How to cre­ate a cosy cor­ner just for you this win­ter

Little Treasures - - CONTENTS - Pho­tog­ra­phy by Bryce Carl­ton Styling by Emily Bell


As a mother it can be tricky to find time to your­self, es­pe­cially with a new­born in tow. So what do you do when you need time out, be it dur­ing nap­time or when the lit­tlies are at kindy? Cre­ate a cosy nook in your home.

We’re talk­ing a cor­ner you can make your own, one that doesn’t change the land­scape of your room. It’s a space for you or your part­ner to take some much needed ‘me time’. Pick an area of your house where the chil­dren haven’t in­vaded. This could be a cor­ner of the spare room, liv­ing room, or by the fire. En­hance this space with beau­ti­ful tex­tiles, in­tri­cate prints, a lamp with a soft glow. In­stall a shelf or some draw­ers that hold your down­time es­sen­tials: head­phones, your favourite novel, choco­late the kids haven’t dis­cov­ered and a mind­ful­ness colour­ing book.
