Are you starting to feel the dampness and cold creeping in? I have to say, I was yearning for wool sweaters and flannel sheets yesterday. Yet, as much as I love to cozy up, I also hate to lose a certain sense of freshness in my home.

I think the example above, from Architectural Digest, nicely exemplifies how we can bring in darkly warming touches to our rooms without losing a sense of light.

Notice, for instance, the wall colour: white! It’s a simple tip, but a neutral palette of this staple offers you the most versatility for change across the seasons.

Against that background you can layer the darker elements: leather-bound books, architectural prints, some greenery, and darker furniture.
