Create a cozy winter wonderland in your living room this season to create a warm and enjoyable living space as freezing temperatures rear their ugly heads. It’s that time of year to take down all of the spring and summer decorations and replace them with winter-themed designs. Nothing says snuggling up on a cold winter day like a fireplace, blanket and ski photographs on display in the room.
Consider repainting your walls with warmer colors like red or yellow to create a warmer atmosphere than your neutral colored walls. Replacing your sheer window treatments with heavier curtains or draperies is another simple way to add warmth to a room.
You may want to purchase an area rug for your wood or tile floor which will provide warmth and comfort for your freezing toes. A simple bookcase with mittens, wool hats and scarves displayed are a perfect way to personalize your living space with a winter flair.
Finally, make use of your fireplace. Nothing beats the smell of wood burning in the winter and the heat that a wood-burning or an electric fireplace gives off. Plus, it’s a less-expensive way to heat your house!
