For a hardy few, winter is a time of bracing stimulation, with its invitation to celebrate the new season with skiing or snowboarding trips, ice-skating and even fantasies of a White Christmas and more. For others, it’s a time of ever-decreasing circles. Life shrinks from outdoors to indoors, the cold is a constant oppressive presence, and the reduced sunlight seems to drain your natural optimism.
If you belong to the latter camp, then don’t despair: there is always the consolation that spring will eventually arrive and, until then, maybe you just need to tailor your home to provide the warm and comforting retreat that you need. And don’t let anyone tell you that you’re running away. Oh no, you’re not running anywhere – you’re retreating to your nest. Let us help you plan your very own perfect winter retreat.
