With the hibernating season just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to do some makeovers to cozy up your space while adding some Christmas cheer. Here are some quick and easy tips to help you along.

Let There Be Light

Just because the days are dark and cold doesn’t mean your home should be too! Keeping your home bright and warm allows you to embrace the upcoming holidays. While it’s okay to have more extended periods of snuggling and curling up under the blankets, a dark and cold home can trigger depression.

Aim to open your windows during the day even for at least a few hours. Not only does it help let more natural light come in, but it can also improve circulation and remove air pollutants. 

With the nights longer, consider adding more artificial lighting to supplement your needs for brightness. Something decorative like this magnificent chandelier also doubles as a special Christmas ornament.

Get Ready to Entertain

We don’t really get a lot of holidays in a year, so why not take this time to be more social? Spending time with friends and family is one of the best things about Christmas, after all, and while you’re at it, try to be the best host.

Aside from preparing good food and drinks, make sure that you have enough tables and chairs to accommodate your guests and keep them comfortable. If you’re thinking about shopping for new furniture, this classic wood dining table should be on the top of your list because it’s simply gorgeous!

Aim for Comfort

As winter breaks are coming up, prepare for your kids to spend a lot of time indoors. Consider changing into thick beddings and adding some textured layers to match the season.

You might want to follow the same principle in your living room. Extra throws and blankets could induce warmth. It’s also a good idea to put some pillows on the floors near the fireplace to enjoy some wine!

Add Pops of Color

When preparing your home for winter, you have to be mindful of bringing in more hues to deviate from your dark and gloomy exterior. All it takes is adding a few bright-colored throws or décors, especially in neutral spaces. Avoid piling up on more whites, blacks, and grays to avoid triggering the winter blues. If you can afford it, you can also purchase a statement piece that is bold and flashy.

Speaking of, this cobalt chair is the only kind of blue that you need this Christmas! Placed strategically, this can liven up any dead corner and work as a comfy nook to snuggle yourself into.
