Decorating tips for a warm, cozy feel

    If you’re going to be home-bound for the remainder of this long, frozen winter, you might as well style your home to feel as warm and cozy as possible. “Accessories can really bring a fresh look into the room without breaking the bank,” says Bets Miller, co-owner of Nest Inspired Home in Rye. Check out these suggestions for a warmer, more inviting space to snuggle up in:

    Rugs: “There’s no question that using a rug on wood flooring will help,” says Joanna Cohlan of Fresh Eyes For Your Home Interior Design in Chappaqua. “Besides giving your room a defined footprint, it will help retain heat.” Try a rug with a higher pile, rather than flatter weaves which can feel cold and sterile.

    Window treatments: Cohlan recommends treatments, such as honeycomb shades, that have a high “R-value,” which measures resistance to heat loss. “I often use top-down/bottom-up shades because that way they can get the light and not lose heat or air conditioning in the appropriate season,” explains Cohlan. Insulated curtains can also help, but leave them open during the daytime to let sunshine warm the room.
