With snow and ice buffeting much of the country at present, it’s natural that many of us are opting to stay indoors where it’s warm and dry. However, that doesn’t mean you have to resort to watching hours of mindless TV or breaking out a jigsaw puzzle to keep yourself entertained. If you want to practice a little self-improvement while the weather is chilly, consider spending a day curled up in bed reading a good book. At Pure Parima, we’re passionate about creating bedrooms that combine comfort and luxury. Here are some of our top tips for enjoying the perfect reading day this winter no matter how low the temperature drops outside.
Egyptian Cotton Sheets
If your plan is to spend the day snuggled up in bed reading, then it’s only natural to invest in a set of cozy sheets. After all, you aren’t likely to get much reading done if you’re constantly tossing and turning to find a better position. For the ultimate in satiny soft comfort, it’s hard to beat our Hira Sheet Set. Boasting 100 percent certified Egyptian cotton and a thread count of 400, this luxurious collection includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two coordinating pillowcases. The sateen weave will keep you warm while the contemporary accent diamond embroidery is sure to delight your senses. Choose from traditional sheet colors like White and Ivory or go outside the box with Spa, Icy Blue, or Charcoal.
Cozy Coverlet Set
When it comes to staying comfortable for those winter reading sessions, a blanket is an absolute must. Luckily, our Quilted Coverlet is perfect for snuggling up with a good book. This delightful set is made from 100 percent Giza Egyptian cotton, so it will keep you warm without causing you to overheat. In fact, the breathability of Egyptian cotton means you don’t ever have to worry about winding up soaked in sweat while you’re lying in bed. Additionally, our coverlet set is beloved for its style, with shoppers praising the petite diamond reversible coverlet and coordinating shams. Rest your head on the quilted side or opt for the ultra silk sateen pillow back. Sophisticated yet accessible, this set comes in traditional colors as well as less common options like Linen, Soft Peach, and Midnight.
Reading in bed on a cold day is one of life’s simple joys. However, your pleasure is bound to turn to pain if you don’t have the proper back support while turning the pages. That’s where Pure Parima’s Hira Decorative Lumbar Pillow comes in. Crafted from extra-long, hand-picked Egyptian cotton fibers, this piece is at once functional and attractive. Prop it behind your back while reading in bed or use it on the sofa while curling up in front of your favorite Netflix show. This luxurious piece comes in all our most popular hues, including White, Ivory, Tan, Soft Peach, and Midnight. Note that the pillow includes a hidden zipper for ease of use with flap enclosure.
A Warm and Tasty Treat
Whether you’re reading a popular page-turner or a much-loved classic, you’ll likely enjoy the experience more if you have some tasty snacks on hand. On winter days, it’s hard to beat the comfort of a cup of cocoa. We recommend indulging yourself by making your hot chocolate with milk instead of water. Drop in a few mini marshmallows and top the whole thing off with a spray of whipped cream. Not a cocoa lover? There’s nothing wrong with brewing up a strong cup of tea or coffee to luxuriate over in bed. Complete your snack with a few homemade cookies or a slice of chocolate cake from your favorite bakery.

Of course, no reading day is complete without the most important item: a good book. If you’re struggling to find something to read, we recommend dropping by your local library. Don’t feel like leaving the house? Many cities feature online lending options, so books will be sent to your tablet when they become available. You can also save money by visiting a used bookshop or borrowing something intriguing from a friend. As a bonus, sharing books with buddies ensures you’ll both have something to chat about the next time you hang out together.
