Create Your Winter Retreat at Home

Posted on 11/01/2011 by Holly Clark

Winter is a delightful time to snuggle into a warm and cozy bed. Indulge in this special seasonal comfort—and give your bedroom an elegant face lift at the same time—with new bedding.To create your bedroom winter wonderland, invest in a soft, fluffy comforter, high quality-sheets, and stylish decorative pillows. Choose whatever patterns and color schemes you are drawn to, but think about opting for richer, deeper tones such as gold, red, burgundy, brown, or smoky blue that will enhance the feeling of warmth in the room. Sheets are where your skin makes the most contact, so comfort and quality should be a priority. Cotton is by far the most popular material, though you may prefer the additional warmth of a cotton/flannel mixture this time of year. Pay attention to thread count per inch when evaluating sheets; the higher the thread count, the softer and more luxurious they will be. For a finished look, make your bed with the flat sheet’s patterned side down so that when it is folded over, the design shows.Use decorative throw pillows to add an extra touch of luxury. Decorative pillows are available in many shapes, including squares, rectangles, circles, and bolsters, and serve as stylish embellishments to standard shams. Select colors and textures that call some attention to themselves but also complement the bed’s central look. Most experts feel that five decorative pillows, including shams, is ideal for the perfect presentation.
