What’s on your winter wish list?

From cosy adventures and Christmas in July to the perfect winter textiles, our team shares their cool-season dreams.

Natural dyed linen sheet set from Dazed but Amazed

“Because I really need more reasons to stay in bed a little longer on these cold winter mornings (!!) I’m splurging on some new bed linen from the beautiful hand-dyed range of linen sheets and duvets by Dazed but Amazed. As well as being natural and ethical (my essentials these days!), this full sheet set is in my all-time favourite colour combo — cinnamon, caramel and blush hues. Earthy, organic, and made with love. Sweet dreams!” Natalie, Editor

Christmas Village at The Rocks, Sydney for Bastille-Day

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas… in July! Sydney will soon be hosting a charming French-style Christmas market for Bastille Festival and I’m so tempted to book a weekend away. French yuletide treats, (fake) snow, twinkling fairy-lights and a secret ginger beer bar — need I say more?” Emily, Features Writer

House of Heras Designer Rugs
House of Heras for Designer Rugs

“The perfect rug for our main living area: spanning our entry and in front of the fireplace. It needs to be a showstopper, yet still practical enough for two kids and a toy poodle (inside dog, quite partial to the fireplace in winter). It has eluded me for some time…” Tanya, Feature writer

“A few days in country Victoria staying with some good friends. Cold weather jumpers, coats and scarves, red wine by the fire and locally sourced fresh food. So different from our warmer winter weather.” Rhonda, Editor in Chief

Kantha cushion


“Cushions and a throw rug for our bedroom. The base colours are dark-grey carpet, light-grey bed with a plain linen bed cover and white walls — so I’m looking for some colour (plum, mauve and even teal) to add!” Nikki, Online Manager

Jetmaster Fireplaces
Scandia log storage from Bunnings

“Embracing the delicious chills of Applethorpe and Stanthorpe with a local short break (perfect excuse for a pair of Hunter wellies).” I’d also love a custom outdoor fireplace — but would happily settle for more stylish storage to house our mountain of chimenea logs.” Nicole, Features Writer
