A home is your own private place to relax, so it should be cosy, inviting and tranquil. It is increasingly popular to create or decorate your own home, personalising it to your own style, helping you enjoy and relax more in your home. Whether you’re relaxing or entertaining, these cosy decorating ideas will create a warm and inviting home all year-round.
1. Pile Up Pillows
Paired with a warm blanket, pillows become snuggle buddies during on-the-sofa homework help or bill paying. Look for pillows with a lot of texture. Then pile them on the sofa and think about investing in or making larger ones for the floor.
2. Carve Out a Reading Nook
Fall is the time to pull out your favourite tones or find a new favourite and lose yourself for hours in a good book. Pick a well-lit corner of your home, either with natural lighting or a lamp, and arrange a comfy armchair in it. Place a table nearby, stacked with your favourite books and reading lists. If you read on a tablet, consider a spot near an outlet for easy charging.
3. Place a Rug
Nothing cries the pending arrival of winter quite like a cold floor on bare feet. Fend off icy toes by placing area rugs in well-toured spots in the home. Or layer area rugs for even more cosiness.
4. Hang Heavier Curtains
Heavy drapes keep out drafts and lend a sense of lavishness to the room, especially if you let them pool an inch or so on the ground. Switch out summer sheers for pattern drapes with a heavier hand.
5. Seasonal Patterns
Employ cosy patterns such as plaid, herringbone, and tweed, in small doses. Look for patterns that work with your existing scheme.
6. Layer Your Bed
Introduce extras to your bed for the fall and winter months. Layer in additional pillow pairs and place a decorative throw in a seasonal colour or pattern across the foot of the bed.
