We're not sad about waving goodbye to summer as it means we get to enjoy lazy autumn weekends, all snuggled up in our wonderful beds. But how can we make them just that bit more cosy? 

Naturally, the summer duvet will be replaced with something more substantial and the electric blanket might even go back on, but there must be lots of other things that we can do to really make our bedroom the cosiest place on earth, right? 

Well, there are! We took a look at what interior designers and home furnishing experts have been doing to make clients' beds that bit more snuggly and comfortable and we've pulled together a lovely list of suggestions for you. 

We're feeling snug as bugs in rugs right now, so why not come and join us?
