Cozy winter rooms ...

I love winter snuggles! Don't smack me if you live in a cold climate. But, here in Texas winter is a welcome relief from our mostly warm (okay, hot) weather. Although the seasonal drop in temperature is short, it's delightful to hibernate in a cozy winter room.

I have a penchant for dark colors and love the warmth rich hues bring to a room. It doesn't hurt when the space is spectacularly decorated and aglow from a roaring fire. Bellissimo!

Add toe-carressing furry rugs, luxe blankets and cushy pillows, and I can take a long winter's nap in winter white bliss, too.

Every relaxing space in our house is decked out with blankets during the cool months. There is a throw blanket on every chair, and even on our piano bench. We love sitting in the evening wrapped in cozy covers.

Those special reading nooks become havens for relaxation in the winter.

When the outside color diminishes in the winter, it's fun to warm up a room with lively, deep tones to bring a little cheer inside. Rugs, pillows and artwork can turn up the heat during those chilly days indoors. Even dining spaces can capture the season with heavier textiles and warming candles.

Cheers to those who make their gathering rooms blissfully cozy when the weather outside is frightful.
