Add a layer of style and comfort to your bed with Volpes this winter

Add a layer of style and comfort to your bed with Volpes this winter

Warm, cosy blankets are a must-have for winter, and Volpes has a range of throws and blankets to choose from.

If you’re looking for something that’s light weight, choose the Casey Flannel throw with medallion print – it’s perfect for throwing over your knee on a chilly afternoon. The Chloe Embossed Flannel throw has a unique texture from the embossed design that resembles a cable knit. It’s also light weight, but still adds warmth and cosiness.

For something soft and luxurious, the silky Shimmer Soft throw is ideal and looks stunning on beds and couches alike. For something with a bit more glam factor, choose a Faux Fur throw to add texture and personality to your bedroom or lounge. For the ultimate luxe touch, the Elias velvet quilt is both beautiful and warm and features super trendy velvet on one side, and 100% cotton on the other side to snuggle under.

Woven throws such as the Demi, Camden & Caylin are perfect for those not so cold places, where a minimal covering is enough for an added bit of warmth or where you’d like to add a bit of texture and colour to a bed, arm chair or couch. The Cloud Sherpa blankets come in 4 different colours and features the unique sheep like fabric which is guaranteed to keep you warm when temperatures drop. The Emily blanket combines the look and feel of a knitted blanket on one side with the cosiness of the Sherpa fabric on the other side – a stylish way to add warmth to your home.

Winter top tip from Estel Grobler, Volpes Buyer ‘Add scatters and throws to your couch, arm chair and bed. Simply drape over the arm rest or along the back of a couch. Layer throws at the end of your bed, you can choose more than one, but be sure to add variety and always include a plain with a patterned design.  Incorporate patterned and textured scatters with floral designs for added interest.

Its time to READ competition

A wise man once quipped: Creativity is contagious. Pass it on. Albert Einstein certainly knew what he was speaking about, and when it comes to encouraging creativity and imagination in our youth, just think of the untold treasure, waiting to be discovered!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
