As I sit here watching the snow fall and counting the days until spring, I have come to terms with the fact that winter is in full force, especially in Montreal! Although I’ve never been Jack Frost’s biggest fan, I enjoy winter for the simple reason that as we retreat more towards the indoors this time of year, we get to cozy up our living environment. Here are 5 easy tips to create a winter retreat right in your home this season.
1. Add texture
Faux fur is back with a vengeance and we love this! Adding faux fur tosses and faux fur throws will add warmth and texture to your space, not to mention they are so soft and cuddly!
2. Bring on the toss pillows!
Tosses are a great way to cozy up a space. Grab a few that are different sizes to add layers to the setting. The animal print tosses are a great way to bring that cabin feeling right into your home, not to mention they are so much fun!
3. Throw on a throw
A winter retreat is not complete without a knitted throw. Throws add to the ambiance and they’ll keep you warm on those cold winter evenings! When not in use drape the throw over your Nest chair or sofa for styling.
4. Bring the outdoors indoors
This season add some foliage to your setting. Less is more, so a few accents can bring a nice woodsy feeling to your space.
5. Decor touches
Add a few decor accents such as; candles, animal decor, a lantern for ambient lighting and a few serving trays. This will create an inviting space and tie everything together to complete the look.
Let’s embrace this winter and enjoy a nice warm and cozy retreat right in our home. So this season snuggle up with your loved one, a good book or your fur baby and a cup of hot cocoa, and enjoy the wonderful retreat you have created. Don’t forget the cookies!
