Cosy Interiors: let’s stay inside

A British winter can seem never-ending; the season dampened by drizzly weather, cold winds and dark nights. But this is the perfect season for a cosy home that can be your sanctuary while the winter rages on outside. Taking pleasure and contentment from a cosy environment is known in Danish culture as ‘hygge’. In the quest for creating a more hygge home, why not start with your walls? So here's our advice: hunker down with a hot cup of cocoa and read on for our cosy interior inspiration and the best wallpapers to backdrop the room you never want to leave.

As the season changes and we spend less time outdoors it is calming to be reminded of the natural world outside by bringing a touch of nature indoors. Natural textures create immersive spaces which inspire slow living.
