Stay warm this winter

As the cold air creeps in and winter coats become a necessity being cozy is what we are all striving for. We have some great ways to add comfort and warmth to your home this Holiday Season. With the recent snowfall, it is evident that the blankets and hot chocolate have made their debut this past weekend! Here is your guide to staying warm during this cold spell.

  1. Layer up Rugs

We layer our sweaters and blankets during the cold season so why not layer up the rugs as well! Whether you have hardwood, laminate, or tile, layering up on rugs is a great way to keep your feet cozy as well as adding great texture, color, and warmth to any room.



Bring on the Blankets

Adding blankets to any room will make it feel cozy and warm. Add a wicker basket to the corner of your couch in your family room with multiple blankets and your guests instantly have a way to cozy up while they are over for a cup of hot cocoa over this Holiday Season!



Add a Reading Corner

Do you have that corner in your home that you can’t figure what to use it for? We’ve got you covered! Add a big comfy chair, a table and a lamp and voila you’ve got yourself a nice reading corner. Cozy up in the morning with a nice cup of coffee, bring over your favorite book and you may have your new favorite spot in the house!


Try Dark Colours

Accent walls are a great way to add to a room. Try dark charcoal or dark brown as an accent wall behind your bed in your room and instantly add a cozy feeling. Just make sure you use lighter fixtures such as white end tables or a light grey headboard so it doesn’t make the room feel too dark.


Start your Fire!

This is one that people tend to forget… You add all the cozy fixtures in your home such as blankets, throw pillows, and rugs but you forget that simply lighting the fire will instantly make your home feel cozy and add warmth on those cold winter days. If you don’t have a fireplace, lighting a Holiday scented candle will do the trick!
