SNUG­GLE UP

to help you stay toasty dur­ing win­ter, change your du­vet to one with a higher tog rat­ing. a 13.5 to 15 tog du­vet is de­signed for the colder months as it has bet­ter ther­mal in­su­la­tion prop­er­ties than those with a lower tog. also con­sider in­vest­ing in a lux­u­ri­ous feather-and-down-filled du­vet. not only is its warmth and soft­ness hard to beat, but it weighs a lot less than a syn­thetic one.

STAY WARM

the per­fect win­ter bed­ding should trap body heat but re­main breath­able and com­fort­able. Brushed cotton is soft to the touch and a great op­tion for your du­vet cover if you’re look­ing for some­thing tac­tile and cosy. Wool bed­ding is a good yearround choice as it reg­u­lates your tem­per­a­ture as you sleep, so you stay cool in sum­mer and warm in

win­ter. this is also ideal for cou­ples who have dif­fer­ent tem­per­a­ture pref­er­ences.

FIN­ISH­ING TOUCHES

adding cush­ions and pil­lows is a quick and easy way to make your bed look and feel invit­ing. Layer a chunky knit throw or quilt on top of your du­vet on cold nights or try an elec­tric blan­ket, which warms up the bed be­fore you get in. Pick a fleece or mi­crofi­bre throw for a soft touch, or drape a faux-fur blan­ket over the end of the bed for a stylish fin­ish.
