Choose rich, deep colors like burgundy, navy, and forest green to create an inviting atmosphere. “I also tend to invest in a good mattress and pillow cover as they help in maintaining the temperature” informs Jerath.
2. Statement lighting for ambiance:
Homeowner Sushmita Ambastha, advises, "Upgrade your lighting fixtures to create a cozy ambiance. Consider statement pendant lights or chic table lamps that not only illuminate but also add a touch of elegance to your space. Warm-toned bulbs can mimic the soft glow of a winter sunset."

4. Smart temperature control:
Tech enthusiast, Pranav Singh, emphasises the importance of smart home solutions. "Invest in a smart thermostat to control your home's temperature efficiently. Set it to warm up just before you arrive home, ensuring a cozy welcome without unnecessary energy consumption.”
