There’s not much I love more than good quality linen, duvet covers, sheets and throws. There’s just something quite indulgent about crisp bed sheets or sitting under a soft blanket with a hot cup of tea and a good book, especially on a cold winter’s night.

And I love the beautiful touch a throw can add to a room, draped over a chair or layered at the bottom of a bed, perfect for those icy-cold nights when a little bit of extra warmth goes a long way!

I walked into Volpes at Canal Walk a few weeks ago and was so impressed with their range of quilts, linen, towels and throws. (they even do curtains and pillows!) After a good hour, we eventually settled on a gorgeous grey reversible blanket (featured here) which we loved for my parent’s holiday house in Robertson, ideal for the cozy weekends and holidays we spend there over the winter months. And the colour is so versatile and great for mixing it up with other colours and textures.
