HOW TO HAVE THE ULTIMATE COSY NIGHT IN

As the nights draw in, embrace the chillier season and plan a relaxing night at home

Turn your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary

A few smart additions can turn your bedroom into a tranquil space where you can relax and recharge.

• Bedside lamps do more than just make your room look like a boutique hotel – their gentle light creates a tranquil ambience to lull you into a sleep-ready state.

• It’s not just what you sleep on, but what you sleep in that counts – pure cotton nightwear feels soft next to your skin but is breathable for added comfort.

• Are you a cold sleeper, a hot sleeper, or a sensitive sleeper? Buy your bedding accordingly to maximise your sleep. Find out more here.

• Adding brushed cotton bedding or a fleece throw to your bed will bring plenty of cosiness during chillier nights

Have the ultimate at-home date

Turn your living room into a haven to hibernate in and have the ultimate movie date night at home.

• Get comfortable in luxe loungewear. Our cashmere hoodies and sweatpants are so cosy you’ll never want to take them off. Or amp up the glam factor in a pair of luxe satin PJs. More loungewear ideas this way.

• Create sofa heaven with a mix of velvet tactile throw pillows and keep a chunky throw on standby to keep you cosy during TV streaming binges.

• Prepare your favourite fuss-free dinner, throw on some fresh herbs, dish up on fancy dinnerware, and serve with a pre-mixed cocktail.


Make a meal of it

A few smart additions can turn your bedroom into a tranquil space where you can relax and recharge.

• Even a Monday-night dinner at home can feel special if you bring out the good crockery and add a few simple touches to elevate the table.

Napkins can add colour or pattern to the table, and a bunch of seasonal flowers in a simple glass vase provides a pretty focal point.

• Whether you’re cooking from scratch, bringing the restaurant to you with delicious ready meals or heating up leftovers, make a meal of it. Serve in an oven-to-table dish or platter and add a sprinkle of fresh herbs for a tasty finishing touch.


Turn your bathroom into a spa

A bath is a brilliant way to unwind. Here’s how to turn a standard soak into a decadent, spa-style experience.

• Set the scene and help your mind unwind by lighting a scented candle infused with a relaxing essential oil such as lavender.

• Add your favourite bath salts, bubble bath or bath oil to the tub, put on a face mask, lie back and read a book or magazine, or listen to an audio book or your favourite podcast.

• Invest in a plush bath mat and fluffy Egyptian cotton towels and pop them on the radiator so they’re warmed through when you step out of the bath.
