We hate to break it to you, but the end of winter isn't in sight. If you live in a cold climate (which seems to be the majority of the country lately), you know that this January has been particularly tough. Often, the snow is so heavy that it forces you to hibernate inside of your home. Don't get down about the cold weather when you can warm up your home with these interior design tips.
- Layers of blankets: "A chunky throw is a must have when creating any winter nest and an open-weave is as cozy and warm as your favorite wool sweater," writes Jen Wallace of Ecosalon.com. The layered look is in right now, both in terms of home décor and fashion. Pile matching blankets on your living room sofa for a cozy feel.
- Warm throw rugs: What's better than curling up to a fire with hot cocoa? A throw rug can provide comfort for those long winter nights when you're roasting chestnuts and marshmallows or simply listening to the crackling of the fire. Look for a throw rug that matches your curtains and drapes to create unity in your living room.
- Window coverings: Window fashions made from thicker materials can help your home retain heat during the cold winter nights. Not only are these fixtures stylish, they are also quite practical and can even save you money in the long run by cutting heating costs.
