The days may slowly be getting longer again, but they are also getting colder and snowier in many parts of the country. Although I've lived in cold climates for my whole life, this stark transition always seems to throw me off-balance. Each year, I make an effort to stick with the habits that help me make the most of winter weather: finding delicious new recipes to bake, adding a few new books to my reading list and dreaming up ways to makeover my home.
Yes, despite my best efforts to spend as much time outside as possible, I'm still inside for more hours of the day this time of year. That quickly inspires me to to look around and brainstorm home upgrades. In past years when we had fewer kids and less pandemic-era burnout, I've gone all out on renovating bathrooms or lobbying for us to redo floors. But, honestly, I don't know that I have the energy this year.
So, what's a girl to do when she wants a fresh space with minimal effort? Taking a cue from the Danish concept of hygge, I looked for a few simple product swaps that could make my home feel cozier. And, when it comes to snuggly soft blankets, pillows, loungewear and more, no company does it better than Sunday Citizen. Founded by a textile executive famed for creating the "Heavenly Bed," Sunday Citizen doubles down on comfort with unique fabric blends that are both soft and durable.
I first got my hands on a robe from Sunday Citizen a few months ago and immediately fell in love with the plush knit. Putting it on first thing in the morning is the little bit of added inspiration I need to emerge from my warm bed. Still, since I'm not sure I can get away with wearing the robe all day, I started looking for ways to incorporate that luxurious coziness throughout the rest of my home.
With three collections featuring fabrics like snug, double snug and premium bamboo, Sunday Citizen can help you make your living room, bedroom and even bathroom a little extra warm and inviting. Better yet, the covers and blankets are all machine washable, which is a major perk in my book.
