Soften The Lighting

Soften The Lighting

Bright lights (especially fluorescent) make rooms feel chill and sterile. Add a bit of intimacy to your space with soft lighting and it will instantly feel warmer.

There’s no need to invest in new lighting for your home. Adding some soft lighting is as easy as stringing up some mood lights or covering an existing light with a tinted shade.

Decorate With Soothing Colors & Textiles

Decorate With Soothing Colors & Textiles

Why do log cabins feel so warm and cozy? It’s because textures and natural colors make us feel a sense of comfort. Adding some soothing colors and textile pieces is easy to do, this could be with juke baskets, fringe throw pillows, faux fur, or rustic wooden candle holders.

You don’t need much to liven up your space on cold days. Introducing something as simple as a piece of art, an acoustic guitar, or a rocking chair can make any room feel toastier.

Add Blankets & Rugs

Add Blankets & Rugs

We’re sure you don’t need us to tell you to cover up with a blanket when it’s cold, but blankets can even make you feel warmer when you’re not wrapped up in them. Fuzzy, woolly, or fluffy blankets can make rooms feel more snug and welcoming.

Rugs can have the same effect, especially if you have hard, reflective floors. Rugs will also help keep your feet warm and insulate your home.

Light Some Candles

Light Some Candles

Nothing warms the body and mind like relaxing by candlelight on a chilly evening. Even adding one candle to the mantle can bring a lot of warmth to a room.
