When winter comes, it's nice to make your home feel warm and cozy inside. Turning up the heat is one way to increase comfort, but there's more to it than that. Decorating with touches of warm and cozy decor can help make your home a more enjoyable place to spend time.
Extra Pillows and Blankets
Buy some extra throw pillows and blankets for your couch and bed. Piling up the pillows makes your furniture look and feel cozier on those long winter nights. When shopping for throw pillows, look for blankets made of extra soft materials. Use your extra pillows and blankets on movie nights and during evenings when you're curled up in bed with a book. You'll love spending time inside this winter!
Candles, Candles, Candles
Candles give the house a warm and cheerful glow. Some people don't like to light real candles because of fire concerns. You can bypass this problem by using battery-powered candles instead. Light up your candles before meals and on quiet nights with friends.
Mantel decorations direct attention to your fireplace, which contributes to the warm glow in your apartment. Sometimes the simplest mantel decorations are the best. For example, place a mirror on the wall over your fireplace. The mirror will bounce light around the room, including light from your candles. Mirrors also help lighten your apartment at a time of year when the sun goes down early.
White lights aren't just for Christmas. String white lights over your fireplace or across your coffee table, or let them dangle beautifully over your bed.
Not only do white lights help you see in your apartment at night, but they also add a sense of magic to the place where you live. Put your white lights on timers so they'll be on when you come home at night. You'll love the way they make you feel when you walk in the door!
