Whilst there is something wonderful and magical about looking out and seeing a blanket of snow or even crunching through crisp, freshly fallen snow most of us find at this time of year, as the days shorten, we just look to stay snug and warm in our own little space.
Don't get me wrong, while that fresh and bracing feeling of air from a crisp winter's morning can be invigorating, that chilling, wet windy day just makes you want to curl up on the lounge with a good book or a binge watch under a soft woollen throw and indulge in your favourite cuppa.
For Winter style inspiration you don't have to look too much further than the Scandinavians. They effortlessly manage to mix style and practicality in perfect balance. Whatever ideas you borrow from Scandi style to style your own space they will always have a practical application and timeless durability.
So don't feel guilty, grab that beautiful new, fine but durable china teacup; nestle in on the lounge under your new Scandi woollen throw and revel in the self care you deserve as you shut the winter cold outside.
