Make Your Home Cozier This Winter

Winter is as good a time as any to redecorate your home, and the right visual elements will have your interiors looking chic, warm, inviting and cozy, even in the coldest months.

Keep colors simple: Paint is perhaps the best starting point for redecorating your home and you should begin with a neutral color like white, beige or very light blue or green. Keeping the colors simple gives you a lot of freedom to play with the rest of the elements.Family Room (Galleria New Home), Clarkston, Michigan | Robert R. Jones Homes

Area rugs: Area rugs offer a very simple way to add dramatic changes to any room. Be sure to choose these in warm colors or a combination of warm colors to add to the coziness.

Use more candles: Accessories add the final, but all important touches to your interiors for winter. Candles, for example, are particularly dramatic pieces in winter because they suggest light and warmth – two things that Mother Nature doesn’t provide this time of the year.

Bring in some warmth: Decorating in winter is all about giving extra comfort and warmth to your interiors, especially when it is cold and harsh outside. Stock up on items like plush throws, thick quilts and large pillows. Place them on your sofas and couches.

Make nature welcome in your interior decoration: You can bring in plants with brightly colored flowers and mild fragrances inside your home. It will add color in your home while helping it smell sweet all the time. Other natural elements like pine cones and dried branches can be used to create interesting displays on a side table or the fireplace mantel. Pebbles and stones can be arranged artistically to increase the charm of your living space.Stairway (Galleria New Home), Clarkston, Michigan | Robert R. Jones Homes

Use traditional furniture for glamour: Add warmth to your interiors by breaking the straight lines of contemporary furniture with some more traditional pieces. The curves of the traditional pieces add a “glam” factor to a space when used as a focal point.

Use furniture with raw unfinished looks: Use pieces which reflect the outside on the inside. By using accessories and furniture with raw and unfinished looks, we bring a bit of the nature from the outside, into our homes.

These are some ways in which you can turn a cold, bleak winter into one filled with warmth and joy. Keeping it simple, yet elegant, will add to the charm of your home and make it a haven of comfort and relaxation.
