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!
