Here in the UK we never seem to get a full-blown winter. Its gets cold and icy with the odd snowy shower if we are lucky, if the snow does settle it turns to slush in no time. With this in mind Julian Charles have asked us to think about where our dream winter destination would be. As a family we love the sun and beach holidays but sometimes it is nice to embrace the snow and winter. We can wrap up warm and enjoy the short winter days and snuggle up at night in front of the open log fire.
Our dream destination to enjoy the winter months would be Austria. A log cabin would be the ultimate. When I was 6 years old we went to Lapland and stayed in a log cabin and to this day I can still remember the gorgeous smell of walking in to the open fire smell. After a cold day playing out all day coming home to this was amazing.
I would love the log cabin to be decorated all wintry but cosy at the same time. Starting off with some beautiful bedding that just looks so cosy to snuggle under at night-time with the snow falling all around outside. Also in the bedroom I would add a lovely wintry smelling reed diffuser, I am obsessed with these at the moment and they smell amazing for so long.
An absolute must would have to be these faux fur throws to wrap up inside together. Sitting as a family on the sofa watching a wintry movie together under these faux fur blankets and matching cushions sound like the best idea for a cold snowy day. Maybe with a cup of hot blackcurrant or lemon and maybe snacking on popcorn.
Whilst it would be amazing to just sit watching films all day or reading a good book that wouldn’t be practical with the children. We would need lots of family games to play together which I feel is a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
