Luxury wool throw
A soft, luxurious throw is the perfect home accessory to keep out the creeping cold of the British winter months. Keeping this Lambswool double-faced throw from Johnstons of Elgin at hand will ensure that you remain snug, whether you’re on your sofa or in bed. The traditional Scottish check is simply beautiful, and the 100% lambswool weave is supremely soft.
Ornate tea pot
British tradition dictates that tea is the drink of choice during the autumn and winter months, so you need to make sure you have a teapot worthy of your snug home. This Highgate Rose pot from Cath Kidston is ideal for both an early morning cuppa or afternoon tea for you and your friends.
The perfect accessory to a roaring log fire, a sheepskin rug will not only look fantastic in your living room, but it will help to retain the warmth generated in your home. This Woolmark sheepskin rug from Land of Rugs feels wonderful with its sumptuous pile and gorgeous silver colouring.
Beautiful candle holder
What better way to spend a winter’s evening than by relaxing in the glow and rich aroma of a winter scented candle. To get the best effect, combine a candle with a holder like this Monterosso Votive lantern from Yankee Candle, which will create a soothing, orange radiance within your room.
Each of these accessories will make your home a much cosier place to be. Combine their individual warming effects to create the perfect antidote for the bitterness of British winter.
