Beat the chill: Cosy up your home this chilly season

While my fellow blogger Lauren is feeling the heat over in Australia, it’s getting increasingly chilly here in the Netherlands. Autumn came and went in the blink of an eye and we are feeling winter’s chill. Getting cosy is on my mind…

There's something magical about this little Scandinavian living room to me. I would love to be sitting in front of this little stove with a good book in my lap, a cup of tea on the little sidetable and my toes sunk into that deliciously warm sheepsking rug...

A lovely thick beadspread helps to keep the chill off on those cold wintry nights. A warm rug keeps those toes from freezing off. This bright and breezy bedroom looks ready for winter.

This thick cable knit throw (Martha Stewart Collection) has cosy written all over it. I adore the antique cast iron bed frame too!

Another beautiful knitted throw is a great example of how to cosy up your bedroom for chilly nights in the simplest way possible.


I love Anthropologie's knitted "Heirloom" throw! It has a fun quirkiness about it and a rainbow of pretty colours to brighten up gray, wintry days.


Speaking of Anthropologie, how sweet is this "Oh to dream" quilt cover? With it's whimsical charm and soft pastelly colour pallete, it's lovely for big and little kids alike.


Though minimalist and fuss free in its design, this living room is given the cosy factor through the addition of a faux fur on the leather couch. 

Sending you warm and fuzzy thoughts from chilly Holland!

Love, Holly
