''I feel like winter is all about rustic cosiness, especially when it comes to your home and interiors. Nothing says Christmas like a roaring fire, layers of cosy throws and your hands being wrapped around a hot chocolate. Year after year we see the reincarnation of the winter chalet lodge trend where some embrace it in a luxurious chic way, and others opt for a more rugged finish. This trend is all about layers of chunky knits, brushed fabrics and faux furs in natural colour-ways to compliment all the wood used throughout furniture, flooring, ceilings and walls. Using deep colours such as burgundy, aubergine, mustards and navy all give a gentle nod to a deep, moody lodge feel. Our winter collection compliments this trend magically so I have picked out my favourite products which I think are the perfect pieces everyone needs for creating their very own winter lodge.''

''When it comes to the bedroom, your choice of bedding can make or break this trend. Brushed cotton is the idyllic choice here to give a super cosy and more natural finish as opposed to a purer, crisp cotton finish.''

''Our Fraser bedding is available in two warming colourways, mulberry and blue, with green and red checks running through to welcome Christmas. With its lighter reversible design, you can give your room an uplift every other week for a contemporary finish.''

''To compliment this perfectly, our Dakota faux fur cushions and throws coordinate with the bedding perfectly to add an extra layer of texture, warmth and comfort.''

''The centre of every living room should be based around the fire place. This focal point illuminates the room with its calm and warmth and can be complimented with a lovely rug for extra comfort. Let the Scottish highland landscapes inspire your choice of colours, patterns and fabrics by using plaid cushions and upholstered chairs to circle around the fire.''

''Our Inverness silver curtains in silver and cream tartan is a modern take on a classic tartan design and will give a rustic yet effortless finish to your living space. The coordinating cushion sits beautifully in the same room as the curtains when scattered with a mix of other patterned cushions.''

''Using the right accessories can give your home just a sprinkling of this trend if chosen correctly. There are many of our scatter cushions I adore, however to compliment this look specifically, I just love our Highland stag cushion, our whisper mohair throw and Kendal spice cushion.''

''The Highland stag cushion features three side by side stags in-filled with coordinating tartan to the reverse fabric and piped edges. This comes in both red with cream and silver with grey and the stag silhouette evokes true winter forest charm. This would look amazing with a wooden stag bust on the wall.''

''Our Kendal charcoal cushion has a modern check with a slub-like texture which I love for adding in another colour and alternative texture amongst your current scatter cushions.''
