As temperatures outside drop, it’s time to bring some warmth back into your home. Use these tips and tricks to learn the best ways to cozy up for winter.
Adding a sheepskin instantly brings warmth to any room in your home. Place a sheepskin rug beside your bed, a cozy greeting to feet on brisk winter mornings, or toss one over an ottoman or a chaise to provide a toasty spot to tuck chilly toes while reading or relaxing.
White as Snow
Collect a display of crisp white glassware to bring a hint of winter’s beauty into your home. Bright white dishware stands out against a black-painted hutch backed with pretty patterned wallpaper. Accents of silver scattered throughout the display echo the sparkle of freshly fallen snow.
Although wood floors create a sophisticated style statement year-round, you’ll need to cozy them up for the cold winter months. A fluffy area rug sets off this living room’s main seating area and adds warmth and texture underfoot. For a unique style statement, layer one rug on top of another to add more visual interest.
Make an existing rug even more cozy by layering a thinner, smaller rug on top of it. If it won’t damage the rug material, consider placing hook-and-loop squares on a couple of points on the smaller rug to help it stay in place and prevent tripping.
Layer in a few extra throw pillows for a quick winter style update. Playful patterns and bold orange hues stand out against dark wood furnishings and a creamy white sofa in this cozy living room. Choose accent pillows in colors and patterns that match your existing decor to ensure you don’t have to make any more decor adjustments.
