Snuggle up with a beautiful and soft bed

As the snow flies and temperatures drop, we in New Hampshire are reminded once again of the warmth of home. Aside from relaxing in an overstuffed chair by a roaring fire, few comforts match the feeling of a snug, well-made bed, piled high with pillows and perhaps topped with a comforting throw.The colorful bedding on the next pages features fabric and textures that are not only beautiful to look at and wonderful to touch, but also functional. Brian Gahan-owner of Somnia, an upscale bedding and accessories store in Portsmouth-says comfortable bedding has universal appeal, because “you always want a soft, warm nest” to sleep in.”There’s nothing better to me than an incredibly soft bed,” Gahan says. “The way your sheets and blankets feel is more important than the way they look.” All of this bedding, from the Garnet Hill fleece sheets to the Tourance throw, will make you feel all the better about feathering your own nest this winter.
