Make it Cozy

Making a space warm and inviting is critical to creating a place you (and your friends) actually want to spend time in. If you want to create a comfortable lounge area or living room, consider incorporating luxurious throws and soft, plush pillows that complement your color palette. If you’re looking to warm up a bedroom, consider treating yourself to in-room amenities like a reading nook complete with a cozy chair, small table and decorative lighting.

Invest in New Lighting

Speaking of lighting, it can change your perspective on an entire room. Why spend all that time decorating on your own or with a talented interior designer only to have guests miss beautiful details due to a dimly lit space? Bring your hard work to light with a few tasteful lighting upgrades.


Reduce Clutter

Clutter can truly detract from a beautifully designed space. Tuck all of your unnecessary knick-knacks, décor, appliances and pictures away in cabinets and other storage spaces and enjoy the view (and the extra square footage).


Freshen up with Greenery

Nothing brings tasteful color to a home like indoor plants. Whether blooming or simply leafy and green, houseplants are a great way to bring color and oxygen into a house stuffy with dry winter air.


Start Your Gallery

Invest in statement art pieces that truly represent you, your home and your general aesthetic. Who likes a bland wall? Take cues from your home’s color palette and pick a new treat for guests to admire.
