All the nice furniture and decorative items would not be enough if your house does not have the homely warmth. Therefore, it is very important that you do up the house in way that would turn it into a home. A lot of difference can be brought about by adding splashes of colors to the different areas of the house. You can go with shades of light green for the walls of the bathroom. For the bedrooms, you should go with colors that are warm. Rich and dark colors should be used for the living rooms of the house.
The carpets are also very important. You could also go with area rugs for getting the perfect homely atmosphere. If you are living in a cold climate you should go with a hearth as it will make the area very comfortable. Makes sure you make the bedroom comfortable with a lot of pillows and fine linens.
