The long, cold and dark days mean you are likely spending a lot more time inside. Beat the winter blues this season by making your living room the coziest place to be with some simple decor updates.
While the simplest way to beat the chill this winter is with cozy throw blankets, pillows and other soft elements will help you warm up a space.
