Prepare your home for winter

Winter is already getting comfortable outside and it’s not pleasant inside either. Our home is not ready yet for the cold season and it’s time to do something about it. Here are some tips that can help you turn your home into a winter retreat.

First of all, since the living room is the area where people usually spend most of their time, it would be a good idea to warm up that particular room. If you have a fireplace this would be a good time to use it. If not, you can always purchase one. These days, fireplaces come in all shapes and sizes and area very easy to use and move around. And something that can be applied to the whole house, not just the living room: get rid of the summer accessories. You can replace them with cozy pillows, furry rugs and other similar items.

As for the colors, the bright and happy tones that once helped us enjoy summer even more now have to go. You can replace them with more neutral colors, such as brown or grey. And if you want to create some contrast, you can add some metallic touches. These are just suggestions. Every home has its own personality so it’s only natural to have its own décor. Find the options that better suit your home and work with those.{pics from flickr}
