Cold, rainy winter days have officially arrived, and although sometimes dreary, this winter weather means it's time to get warm and snuggle up inside! We've rounded up a range of items from city centre stores to get your spaces ready for lazy days and cosy nights. 

Le Creuset

Signature Cast Iron Round Casserole Dish, $510 | Smith & Caughey's

Bring a sense of calm and peace to your home with Aesop's essential oil burner. Made of solid brass, this piece is stunning in its design and was created specifically for Aesop by Studio Henry Wilson.
