However, there are bits and pieces of decorative furniture that belong in the house all year round that contribute not just to this seasonal period of homeliness but also to the inviting nature of your interiors beyond the winter season.

It is all well and good dressing your home up for Christmas, but these little embellishments are only likely to account for a few weeks of the year. Your home needs to look and feel comfortable and homely even when you are not putting in the extra effort.

This is what rugs and cushions and throws are for. Shaggy rugs and sheepskin rugs keep the home looking really cosy and their effect is bolstered by the inclusion of soft throws and comfortable cushions that dress your items of furniture and make them even more welcoming.
