The holidays are right around the corner, and whether you’re planning to welcome guests to your home or not, you might be thinking of sprucing up the place. At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we have some ideas for how you can make an impact to your home so it’s holiday-ready or just everyday-ready. Check out our tips below!
Bring in the Color and Décor
Giving your walls some color—through fresh paint or new artwork or décor—can really give your interior a facelift. You can achieve this year’s trending mix of warm and cool tones by choosing one wall as a focal point and painting it a trendy bright yellow. Then you can additionally transform it by adding complementary artwork—whether holiday-specific pieces or day-to-day décor—in cool neutrals or grays. A great place to find budget-friendly original artwork is in your neighborhood coffee shop or community center, where they frequently display and sell pieces made by local artisans.
That Cabin Feeling
The idea of “holidays” often evokes an image of a rustic mountain lodge in the winter, so bringing in that rustic coziness could be key. One quick way to do that (and add a sense of the comfy) is by breaking out the accent pillows and throw blankets that have different textures and patterns to create an aura reminiscent of a mountain cabin.
Adjust the Light
Lighting can be the best part of creating a cozy winter scene for a space, so adjusting your lighting accordingly could make a huge change. You can use dimmable LED lights to warm a room, as well as candles (either old-school match-lit candles or battery-powered, programmable flameless ones) to get the space in a wintery, holiday mood. And during daylight hours, your window coverings can help set the scene for your cozy fall and winter retreat. Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades by Hunter Douglas are made from two layers of fabric that diffuse light and create a warming glow, and they act as insulation at the window, with an energy-efficient barrier that keeps outside air out and inside air in. And right now, they’re available with rebate savings from until December 6, so they’re even more appealing! So, enjoy your holiday home this season, with warm and cozy accents and just the right light.
