I do not like winter. I just don’t. Nope. Give me a beach and hot summer sun year-round. Unfortunately for me I don’t actually live in those places so I have to make due. After the Christmas décor and lights are put away, all I am left with is cold wet weather that leaves my hair dry and frizzy. Winter for me is borderline hibernation, so it’s important that my “den” is perfect. If you haven’t already, you should have winterized your home. Make it cozy as possible.

Cozy Throws

When the temperature drops, staying warm and cozy is a top priority. This is the perfect time to pamper yourself with soft and comfortable throw. You can try cashmere, faux fur, or even velvet.

Gather Around the Fire

If you have a fireplace, try pulling your furniture pieces inward toward the center of the room. Creating a cozy gathering spot is perfect for winter entertaining. Plush fabrics and upholstery add warmth even without the roaring fire.

Plush Rugs for the Floors

Cold floors are great in summer and uncomfortable in winter. Area rugs not only keep your feet warm, but also add color and character to a room. Bare wooden floors or tile can be quite unforgiving as winter starts to set in.
