On the 3rd day of Christmas, my true love gave me the gift of rich textures and warm colours from Home Address to keep me cosy through the winter.

Founder of online home goods shop Home Address, Celine Lynch shares her top tips on giving presents that make a cosy, winter home.

“For me, it’s about creating a space that you don’t want to move from. In colder months and with less daylight, that means surrounding yourself with rich textures and warm colours that work well in artificial light.  These days with central heating and fires, our houses can actually be warmer inside than they are for the rest of the year. It’s, therefore, not so much about the weight of the fabrics, as the perception that they create. It’s worth having a few lightweight throws around, so that you can still snuggle up without feeling too hot. And the soft plushness of velvet cushions add that extra layer of decadent luxury.”
