While most countries experience freezing conditions at this time of the year, it can be the perfect time to get out accessories that can help add the right touch of warmth to your home. While summers are usually timed for the outdoors, there is nothing like adding touches of warmth to your home decor when you are stuck indoors.
Warm accessories for your living room
There can be several ways you can add touches of warmth to your living room. If you have old, colorful shawls or blankets, you could use them as throws on your living room sofas. That helps to make these surfaces warm; especially if you have leather based upholstery that can make such surfaces feel very cold to sit on during winter conditions. The same works for the floor. If you have open floor spaces, try covering them up with colorful and warm carpet rugs. Fabric or piled rugs feel soft under the feet and also help to make the rooms warmer in winter season.
Other ways to add warmth to your living room
Besides throws on sofas and lounge chairs and rugs on the floor, consider having floor or table lamps added to the corners or tables. Such lamps create a warm glow and this in turn leads to the feeling of warmth in any living space as opposed to a centralized lighting system. Even if you have concealed lighting on your walls, you might decide to switch them off and use floor or table lamps to create a warm lighting effect during the winter months. If you have isolated heaters for your rooms, having fabric based upholstery and accessories like floor kids rugs will help to retain the warmth in your rooms. Use colorful rugs and throws of piled fabrics or old woolen and colorful shawls as drapes over chairs and other areas. These are inexpensive ways you could liven up your home living spaces and add a feeling of warmth during the cold winter months.
