Homes+ (Australia) - - NEWS -

Wel­come to our cosy win­ter is­sue. If I’d been able to make the cover furry I would have, but in­stead this is­sue is full of new sea­son decor ideas, touchyfeely tex­tures, sink-into sofa styling and beds you wouldn’t want to leave (learn how to layer yours like a pro, page 76).

Not to men­tion more cush­ions and throws than a Moroc­can boudoir. And speak­ing of that, our stylist Fiona has cre­ated the loveli­est Moroc­can liv­ing room that’s burst­ing with on-trend buys at af­ford­able prices (page 74). It’s ex­otic, spicy and will make you want to drink scented tea from a glass. And, for that win­ter af­ter­noon DIY project you’ve been look­ing for, there’s a Moroc­can-in­spired cush­ion to make.

“Cosi­ness” has been a per­sonal theme lately, too. We planned to move back into our home for the re­main­der of our reno but when the Sydney win­ter rudely ar­rived overnight, the build­ing site seemed as snug as eat­ing an ice-cream on an ice­berg. So, thanks to some lovely friends, we have been res­cued from the dust and draughts and plunged into the com­fort of flick­er­ing fires and toasty beds.

For me, it’s been in­ter­est­ing to see how peo­ple cosy-up their homes (I’m so buy­ing some flan­nelette sheets) and I can re­port that never be­fore have I seen so many furry throws to wrap my­self in: on ev­ery chair, sofa and bed. If you haven’t bought yours yet, you’ve come to the right place. Stay snug!
