As you add clothing layers to keep warm for the colder weather, why not do the same for your home? While we love a minimal look, we also love the idea of “layering”: adding upon what you already have to bring a sense of warmth and coziness to your home. It is during these months of spending much more time indoors that we need our home to truly be a place of comfort.
For your coffee table, add some magazines, a bowl and a candle. Your couch can also reflect a layered look..adorn your seating with a throw and extra pillows.
Layering can even be achieved on the floor. One of our favorite ways of upping the design ante in a room is to layer rugs. If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, don't hesitate to put an area rug down over it. The same principle applies for placing a small area rug atop a larger one. By doing this, you add new color and dimension to your room.
