What’s your definition of cosy?
Whether it’s the satisfaction that comes from devouring a hearty bowl of soup served with crusty bread (laden with butter, of course), the feel of a soft scarf against your neck or the flicker of a candle after the sun goes down, you’ll find exactly what you need to get cosy this winter at Enex.
There are plenty of ways to create a cosy atmosphere at home that don’t involve drawing the curtains and leaving the heater on 24/7.
One of the easiest and most effective methods to transform a space from sparse to snug is with candles.
A must-visit boutique for anyone who covets candles, Generics is home to Perth’s most extensive range of vegan candles, each hand poured and set with wooden wicks that crackle and burn for hours (the next best thing to having a log fire in your lounge!).
Among the cosiest concoctions in their range, the new Smokey Joe blend combines masculine citrus tones, elemi oil and sweet cinnamon.
After something more feminine? Try Sweet Apple Pie – the inviting aroma of green apple and cinnamon will ignite your senses. Light the wick and let the fruity fragrance waft through the air as you snuggle into the couch under a woven mohair throw from Gorman.
Hearty, hot and healthy, there are few dishes that top soup when it comes to cultivating a feeling of cosiness from the inside out.
If you’re bored of traditional options such as minestrone or pea and ham, don’t fret because Slurp Soup & Salad Bar and Sumo Salad are keeping things fresh with new takes on old classics.
Just in time for the coldest part of winter, Slurp Soup & Salad Bar has added a filling and flavoursome Thai Green Chicken soup to their menu. Hand made from scratch with green curry paste, succulent chicken thighs, coconut milk, potatoes and pumpkin, this gluten-free and dairy-free delight has just the right amount of kick to send the winter blues packing.
Over at Sumo Salad, head chef Kim Wiggins has taken the hard work out of getting your daily dose of veggies with an array of nutrient-packed soups to help boost your immunity and keep the doctor away over cold and flu season. Highlights include the Kale, Quinoa & Vege soup which is loaded with pumpkin, tomato, onion, chilli, cumin, turmeric, paprika and coriander.
The idea that you lose most of your body heat via your head is an old wives tale but don’t let that stop you from embracing the beanie trend this winter.
Keep your noggin’ toasty and look super cute doing it with Decjuba’s range of double pom pom beanies.
Or, if double pom poms are a bit too extra for your personal style, venture to Pigeonhole for understated unisex knits.
The closest you can come to wearing a blanket outside of the house without raising eyebrows, a chunky, oversized scarf is another great investment piece during winter. Head to Gorman for snuggly scarves that range from print heavy to paired back.
