Interiors By Cheryll: Warm Up Your Rooms With Rugs, Throws, Fur

This winter, keep warm ­without turning up the ­thermostat.

Call it a the placebo effect or just good, intuitive design, but as we roll into fall it is imperative that our rooms look and feel warm.

Start with area rugs on the floor of the bedroom, bathroom, foyer, living room, ­dining room, den and pretty much any­where you spend long periods of time or where you need to set the tone.

For fall, I love the look and the feel of sheepskin, long shag textures, cow hides, and sculpted, knotted or twisted wool.

An area carpet will feel warmer if it has less sheen. You also want to think about how it feels on your toes.

Just as it is fashionable to layer our clothing, it is equally as fashionable to layer your ­carpets.

Try a smattering of three cow hides on the den floor or a sculpted wool carpet laid over top of wall to wall carpet in the living room.

Cozy throws should be tossed over backs and arms of all your favourite pieces of ­furniture.

I love the look and feel of sheepskins on dining room chair seats, faux fur throws laid on top of beds and heavy cable-knit blankets laid over the arms of comfy sofas and lounge chairs.

I even have a faux fur throw on my desk chair in the office.

For more warmth, ­consider laying velvet table­cloths overtop of a kitchen or dining ­table. Yes, you can get wash­able ­velvets. In fact, a washed or distressed velvet is one of the hottest textures this year.

In the ensuite or your main bath, indulge and pamper yourself.

Hang a thicker robe and change your towels to thick plush cotton.

Lay thick toe-curling rugs on the floor.

Throughout the house, add more candlelight and increase the wattage in your lamps to ensure plenty of warm light.

Remember to check the bulb package to ensure you’re buying the desired warm or cool light. In summer, use mostly cool lights and change to warm light in the fall and winter.

Scent plays an important role in design.

Naturally scent your home with rich, warmth-inspiring smells such as cinnamon, orange, sandalwood, myrrh or cedar.

Change out any summertime photos and replace them with more seasonal photographs.

It is the attention to details that will elevate your rooms from good to great.
