Room recipe: How to style your hanging chair for winter

Rug up your favourite spot to relax
Sue Stubbs

The best place to perch in summer can become a comfy retreat all year round.

Don’t neglect your outdoor areas in winter as a nook to withdraw and unwind. If you’ve fallen in love with a hanging chair as the ultimate escape for a little ‘me time’, create a special place to cocoon yourself through winter by layering it with snuggly textures, a handy side table and a serene outlook.

“For me a hanging chair is an instant invitation to curl up with a book and have some me time.”
