As the temperature outside drops, it’s time to bring some warmth back into your home. Try these tips and tricks to warm up your dwellings.
Similar to winter fashion, winter decorating is all about layering on the fabrics. Cover the chairs with simple slipcovers to cozy up the dining room for this season. Slip covered chairs add warmth and style to a neutral dining room and can be easily taken off for a quick cleaning after a family dinner or gathering with friends.
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 a cozy living room. Choose accent pillows in colors and patterns that match the existing decor to ensure no more decor adjustments.
Give the bedroom a quick style update and prepare it for the season by layering in textured bedding, throws, and pillows. A luxurious cashmere throw and soft velvet bed pillows turn this bedroom into a cozy refuge from those harsh winter winds. Although wood floors create a sophisticated style statement year-round, cozy them up for the cold winter months. A fluffy area rug sets adds warmth and texture underfoot. For a unique style statement, layer one rug on top of another to add more visual interest.
WINDOW WARM UP
Block out chilly winter drafts by layering on window treatments. Thick, floral draperies add volume to pattern Roman shades in this pretty bedroom nook. Replace the thick curtains with sheer draperies during warmer months, or simply remove the extra treatments altogether until temperatures plunge again.
