Make your home cozy, warm and happy this winter. The first inclination that winter is upon us are the darker days and cool, crisp mornings. Pick a few rooms in your home to refresh with some wintery decor. Here are some of our suggestions:
To make your living room homey and inviting

Have blankets easily at hand by your couch or lounge chairs.
Make your fireplace a focal point.

Make your home feel cozy by mixing up textures
Add natural elements for contrast and texture
Mix wood accents with natural elements to make your space feel warm and cozy
Luxurious textiles and jewel tones can transform a space
Use throw pillows and blankets with in-season textures

In addition use fall colored cushions, dimmed lights, and lit up fireplace
Incorporate cozy colors and channel all of your senses
Layer natural textured baskets and update vases with cuttings of eucalyptus or other large-scale green branches

Since we’re spending more time in our homes, it’s important to fall in love with our rooms all over again, and who doesn’t love a candlelit space? Stacked on top of books or nestled in a warm and fuzzy blanket, lighting candles in your home will make your home feel cozier and like you’re on holiday.
