Make your Home Warm for Winter

Without adding heat, you can make your home feel warmer and cozier by making simple changes to your décor.  Here are a few tips:

1. Add winter fabrics like velvet, flannel and corduroy in deep jewel tones.  This can be done by changing pillows or draperies.

2. Place an afghan or fleece blanket on the back of a sofa to encourage cuddling.

2. If you have a fireplace, move furniture closer to create a cozy feeling.

3. Change art work on the walls to reflect the change of season.  If you like to display family photos, add some that depict winter scenes.

4. Create a warm glow with candles (just remember to use them safely).

Don’t forget to be safe while staying warm.  Be careful when burning candles and make sure you have functioning smoke detectors, then visit the U.S. Fire Administration website for information on fireplace safety.
