The Holidays may have passed but Old Man Winter has not given up his hold yet. The bitter cold temperatures remind us that spring weather is still a ways off. These are the days when daylight is shortened and the sun seems to be taking a siesta of its own.
The days when our cold feet are warmed by cozy socks and a few minutes by a roaring fire. All the while a comfy, knitted throw and a good book beckon us to take a minute and relax.
Blankets, throws, pillows and bedding at home stores are coveted this season, and it is now seamless to change the look of the rooms in your home to accent the seasons. A room that is light and airy during the warmer months can be instantly changed to address the colder months by adding a heavy knitted comforter and shams.
Using neutral colors in the upholstery and bedding in your home also allows you to change the feel of the room as often as the season’s change. Linen pillows, cotton throws and accessories that make you think of spring and summer can be exactly what a home needs for welcoming in the warmer months ahead.
When the days become shorter and the temperature drops, the lighter fabrics and textures used in the warmer months can be replaced by heavier knits, fabrics, throws and pillows in richer tones for the fall and winter.
Using hardwood floor, laminate or tile in the home allows for the option of changing rugs to accommodate the chilly weather, and the need to nest in the colder, winter months.
Likewise, during the warmer summer days, heavy knits can be replaced with lighter fabrics and colorful patterns with the use of area rugs and pillows.
Keep in mind that neutral colored carpet, such as our Cypress Estates SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet in Woodscape, easily supplies the perfect backdrop for changing décor with the seasons. Also, remember that any Mohawk carpet can easily be made into a cut and bound rug.
So go grab your cozy knit throw, your book, a cup of tea, and nestle in your favorite chair by the fireplace, relax and wait out Old Man Winter in comfort.
