Is there anything less appealing than tucking into a chilly bedroom on a cold winter night? There’s the nip at your toes followed by the unwelcome freeze of a cold pillow. Not to mention the moments spent shivering while clutching a pile of blankets. It’s absolutely miserable.
What can you do? Turning up the heat is step one. Making the room more cozy is step two.
And the way to do that? Well, taking a good long look at one’s furnishings is the place to start. Believe it or not, different colors, textures, and designs can warm up a bedroom enormously even before adding a space heater or hot water bottle.
You can add ambiance with updated lighting, keep out the chill with fresh window coverings, and amp up a calming aura by implementing soothing colors. Another simple touch is to replace or add a cozy area rug. You’d be amazed how much a new rug will physically keep the cold out as well aesthetically make a space more inviting.

Sporting a simple tree motif, this rug would work well in a children’s bedroom or guest bedroom.
