Does winter wear you down?
A wonderful way to enjoy this cold season is to warm up your home’s décor so you feel cozier and happier.
After you’ve taken down all your holiday décor, and left behind the excitement of January’s new year resolutions, February can feel a little empty.
But by adding a few key items and bringing in some inspiring textures and tones, you’ll cozy up your home and get settled to enjoy the rest of the winter.
Check out our top picks from O.co, also known as Overstock.com, that will help you enjoy winter even when it’s freezing outside.
Warm up your Home with a Cozy Rug
If you have hard wood or tile floors in your house, you know just how cold they can get in the winter months.
Cover cold floors with soft area rugs and you will warm up your room and make your home feel so much cozier.
We love this Safavieh California Cozy Solid Beige Shag Rug.
It’s super soft so it’s nice on your feet and it blends well with almost any decor.
A new rug can make your home feel brand new again.
