Finally, snow is here in New England and it feels like winter. Changing your decor will warm up your home for winter. Here are 4 simple and easy ways to add warmth to your interior.
Warm Up Your Home For Winter
1. Add textures
The look and feel of textured fabrics – wool, chenille, suede and velvet – add tremendous comfort and coziness to a room.
A throw tossed over the sofa will be ready to warm a chilly night. Keep several in a large basket so there is one for everyone. Add a decorative blanket at the foot of your bed for afternoon naps.
Hang a quilt or a rug on the wall. You will notice the difference in ambiance immediately. Adding fabrics with texture improves sound quality too.
2. Accessorize in warm colors
Colors of the sun – orange, yellow and red – are scientifically known to raise the temperature in a room. The 2015 Pantone color of the year, Marsala, is a warm color. Read more about Marsala here.
Use large pillows on the floor for extra seating and lounging by the fire.
3. Create conversation areas
Creating conversation areas is a no-cost way to establish a warm atmosphere.
Arrange your seating pieces (couch, love seat, chairs) into a U- or L-shape.
Moving your furniture away from the walls and into the center of the room will further add to the sense of coziness.
4. Use energy-efficient window coverings
Insulating shades not only raise the temperature in your room but can save you money on heating bills. Aside from being beautiful and stylish, saving money is my favorite part!
Shades should not be the only thing on your window. Adding drapes that are lined and interlined increase the energy efficiency of the window treatments.
These simple tips will make your home feel cozier and warmer, making winter months so much more enjoyable. Ahhh – there’s no place like home!
