As you pack the holiday decorations away, it’s a perfect time to cozy up for the long, cold months ahead with comforting shades and warm colors.

Texture, texture, texture!

Texture, texture, texture!

“It’s all about texture, layering and pops of color,” said local Interior Designer Nikki Wolfe, who stresses that it’s possible to transform your living space on a budget. “If you have a neutral palette, it’s so easy to add throw pillows or even just new pillow coverings, rugs and accent pieces. You will get a whole new look without spending much at all.”

The eclectic look is still in, according to Nikki. “Rich layers with curated accessories create a warm, collective vibe,” she said.
Wolfe, who is also a realtor with RE/MAX Preferred, said she encourages clients to redecorate by putting all of their accent pieces on their dining or kitchen table and evaluating where they can next be used, suggesting moving these items into different rooms to give the spaces a new look. “It gives you a whole different feel,” she said.

Make a statement and create a new focal point in a room by painting an accent wall or layering throw pillows and blankets in bright, contrasting colors, she said. “It’s all about layering—make things look warm and inviting using texture like faux fur, sequins or burlap.”

Evoke the feeling of more natural settings too, the Perrysburg resident explained. For the colder months, she uses winter elements like birchwood, logs, pine cones, chunky wool and stones.

“Some of your holiday decorations might still work but just tone them down a bit—like remove the pops of red—but most of all, do what feels right for you and what makes your family cozy and comfortable.”
