Cooler weather is on the way. When you pull your hats and gloves out of storage and pick out a bold new coat, don’t forget to bundle your living room up for the season, too. Here are 6 ways to cozy up your space this season.

TRY PLUSH FABRICS

There’s nothing cozier than curling up with a book on a soft, plush sofa. Think of upholstery fabrics like velvet and chenille as a throw blanket permanently adding chunky texture, softness and shine to your sofa or chair. Not ready to refresh your big-ticket items? Spring for a velvet-upholstered ottoman or chenille throw blanket for the same effect.

ADD DRAMATIC LIGHTING

Shorter days mean light fixtures will get more of a workout. Make your living room lighting functional and stylish by adding an oversized pendant, like this modern perforated metal model. It looks (almost) just as stunning when the lights are off!

EMBRACE JEWEL TONES

Jewel tones like navy blue, emerald green and the color of the year, marsala, are perfect for cooler seasons. Embrace the color full-force with a coat of paint on the walls and the built-ins — it’ll provide a dramatic backdrop to your art and accessories, and can even make small rooms appear more spacious. Go ahead, give it a try!

Winter Throws

ADD PLUSH THROWS

‘Tis the season to wrap up! Make your throws stylish and comfy by opting for colorful, textural pieces that add dimension to your sofa. Add a large woven basket near to the sofa to keep extra options guest-ready.

GO METALLIC

Who doesn’t love a good shiny accessory? But they’re more than just decorative: Metallic pieces reflect available light around the space, creating a subtle glow. Shop your favorite vintage stores for quirky brushed gold or brass pieces to be especially on-trend this season.

COVER UP THE WINDOWS

Don’t forget to bundle up the windows, too! Swap the sheers from summer and fall for thicker window treatments that add style and also help insulate your home from the elements. (Bonus points if you add a fun curtain rod with a metallic finish or a decorative finial.)
