A reading corner is good for any time of year but is particularly nice in the winter when you’re in hibernation mode. It can be as simple as taking an unused chair from another part of the house and putting it next to a desk or bookshelf. Adding soft furnishings to the area will make it look even more inviting.

3. Getting the light right

Fairy lights and lamps can make a romantic setting and with the addition of carefully placed textiles and your own accessories it can be a room where cosy-ness is the priority.
