Say goodbye to frozen feet from that cold wood floor with a luxurious faux fur rug. The piece, which can also be combined with fur pillows, will instantly amp up the coziness of a room. If you’re going to do both, mix in pillows in other patterns like designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard did in this sitting area.

FOCUS ON THE FIREPLACEIf you have a fireplace in your home, arrange your furniture so that it centers around the hearth. Even if the fireplace is non-working, this will create a sense of intimacy that will chase the cold away.

Speaking of fires…rusty red and goldenrod yellow, colors that are often found in a roaring blaze, can actually make you feel warmer. Color psychology has shown that people who feel cold prefer warm shades like red and yellow. We suggest using red as the base hue, accenting with yellows and varying between solids and patterns.

TRANSITION BRIGHTS WITH A VELVET TUFTED HEADBOARDIf your bedroom is decorated in bright colors that feel too summery, consider adding a tufted headboard upholstered in deeply-hued velvet. The rich texture of this fabric will bring some weight to the space that will make it feel more seasonally appropriate.
