There’s nothing like the colder months to make your bed a cosy haven. Add loads of layers … think throws in faux fur or velvet, blankets in flannel or knit or (oh … winter bliss) the ever-popular Sherpa. You can add a quilt too … no longer just for granny’s room, they’re making a huge comeback – and the reversible quilts with coordinating prints are fab – ring the changes, depending on your mood. Slipping between crisp cotton sheets is always wonderful, but if you really suffer from the cold, consider brushed cotton sheets – the fabric is brushed to create a nap that traps in air to hold in the heat, making them wonderfully soft and warm. Volpes, our local linen specialist, has an exceptional (and jolly well-priced) range … well worth visiting before Jack Frost arrives with a vengeance. Details: volpes.co.za.
