20 picks to cozy up your home this winter
Fat Sheep Rug
Move over sheep, I want on that rug! I love the big chunky cables; they're so tactile. Place it in front of a fire, add a few plush pillows, and it's the perfect spot for tucking into a good book.
Wood and Wool Stool by Wood Wool Stool - $108
From rainbow brights to zen white on white, Ingrid Jansen's crocheted stools come in a variety of colors to suit any decor. The mix of scabrous wood and knit wool has all the coziness of grandma's house, but is still totally modern.
Felt Hot Water Bottle Cover
Simplemente Blanco's hot water bottle cover in soft cream felt is serenely lovely. But the wool and knit versions are pretty wonderful as well.
How much do I want one of these cushions from Zilalila? Knit from 100-percent New Zealand wool by women in Nepal, they're just big and beautiful. In this grown-up version of a bean bag, you can slouch like your teen, but still be stylish.
Optic Blanket - GBP 215.95
This is the cover I'm coveting this season: Eleanor Pritchard's Optic Blanket. Woven in Wales from pure wool, it's both folksy and modern, crisp and clean, and cozy, too.
Frost Produkt's nifty little lamp is so versatile. It has a little shelf for a drink or keys, and if the lights go out — or you simply want more ambiance — you just flip the light over and it becomes a candlestick.
Woods Wallpaper - $198
Make any home your own little cabin in the woods with this birch forest wallpaper by Cole and Son. It has all the snugness and magic of a quiet, snow-covered grove.
Nature Sheep Cushion
I can't decide whether I want to lay my head against this shaggy pillow from Nord or give it a hug. I guess I'll just have to get two.
Hot Cocoa Mug - $25
I may be all grown up, but I still love hot chocolate on a cold day. White Forest Pottery's cocoa mug is my personal favorite. The smooth eggshell-white cup with finger-size grooves is perfect for warming hands while you sip this sweet treat.
Matteo Due Shag Bath Towels
I don't think I've ever seen towels this plush! These extra thick beauties from Matteo are so luxurious; they make every day feel like a spa day.
Zani & Zani Pentola Stock Pot, Matte White - $120
Piping hot soup never looked cooler than it does in this sleek stock pot from Zani & Zani. I love the clean lines and tall silhouette.
Knitted Egg Warmers with Yellow Pom by Imali - $10
Soft boiled eggs are always warm and sunny, especially in these witty cozies by Imali. The yolk-colored pom-pom is the piece d' resistance.
Malm Fireplace - $1,500
Is it me, or does this stove by Malm remind you of a Star Wars Stormtrooper? Nonetheless, it's totally cool — err, hot.
360 Orb Condo Sofa - $3,495
I just want to grab a book and lounge all day in this generous, down 360 Orb Condo Sofa. All those pillows offer the perfect support for a reading marathon.
Cotton Wreath - $58
This cotton wreath from Terrain looks like withered flowers kissed by snow.
Cow Art Photo French Country by Lucy Snowe Photography - $22
Humor is one of the best medicines against the cold. Just looking at these two comical cows captured by Lucy Snowe makes me feel cozy. I think they're saying, "Hey you, lady with the camera. You look cold. You really should have a much shaggier coat."
Lina Rennell Sheepskin - $185
Fluffy, soft and snuggly, this sheepskin by Lina Rennell is made for hibernating.
Is your house a little too perfectly appointed? You might want to break it up with this original Woozily Lamp. It's is so refreshingly chaotic.
WOLF iPad Case, Felt by Feruto Bags
Your laptop needs a cozy winter coat as well. I love how this this protective felt sleeve from Feruto Bags sports a crisp winter collar.
White Porcelain Teapot - $299.17
I have tea every day at 3 p.m. (Jasmine in the summer, Earl Grey in the winter). It's a lovely break in a hectic day, a little peaceful pick-me-up. It seems to me that this beautifully balanced pot by Matthias Kaiser would be the perfect vessel to deliver my daily brew.
Along with a perky personality, Hansa's Arctic Hare has an extra thick layer of fuzzy fur that's perfect for snuggling on chilly nights.
Paintbrush Ticking Flannel Bedding - $28
To me, flannels were made for mornings in bed. These comfy pinstripe sheets from Garnet Hill are snug enough to make me want to stay all day.
Cowhide Hip Flask - GBP 32
Nothing beats the cold like a roaring fire and a little nip. With its white winter coat, Trove's cowhide flask looks as warm as the fiery spirits within.
Simply Scandinavian by Magnus Englund, Caroline Clifton-Mogg and Sara Norr - $19.77
As the masters of winter living, Scandinavians have warm white interiors down. For pages upon pages of Nordic inspiration, this book is a must-have.
