Hi Everyone! Cheryl Hucks, your DESIGN INTERPRETER, with TIPS FOR A COZY WINTER HOME, my topic for Fox 8 WGHP last Friday, January 9. 2014. Every time I appear on Fox 8, I set my DVR to tape it but guess what? It will not tape! I wish I knew why…my DVR can have not other programs saved and it still will not record it. Any ideas as to why?
Think Ski Lodges for a cozy winter home. You can use the same elements in your home too.
Gray wooden walls are the backdrop for warm red and orange accents. White fuzzy area rugs provide warm.
I would love to stay in a ski lodge with this warm, inviting and gorgeous room! Might be difficult to leave this cozy place to the freezing slopes! Most of the warm colors are in the accessories and drapes. It would not be too expensive to make these few changes to your own bedroom. www.skimagazine.com
Wow!! Orange, yellow and green! Perfect place to watch it snow, drink hot chocolate and cozy up to the fire. Take your clues from skir lodge furniture arrangement: furniture closer to a fire and creating intimate conversation areas. www.hgtv.com

Blackout lined draperies will insulate your rooms from the cold outside as well as darkened your bedroom for better sleep and lower the noise level. Designer Tip: White or light colored draperies will be just as room darkening as dark fabric if both are lined in the same blackout lining. www.the companystore.com
