How to pull off winter blues at home

People traditionally veer away from blue during the wintertime, it appears cold and distant when we’re looking for warmth and company. However, give it a moody element with plenty of texture and it will create a simple yet luxurious winter blues that’s meant to be layered up.

Here’s our round-up for winter blues to love, from cushions to large pieces of furniture, all of which are guaranteed to lift your mood.

Hibernate

Sleep your worries away in this gorgeous, cosy bedding, above, from Le Monde Sauvage, the check adds a lovely masculine warmth to it.
