nothing nicer than being cosy on the sofa when it gets dark. Drawing inspiration form the concept of Hygge (which seems to be everywhere at the minute) lets embrace some Danish idealogy because it means lighting candles, cosying on the sofa and generally taking time to enjoy some peace and quiet and downtime.Here are some ways to add softness and tactile materials into your home to make it a warm inviting place to spend time.

Blankets & Throws

For watching TV on a cold winter's night what is better than a cosy blanket to keep you warm. The chunkier the better like these handmade throws made in Belfast by Ona By Agne, a member of Studio Souk are perfect to add some warmth on those cold evenings plus they look great draped over a chair or as a throw on a bed. Look out for quirky details like these pom pom tassels from Oliver Bonas or quilted blankets for extra warmth.


Add touchable cushions to your sofa to create an inviting place to curl up. There are so many to choose from at the minute from faux fur, jacquard, woven and, the key fabric of the season- velvet. Again look out for tactility detailing like raised woven details and pom pom trims. These handmade faux fur stars by Suburban Salon are a personal favourite.

Stools and Foot stools

Add a touch of luxury with a faux fur, velvet or sheepskin stool, perfect for putting your feet up after a long day at work (glass of wine optional) The faux fur and sheepskin stools are all hand made to order by Suburban Salon in England, you should check out their Instagram page for some serious interiors envy! For a pop of colour why not invest in these bright coloured velvet stools from Oliver Bonas available in a variety of colours.



There's nothing nicer than a soft fluffy rug beneath your feet and these sheepskin offerings from Dust in Dublin are hard to beat! Drape over a chair to create layers to your room or add to a wooden floor to add warmth. Check out the dust website for eclectic home accessories curated by Sarah and Lisa in Dublin.

Hope you are all cosy in your homes and the post gave some inspiration on how to keep warm through the winter in style!
