With the holidays right around the corner, you’ll want to put your home into a festive spirit, and that is why it is time to start thinking of Christmas! Whether you are just hosting a small family gathering or you are going to have a small horde of people running through your home until after the new year, it is always best to be prepared for the holidays and some of the joyous stress that you know is going to be coming up.
Stock Up on Blankets and Robes
How do you like to keep warm when you are wandering around the house? Weekends in pajamas are wonderful, but it’s less comfortable if you are feeling ever so slightly chilled as you wander around. This is where stocking up on blankets and robes can really make a big difference.
Lay them over the backs of chairs or leave them in small chests in a traditional room. This is a good way to make your home inviting to guests. Choose a wide variety of warm blankets and robes for this purpose to give your home a wonderfully traditional, lived-in look.
Put Down Some Area Rugs
The holiday season brings a little bit of chill to the air, but the last thing that you want is for that chill to be allowed into the house! Just like you put up storm windows, you should be looking for ways to make your home a little more snugger in general, and that is where area rugs come in.
Gorgeous rugs in wool and silk add a bit of luxury to your winter home and let you keep things just a little more cozy.
Boil It Up
During winter, a newly active furnace can unfortunately fill your home with a dusty smell. If you want to make sure that your home smells fresh and lovely for your holiday, consider throwing a small pot of water onto the stove to boil. Add a few thin slices of orange with the peel on, a handful of cranberries and three sticks of cinnamon, and let it simmer away. This allows you to scent your home in a lovely way without resorting to chemicals, and it fills your home with a delightfully wonderful holiday scent.
The right area rug can make your home much more snug, and that is why you need to make a trip to the Medallion Rug Gallery. Whether you choose wool or silk, there is something to keep you warm against the cold.
