the decor list

The Christmas decorations must come down. And while I thought I loved my decor before, without all of the lights and sparkle my house looks... I can barely bring myself to say it....plain. And a plain home is just one of those things that is never acceptable! Even with the holidays being over, I still want a cozy home for these cold winter months (Don’t judge me-- 50 feels cold! I know..... I can’t even call myself a Minnesotan anymore...) Here are a few easy ways to create a luxurious retreat from the cold weather.
Add a cozy bold color or bright patterned rug to a room.
Add luxury with touches of velvet, whether it be a drape or a pillow. Ideally, I would like a whole velvet couch but that might be a bit out o’ the budget!
And finally, what would make it feel just like a mountain lodge? (Well, a fireplace, but I think that might be a bit more difficult/spendy to add.) A bar! Tune in next Thursday for quick how to guide. Hint? It could start with this sleek lucite table from CB2.
Here's the list:
Velvet textured pillow, CB2, $39.95
Velvet Pillows, World Market, $9.99
Velvet Drapes, World Market, $24.99
Purple Z Gallerie rug, $299
Pink flower rug, ABC carpet & home, $599
Velvet Chaise, Urban Outfitters, $579
Velvet tufted headboard, Urban Outfitters, $349
