Winter home accessories
1 Cashmere throw
There's nothing more cosy than a Sunday night by the fire while there's a winter storm swirling around outside. Keep yourself warm with a soft throw, like these luxe fringed cashmere ones. $199 US each, Restoration Hardware.
2 Snow globes
Not just associated with Christmas anymore, snow globes are a great way to enjoy the winter season without having to go outside in the cold. Go for globes with a non-holiday feel, like these stylish white ones featuring a rabbit, peacock and barren tree. $30 US each, West Elm .
Lanterns are a fantastic way to add some winter charm to both the interior and exterior of your home. Create a vignette with a variety of sizes and light neutral-coloured pillar candles inside. From $19 each, Pottery Barn.
4 Wintery soap
An easy way to make your home feel winter fresh is to simply change up the soap in your kitchen and bathroom. After December, stay away from ultra-holiday scented soaps and opt for a more neutral fragrance, like these winter berry bars. $6 US each, MBeaSoap on Etsy.
Dark trees and bare branches don't need to be a sad reminder that summer is gone. This stunning photo from Alicia Bock is a reminder that winter can be a beautiful time and we can embrace the outdoors from the comfort of our homes. $35 US, AliciaBock on Etsy.
Give your home's interior a warm glow this season with a selection of candles throughout. Made from bone china, these candleholders and hurricane vases have snowflake cut-outs so the light shines through. From $9 US, Crate & Barrel. 7 Quilt
Winter nights can be chilly, so make sure that you always have extra bedding on hand when the temperatures drop below zero. This soft cotton quilt, which was stitched and ruched by hand, is the perfect companion for a cold winter's eve. From $100 US, West Elm.
8 Hot chocolate
A mug of hot chocolate can turn even the coldest winter day into a warm affair. This gift set contains chocolate shavings (which melt quickly in hot milk) and a hot chocolate pot with a frother. Perfect!
$40 US, Williams-Sonoma.
9 Firewood container
Although most homes have electric heating, there's nothing like lighting a fire and heating up during the winter months. Keep firewood contained by the hearth in a basket or bucket like this vintaged copper one. $229 US, Pottery Barn.
10 Velvet drapes
Winter winds often bring drafts, so insulate your windows and hang heavy drapes to keep the heat in. These ones are heavyweight velvet, come in a selection of colours and have a cotton lining for protection against sun damage. From $179 US each, Restoration Hardware.
