As cooler temperatures have us spending more time indoors, check out these tips to make every room in your home inviting.
Bring some country charm to the most popular space for every family by incorporating the trendy farmhouse style. This budget-friendly look is all about rustic and repurposed, so give new life to an old bar stool with a fresh coat of paint or try reclaimed shiplap instead of tiles. Finish off with natural touches like wooden or woven baskets and flowers or plants.
A rejuvenating, luxurious home spa is the perfect way to unwind after a long day. Make your own with a neutral colour palette, plush towels and bathrobes, and pampering must-haves like essential oils and scented candles. Soothing features like a romantic claw-foot tub and towel warmer complete the relaxing vibes.
Freshen up the space with a dramatic colour on the walls or in accessories — a deep navy on a statement wall works as a surprising neutral. At the window, replace heavy draperies that block views and natural light sources with pared-down window treatments that let in light without looking dated. Pirouette window shadings from Hunter Douglas are a sophisticated choice for both traditional and contemporary rooms and feature soft horizontal fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing, which allow for enhanced views to the outside while maintaining privacy.
Cozy comfort is crucial for a calming bedroom. A carefully curated messy look that’s lived-in and personalized with your favourite items is low maintenance and welcoming while still being on-trend. Keep blankets in pretty prints on hand, display stacks of books, and hang an eclectic mix of wall art for an easy laid back aesthetic. Blackout shades are a must for a good night’s sleep.
