The winter weather is starting to bite, and as the long nights close in it's worth reconsidering some of your room's features.

Warm up your home with these 5 cosy winter accessories.


Invest in new throws

Give your home an instant lift by investing in a comfortable winter throw for your chairs or bed.

Why not bring an abstract design into your home with this reversible bed throw from John Lewis? Or this monochrome check throw from M&S is the perfect complement for neutral coloured rooms.


Electric fireplaces

An electronic fireplace is perfect for recreating an intimate winter evening around the fire without the smoke, smell and sparks.

This portable table-top Bow Burner, from Bio Fires, produces a flickering flame and burns for approximately 90 minutes.

The small burner is easy to set up and uses Bio Ethanol fuel, which can generate 1.5kW of heat – excellent for those cold winter nights.   


Toasty Mugs

On a bitterly cold day, we naturally wrap our hands around a warm cup of tea or coffee to get some heat back into our bodies.

Italian homeware specialists Sabrina Fossi used this idea and designed the Toasty Mug.

The ceramic mug features an enveloping handle, which keeps both hands cosy while you hold your piping hot tea.

Pick one up from online retailer Beaut.

Cable Knit Pillows

Cable knit pillows are an inexpensive way to add warmth and a touch of elegance to your living room.

These pillows can come in all shapes and sizes, from the round, chunky pillows like this one on Etsy to this slick, traditional design from Jigsaw.

Or if you want to create one yourself, follow these handy guides from All Free Knitting.


Winter Rugs

Versatile and comfortable, rugs can be changed with the season and will make your home feel cosy and inviting this winter.

Wooden floors may look stylish but those cold tiles can send shivers down your spine on a winter's morning. Why not try this thick plush rug from The Rug Seller, which exudes both comfort and class.
