Prue shows us why a cosy and intimate reading nook is the perfect addition to any home. My idea of ‘ultimate comfort’ is... hair up, no makeup, in my sweat pants on the sofa with a glass of Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir. I welcome guests into my home with... love, wine and food - in that order. The cosiest room in my home is... my family room because I love my big soft charcoal grey modular suite and my whole family can fit around it comfortably. Three things I need for the perfect night in... is a good movie, great company and wine, of course. I am most relaxed when... I have completed everything I set outtodoforthedayandIcanput my feet up and clear the mind. On a rainy day, I like to... play board games with my husband and kids. We are all really competitive so it’s great fun. If I could take one piece of furniture with me to a new home, it would be... my white wicker rocking chair. I nursed both my children in that chair and read many a bedtime story. It has sentimental value. My must-have winter garment is... leather! I recently purchased some amazing drop-crotch leather pants and a leather jacket. Tips for creating a cosy and inviting space at home... • Incorporate texture and don’t be afraid to mix up your fabrics. Combine leather, hide, knits, and velvet within your cushions, throws and rugs. • Whether you’re choosing a sofa, ottoman or a statement chair, make sure it’s comfortable as well as looking great. • Choose colours that radiate warmth like tan, chocolate, black, burgundy, charcoals and navy. 7 Gawler Street, Port Noarlunga /soundofwhite What we learnt... A comfortable sofa or armchair you can really sink into is essential. Include a padded foot rest, fluffy floor rug and a woven throw for a chilly day. Choose soft, non- distracting colours to promote tranquility in the space. Add your own personal touches; a floor lamp, framed pictures, wall hangers, a mini bookcase and a sweet- smelling scent. COSY CORNER with Prue @ The Sound of White Every warm, welcoming home should have chunky throws and cushions, and a textured floor rug.
