Looking to make your home warm and cosy this winter?
Ballarat and the surrounding region have a wide variety of retailers offering everything you need to create an inviting haven as you snuggle from the cold.
Here are some ideas to get you started…
Set the mood with the soft flickering light of a hand-poured candle from The Essential Candle Co or Sovereign Hill. Invoke the senses with some rich and luxurious scents using diffused essential oils or soy wax melts from Melting Point Candle Co.
For the perfect winter scent think the warming notes of vanilla, amber, cinnamon, bergamot, cedar and chai.
Create that cosy den feel by adding softness and texture. Snuggle under blankets and throws from Creswick Woolen Mills or Branberry as you sink back into cushions with a local flair from Taylor & Stirling. Complete your perfect winter outfit with a jumper from Such n Such, and while you’re there why not pick up a new faux plant.

It’s always nice to light the fire for the warmth and the atmosphere but what if you don’t have one inside? Consider a custom designed outdoor firepit from PO Box Designs. Rug up, gather your loved ones and toast some marshmallows around the glow of the fire.
There’s nothing like walking into a room and being mesmerised by beautiful artwork on a wall. What often makes the experience more memorable is the moment you learn the artwork has been created by a local artist.
Add a piece of art by one of Ballarat’s talented artists Steph Wallace, Susan Nethercote or Katherine Scott to your home this winter.
