Home should be where the heart is, but your left-from-uni flat-packed furniture and lava lamps are making your humble abode hard to love. And with the early arrival of winter-like weather, it’s feeling less than cosy.
Cheer it up with selections from online boutique Natural History. Curated by Sarah Lidwell-Durnin, the whimsical range will make you happy to stay in.
Prepare to hibernate under Belgian linen sheets and gorgeously soft duvet covers. Don’t blame us if you can’t get out of bed once you’re underneath a cashmere blanket. Liven up your sofa for X Factor evenings with quirky cushions made from antique German grain sacks or linen ones with 18th-century illustrations of coral, seaweed and flowers in muted colours. Laboratory glassware holding a single flower, like what’s pictured above, will brighten any corner. And a rustic linen tablecloth will remind you that though it’s grey now, spring is really only … well, anyway.
