Modern candle holders add a visual focal point to the coffee table during warmer months and brings warmth to the seating area. When temperatures turn cool the coffee table converts to an outdoor fireplace to extend living into chilly evenings.

The prefinished engineered hardwood floor in the entry and main floor of the home in "greige" (a color between beige and gray) adds warmth to the space. The medium tone floor offers a nice compromise to a super light or dark look.
Plants are an easy, inexpensive and glamorous way to add warmth and style to your home. They add a touch of green and brightness on dark winter days.

The dark wood cabinetry, neutral tile backsplash and beige walls help make this cozy kitchen a warm and inviting atmosphere. A built-in wine refrigerator is the perfect accompaniment to bar seating and provides additional countertop space for entertaining. Design by Beth Haley
This pint-size kitchen lives larger than it actually is thanks to a mix of materials and a receding jewel-toned paint color. Painted wood, stainless steel, exposed brick and warm pine flooring come together beautifully to create a functional kitchen that’s anything but blah. Concealed storage keeps it looking uncluttered and a multitude of drawers ensure spices and utensils are within easy reach.
