Creating a Cozy Winter Retreat in Your Home

With the arrival of fall and its cooler temperatures, it's time to transform your living space into a warm and inviting sanctuary. No one wants to be chilly in their own home, and we all appreciate a refreshed and cozy room. We're here to help you achieve the perfect winter haven. Let's explore some practical ways to get your favorite space ready for winter, with rugs as the focal point.

  1. Embrace Texture Variety

Let's start with a practical approach to materials and fabrics. Forget about the need for everything to match perfectly – it's time to mix and match. Consider beginning with a neutral duvet in calming earth tones. Then, let your creativity shine by adding colorful and whimsical cushions in various sizes and shapes to create a playful contrast. Alternatively, you can opt for a colorful bedspread and keep your pillows neutral. Don't hesitate to make bold choices. Cushions not only enhance the decor but also provide extra warmth and comfort. To add an extra layer of coziness, drape a soft throw at the end of your bed – your feet will thank you! Blankets are cost-effective, and you can easily switch them out for a fresh look every few days. To complete your cozy atmosphere, choose a centerpiece rug with a thick, soft wool pile that's perfect for the colder months. 

  1. A Touch of History with Moroccan Rugs

Moroccan rugs come with a rich history and have been essential for keeping homes warm in Morocco, especially without central heating. Skilled weavers would dedicate weeks to crafting these plush treasures, often in their modest kitchens using wooden handlooms. This age-old tradition continues today, with generations of weavers passing down their expertise. The results are truly stunning, and there's nothing quite like an authentic Moroccan rug. While many try to mass-produce these unique pieces, they can't capture the magic. At Lost Hunt, we're committed to preserving the craftsmanship of these talented weavers.

      3. Be Bold and Beautiful

If you're a fan of vibrant colors, consider layering a few rugs to make a bold statement in your space. Think about swapping out your standard lighting for something softer that complements your stunning rugs. Especially during fall and winter, nothing beats a comfortable and well-lit space. In an instant, your room will be transformed into a warm and inviting haven. If your style leans toward modern or classic, opt for neutral pillows. For the adventurous decorator, try layering rugs. Place a smaller rug over a larger one with a similar color to your flooring to highlight the area rug and add depth to your room. Alternatively, experiment with neutral rugs that offer different textures while still complementing each other. The possibilities for fun rug experimentation are endless!

Don't Forget...

The right seasonal rug can set the tone for any space. A rug (or two) can be the missing link that ties all your furniture together into a cohesive look. If your personal style is more eclectic, go for pops of color, diverse patterns, and various textiles and textures.
