With colder temperatures outside we find ourselves rushing home more quickly to the comfort and warmth that awaits us. Here are a few quick ways to create your own sanctuary that will feel cozy even on the chilliest of days:
Use soft plush textures to create a cozy atmosphere. Fabrics like velvet and wool inherently have a natural warmth that will feel luxurious on a cold day. Velvet pillows are an excellent way to make you living room inviting, while faux fur items, like an ottoman, will add texture to your room.
Warm colours can be a powerful tool in creating atmosphere. Tones like pink, orange and red automatically generate a bit of heat.
Decorate your dining table with lots of candles to create the ambiance of warmth, and some literal heat!
If you live in a condo, try flipping on the fireplace channel for a great mood setting effect.
Add pictures of family and friends to bring an emotionally warm and homey feeling to the room.
Whether you’re relaxing or entertaining, these ideas will create a warm and inviting environment, year round.
