Ideas for a cozy New Year’s Eve … and beyond!
Ready to put the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind you? So are we … and that’s why we’re sharing these tips to enjoy staying home – and welcoming guests – on New Year’s Eve and throughout the winter season.
Let’s stay home with plush and textured throws.
We love to wrap ourselves up in something soft and enjoy the fire! Not just for bringing in the New Year, but for any time of day, revel in silky fibers, sassy fringe, and chunky weaves. Neutrals go with any décor, of course, but you can also choose from bold patterns and rich colors. Maybe even customize your throw with a personalized monogram! Pull your favorite throw (and a special someone?) close and snuggle to your heart’s content.
Let’s stay home with extra comfort under our feet.
If you’re like us, treating your tootsies to texture, natural fibers, and colorful floor coverings adds extra comfort to cold winter days and nights. Wool, cotton, or jute rugs, for example, will instantly transform the feel of your home. Look for hand-knotted and hand-dyed rugs as a rich addition to any rooms, and choose from cozy and beautiful area rugs at lower prices, as well. We like these from Joss & Main. Plus, deck your hallways, too! Runners add color, pattern, and style and can update any space.
Let’s stay home and welcome guests with the warmth of light.
Yes, you can enjoy a night staying in with the company of friends and family, too! And nothing gives your house that homey feel like the warmth and ambiance of perfect lighting. Choose something stylish with a mid-century floor lamp or play with texture and color in a lamp becomes a statement piece in any room. Table lamps from traditional to contemporary and everything in between provide a warm intimate glow. We particularly like lanterns, too. Select from antique-look burnt metal or go big with a lantern-style chandelier. Don’t forget your outdoor lighting, too, for a truly inviting welcome!
Whether snuggling in for a New Year’s Eve date night or collecting family and friends for any celebration, let’s stay home and enjoy the warmth and beauty of our surroundings!
Happy New Year from Dahl House Design!
P.S. Don’t forget the candles! Appealing and engaging candles add cheer to any room … or help you lower the lights to cuddle up with someone special. Either way, candles (and maybe a pleasant fire) are must-add items for these colder days and chilly nights.
