With the cooler weather we move indoors to stay cozy and snugly. You might want to update your rooms and make them feel warmer but not break the bank. By adding just a few elements to a room you can change the feeling completely. Here are 5 simple ways to update and create the welcoming warmth, along with some reasonable resources to find great item.
Let’s first start with pillows. Pillows in warm tone, textures and sizes are great for changing the feel of a room.

Add a layer, find a luscious warm throw to wrap yourself in.

Or maybe a fur throw that are popular and trending now from Pottery Barn
Then warm up the ambiance with some candles. Consider grouping a few together in different heights to make a statement.
Adding drapery’s to your windows can add not only visual warmth but also help keep heat in. You can go for custom, semi-custom, or off the rack depending on your budget. Window treatments add a focal point to a room, along with enhancing your view.
The Shade Store offers semi custom drapery. I call it semi because you select from their fabrics and the styles they offer, with those selections their is an array to choose from. Similar is Smith and Nobel offering customers semi custom drapery. You could also look for less expensive options which would be from Overstock, and Bed Bath & Beyond
Last consider adding a rug to keep your feet warm in your rooms. I find a rug is also a great way to update the feeling of a space lending character and style. Consider the size of the room when purchasing a rug. If you go with a solid rug like a shag pile purchasing two smaller rugs placed next to one another may provide you the coverage you need for a larger space at a better price than one large rug. Don’t go too small when you are looking for rugs.
Adding all these elements or just a few will lend warmth and character creating an inviting room, making it a place you will want to burrow away in through the cold winter months. The resources provided help you save money, as you can see decorating does not need to break the bank!
