Winter weather has arrived! While it may be cold and snowing outside, make sure to keep the inside of your home inviting and full of warmth by following a few of these design tips from our experts:
Accessories are an affordable and easy way to transition your home each season. In the winter, add layers of textiles to create an instant feeling of warmth. In the living room, you may want to consider adding a plush rug and additional pillows on the sofa. In the bedroom, it is a good idea to enhance your current bedding with additional knitted throws for those chilly winter nights.
Colors evoke feelings and emotions. Warm colors are hues of red, orange and yellow or a combination of any of the three. These colors make us think of sunlight and heat, which makes them key in transforming your home for the winter months. Try adding pops of these colors throughout your home in your artwork, rugs, pillows and other accessories.
Lighting is the quickest way to add ambiance to any room. During the day, open curtains and blinds to maximize natural lighting. In the evening, lighting candles or making a fire in the fireplace will instantly add physical warmth and create a comfortable and relaxing emotional environment.
