According to Ralph Lauren, a home can be turned into an inviting cold-weather sanctuary with the addition of fabrics and textiles. Adding throws, pillows and a pastiche of seasonal tones and textures invite comfort and a sense of belonging. "A cashmere blanket and pillows will instantly transform a neutral sofa into a cozy retreat, while tartan patterns dress up any home accent—from barware to frames and vanity trays— adding instant holiday chic," notes Lauren.
Added touches to personalize the room include a scattering of votive candles and bits of fir and pine. Candles add a sense of indigenous gardens of nature, where fresh fragrances invite ambience. The décor-friendly scents bring in energy from the outdoors with a special glow especially for long evenings indoors. Plucked from fresh fragrances, a home décor-friendly scented palette is a most welcome invitation to come in from the great outdoors. http://www.chesapeakebaycandle.com/journeys-c-294.html
Ideas are endless with opportunity to add one's personal style with photos, memoirs, books and collection pieces, inviting a welcoming cold-weather holiday hearth.
