Weekend in the mountains

Snowy mountains. Don't let the frosty winter weather in the city let you get down. Find your home away from home in a cozy mountain cabin, ideal for recharging your batteries. Can you picture yourself posted up in front of the fireplace as snow falls outside? Ready for some luxury in the wilderness?

You want to hide under a thick throw, looking outside while staying warm, close to the open-fireplace. A cozy super chunky hand-knitted throw in a luxurious wool is just the perfect thing to comfort you. Or get in the craft mood and knit one over the weekend.

For those who don't want to stay in lounge-wear all weekend, hit the slopes at one of the nearby ski resorts. Wander into the nearby antique shops and find some old wooden skis to decorate your home with. Enjoying the outdoors under the roof of your covered porch with a warm glass of wine around the open fire before getting back inside.

What do you need more for a lazy long weekend than a comfortable sofa or daybed, a nice woolen throw to keep your legs warm, a cup of tea and a pile of magazines or books.

Is great to have a pile of throws laying around, just to grab one. They can add a cozy and colourful touch of decoration in the room when not used.

Weekend: time to have long breakfasts in the kitchen, or long evenings, telling stories around the table with family or friends. Country style kitchen but with a love for simplicity.

In the weekend house you don't need a lot, buy some pieces in nice materials, natural wood, plain ceramics, copper, linen tablecloths.
