As soon as your Christmas decorations come down your house can feel cold and empty. The space where your Christmas tree previously shone with light and colour now seems bare. Christmas decorations are a great way to make your home feel cosy and inviting during the coldest months, but once they go you have a dilemma. The wind is still howling, and the sky is full of snow.
There are, however, many things you can do to make your home feel cosy during this period. Throws and cushions can give your home that extra warmth it so desperately needs. You would be surprised just how much difference a throw can make. Tartans and checks in warm colours can create warmth that cannot be attained unless you are prepared to redecorate. By including warm colours, oranges, reds and dark greens, to your home you can create a completely different ambience.
Even if you just add a throw to your sofa you can completely change the look of your living room. There is something about blankets and throws casually draped over seating that makes you want to slump down in front of the television and keep warm.
This winter making your home feel warm and inviting can mean the difference between a miserable winter and a happy, cosy few months. As soon as spring arrives you can strip back the throws and cushions to reveal a light filled house, ready for summer dinner parties and the warmer weather.
Using throws and cushions is a simple and easy way to make your home feel comfortable and cosy. It is incredibly easy and will help you get through the most miserable months. All you need now is a box of chocolates, a glass of wine and a good film and your winter will fly by.
