Wonderful Ways to Warm Up Your Home As The Temps Drop!

When winter weather brings frigid temps and snowy days, it’s a perfect time to appreciate the comfiness of your beautiful new home. But warmth doesn’t stop with insulation and thermostats. You can cozy up your décor with these helpful tips!

  1. Lights are an obvious way to counteract the dark days of winter – whether it’s a chandelier with tons of bulbs, candles in the windows, or dramatic landscaping lights outside.
  2. Pops of bright colors (cheery reds, springy greens, juicy oranges) can help chase the winter blahs away. Think pillows, throws or maybe an accent wall!
  3. Those Scandinavians are on to something! White doesn’t need to be a cool color… especially when paired with light woods and other rustic accents like brick or stone!
  4. Dress your home in layers! Velvety throw pillows & fuzzy blankets, fluffy rugs and glowing candles add tons of warmth.
  5. Metallics like rose gold, copper and bronze help add the impression of warmth, especially if paired with pastels or earth tones.
  6. Natural wood floors and paneled walls create instant coziness. And natural accents, like potted plants, evergreens, pine cones and twigs, add warmth and a bit of the outdoors.
  7. Textures are toasty. Look for knitted blankets, animal skin rugs, woven baskets, and squishy pillows.
  8. Leather accents - a chair or an ottoman - add so much warmth to a room. Especially if tucked into a reading nook or quiet corner.
