And there's lots to love about winter, from cosy fires, tasty hot chocolates and ugg boots to rich coloured jumpers, flushed faces and pots of soup - inspiration is everywhere, adding a certain sense of rustic heartiness to your home, your wardrobe and your dinner table.
So I thought I'd start with some of my favourite winter books. Hope it inspires you to add a little winter cheer. Happy first of July!

But if one wasn't at home during the winter months, then certainly there are some fine alternatives to be found in this little tome HIP HOTELS SKI.
