With the latest blast of frigid air to roar into the United States, it’s officially time to turn our attention inside where it’s warm and cozy. For the next six weeks in particular, many of us will be focusing on our living and dining rooms in anticipation of the arrival of family and guests for the holiday festivities.
There are many touches you can add to your home to make it feel warm and inviting. A wood accent wall, soft throws or pillows in deep colors tossed on the couch, and rustic lighting are all great choices for giving your space a comfortable and stylish look.
