Here are some cold weather comforts:

If you must be stuck at home due to sub-zero temperatures, you’ll find it all so much more bearable with this gorgeous, soft Rustic Linen Blanket from Coyunchi, created with organic cotton and bound in ivory flannel. The rounded corners and yarn-dyed stripes render it a distinctive keepsake for your bedroom, and it can be enjoyed year round and easily paired with other bedding. The linen is from flax grown in France and Belgium, and the organic cotton sourced in India. This is a cozy and breathable blanket, and truly a work of art. Find it at http://www.urbangreenfurniture.com, along with other green treasures. UrbanGreen is a real wood furniture brand (with bedding and decorative pillows too), based in the Brooklyn Army Terminal with a shop on the Upper East Side as well.

Coffee is a cold weather comfort, and Remington’s iCoffee Machine uses steam to brew the perfect cup, full of flavor. Amazingly, the machine also plays Mozart when it starts and finishes — how is that for a bell & whistle? It’s large enough to serve a party, yet also makes balanced brews for one. This innovative steaming process removes the bitter and acidic aftertaste sometimes found in coffee, and delivers a smooth flavor. Coffee lovers can rejoice in this new extraction method, and find the iCoffee at http://www.bloomingdales.com and http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com.

Carved Solutions ushers in old-fashioned eco-luxury craftsmanship and quality into your abode with hand-carved, monogrammed soaps from Vermont. Let them adorn your bath and boudoir, and consider them for Valentine’s Day and birthdays, as well as hostess gifts. They’re on Oprah’s list of favorite things, so you know you’ll probably love them. Read more at http://www.carvedsolutions.com, where you’ll also find aromatherapy candles and jewelry.
