The new cosy: home comforts that make you happy
There’s no denying the appetite for all things comforting, from snug interiors to soothing beauty products – it's undoubtedly time to cosy up
If anything in this life is certain, if 2020 taught us anything, it's that there's no place like home. We’ve made our living spaces not only where we rest our heads but also our gym, office, spa and play area. It’s more important than ever to get your house in order and create a personal oasis that makes you feel safe, relaxed and able to make the most of your time there.
This comfort-craving started to sneak into our lives pre-Covid; with the whole athleisure movement that has now stretched way beyond tracksuits and comfortable bras. It’s turned into a state of mind and a way of life. There’s no denying the appetite for all things comforting, from creating snug interiors to our soothing beauty and wellness routines.
Forget buzzwords like millennials, baby boomers, etc; it doesn’t matter which generation box you tick – it seems we’re all just a bunch of ‘cocooners’.
A long luxurious bath, slipping into your comfort-zone clothes and endorphin-boosting treats; it’s these little moments of bliss that we can control, which help us to meander through life’s ups and downs.
Whether it’s cocooning yourself in cashmere, that beautiful sofa-changing throw, turning your bathroom into a five-star spa, or filling your home with beautiful scents, it’s the little details and the me-moments that count now. And, of course, these can be shared too; they make for great gifts.
Here are the best products to turn your house into a come-hither home, and fashion and beauty picks that are guaranteed to offer a little ‘omm improvement’ wherever you lay your head.
