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.

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.
