Ahh, winter. The season of sparkling snow, cascading our cities in blankets of dazzling white. As flurries float onto the ground, a quiet hush seems to fill the air, setting the scene for a long season of hibernation.
Although winter brings a bounty of beauty, it can also be bone-chillingly cold. No matter where you live, adjusting to the drop in temperature can be tough. But, there’s no better time than this to enter a cozy frame of mind.
The frosty weather can inspire us to embrace staying home, snuggling up and enjoying life’s simple comforts. (The Danish have already mastered this concept for centuries—it’s called “hygge” living.) To keep you merry and bright all season long, here are four ideas to stay warm this winter.
1. Heat up your feet
It’s a detail we often forget: When our feet are cold, it’s nearly impossible for the rest of our bodies to stay warm. So, don your thickest socks and slide on your fuzziest slippers, and you’ll feel much cozier. We love a good pair of moccasins, because the faux-fur lining and full heel coverage keep your feet ultra-toasty.

3. Sip on something steamy
From hot chocolate and foamy lattes to herbal tea and apple cider, heat things up with a warm, delicious drink. Take the time to brew your favourite beverage from scratch. Then, sip it slowly to appreciate the feeling of warming yourself from the inside, out. You’ll raise your body’s internal temperature, while rewarding your senses with mouth-watering flavours.

4. Snuggle close in soft sheets
Now that winter is here, you’re going to need the right sheets for the occasion. To combat the cold, opt for thick yet breathable fabrics, so you can keep the heat in without feeling stifled. Our Refined Sheet Sets are cozy beyond imagination, with a sateen weave for the perfect amount of softness. From crisp white to midnight navy, our chic colours add a contemporary vibe to any space.

When the cold of winter comes creeping in, there’s plenty you can do to stay cozy and content. Whether it’s slipping on warm slippers, sipping a steaming drink or shopping our soft duvets and sheets, make the most of the season with small, meaningful comforts. It may be challenging facing the chilly weather, but simplest acts of self-care often make the biggest difference in boosting your mood.
