2. Add white fluffy pillows in the living room
Pile up armchairs and sofas with big and cuddly pillows in a pseudo-neglected way. Preferably chose linen colors to bring sweetness to your interior or chose pure white colors to catch the winter sunlight. Volume is essential to soften a room and to make it appear more welcoming. We’re pretty sure everybody will want to sink into your collection of fluffy pillows.
3. Drap a big chunky knit blanket or a fur throw over the beds.
Once again, decorate simply but efficiently. You don’t have to accumulate lots of pillows over your bed, just put one knit blankets or one fur throw over your bed. It will immediately add softness to your bedroom and will make it a more pleasant place to hunker down.
4. Set your mood for Christmas adding a Door Wreath
Hanging a Wreath to your door will immediately turn your home a more welcoming place. It’s the first thing you see before you step foot into your home. So dazzle yourself and chose the wreath that best suits to your image of Christmas: put around a simple wreath holly branches, pine cones, glitters, colorful orbs or fabric scraps in Christmas’ colors.
5. Add shots of dark, red, green and gold colors to your interior
Finish your home’s transformation for Christmas adding red, dark green and gold accessories such as candle burners, candy cane jars, glittering stars or Christmas stockings to your living room. But keep it simple, don’t accumulate too much ornaments or you might have a Christmas’ overdose.
Your home is now ready for Winter! 🙂
