With surprising weather highs and lows continuing to hit much of the country, we’re looking at winter home essentials to help you survive the rest of the cold season in comforting style.
From cozy blankets to an update on seasonal lighting, here’s what Décor Aid interior designers consider must-have’s for your home this season.
Since you’ve probably have scores of home fragrances gifted to you over the holiday waiting around ready to burn, create evocative scent stories throughout your home to punctuate the merry mood of the season.
Calming Ambient Lighting
When preparing your home for the winter, create a more intimate and warm feel by switching bulbs out to lower wattage ones for a more soothing glow in the evening.
A Trove Of Books
Throughout the season, stock up on as many inspiring reads as you can so you can curl up in your favorite reading nook and dream away.
Surround yourself with a range of stylish blankets and quilts to better envelope yourself in comfort and go for thin, yet tightly woven finds that’ll be easier to store when it gets warmer out.
Mixed Textures + Materials
Though it’s a tried and true decorating principle for year-round use, when it gets cooler outside, create visual interest by bringing in a more supple array of blankets, throws, and textures to instantly step up the warmth.
A Plush Bathmat
Since it can be a calming sanctuary of sorts, and there’s nothing as startling as walking on a cold floor in the morning, update your bathroom floor mat for something more plush and comforting underfoot. The satisfaction of stepping out of a warm shower onto a sumptuous bathmat during chilly winter months will offer daily benefits.

Fireplace Tool Set
A Stylish Humidifier
Perfect for an extra-large mudroom and small apartments alike, a sleek boot tray will come in handy for the seasons heavy rains and snow, and they can be sourced inexpensively to boot. Even better if you line yours with stones to absorb moisture so your shoes keep dry.
