5 Ways to Keep Your Decor Cozy and Beautiful in January

Jan 09, 2018

There’s nothing like a warm and cozy space to come home to on a cold winter’s night. Your decor choices can go a long way. Accents, colors, blankets, and decor all contribute to the perceived warmth of a space. To help outfit your home or apartment with seasonal yet cozy accents, Timbercreek brings you this list of ways to keep your decor cozy and beautiful in January.

Greenery

One of the best things about Christmas is the abundance of greenery. While trees dry out, pine and cedar boughs tend to last. Leave them up on the mantle after the holidays, or make an arrangement in a vase. Try tying a few boughs together into a bouquet and hang it on the wall or place it decoratively on a coffee or side table.

White

White instills a clean, fresh look that while reminiscent of winter, actually does a lot to bring not only warmth but fashionable, bright, monochromatic accents to a space. It just so happens that white is Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year.

Birch and Wood Accents

Another fantastic Christmas carryover is wood. Whether birch, pine, or cedar, wood accents are always a cozy addition to a room and normally available well past the holidays. Toss some birch logs into a basket, make a faux fire by piling logs into a pyramid, or get a birch candle for the mantel.

Area Rug

Say no to cold floors. It doesn’t matter how thick your socks are, cold hardwood is cold hardwood. Warm up your floors, be they linoleum or brushed concrete, with an area rug. It doesn’t have to be Persian or monstrous. A square of plush softness can do wonders for not only your feet, but the appearance of coziness.

Lighting

Another constant key to keeping a space warm and inviting is lighting. Avoid harsh fluorescents and make sure your bulbs are the proper wattage for every fixture. Even the eco-bulbs can be warm with the right lamp shade. Pick up some full-spectrum bulbs to combat the darkness, or try the clear, exposed filament style ones to add ambiance and that cozy orange glow.
