Winter will be here before you know it! The season can seem daunting to some, as visions of shoveling snow and cold temperatures immediately come to mind. However, there are some simple ways you can make your home a safe haven during the coldest months of the year.
Read on as we explore some of the most popular winter design trends that will help add a warm and cozy feel to your home.
On a cold winter’s night there’s no better place to be than in front of a cozy fireplace. An ornate fireplace can serve as the perfect focal point for a living room, adding ambiance and warmth. Electric models provide the same ambiance while not requiring the venting associated with traditional fireplaces. Fireplaces can even be placed outdoors in the form of a backyard fire pit.
Reclaimed Wood Elements
During the cold winter months rooms with wooden accents and furniture actually give off a warming effect. Consider adding a barnwood side table or even incorporate cedar log furniture to make your home feel like a warm and rustic winter cabin. If adding new furniture isn’t in your budget consider smaller wooden elements like photo frames crafted from reclaimed wood.
When the weather cools down you naturally want to wrap up in something cozy and warm. Incorporate textiles throughout your home including flannel sheets, wool throws, or even a classic handmade quilt. Simply draping a throw on your soft or putting a quilt on your bed can give a visual feeling of warmth.
We hope these ideas have inspired you to add some warmth to your home this winter. Want to add barnwood furniture to your home? Contact us to get started.
