Winters in India, aren’t like winters everywhere else. The Indian winters don’t just begin in a day as you look out the window and it starts snowing. The winters here begin almost as if they still are not ready to leave the hands of fall, say adios to sunny summer days, bid farewell to the sprinkles of monsoon, and not ready to welcome spring just yet because the sadness of it leaving so quickly is unbearable.
The chilly days only fully begin from the month of December, after just announcing its arrival weeks before. That’s the beauty of the season. The slowness with which it arrives and how quickly it goes by whispering in your ears, “Hey, I’ll see you soon.” Despite this, we love to enjoy the snuggly season with our loved ones at home.

3) Choose the vibrant versions of your favourite pastels
We know some of you are just diehard fans of pastels and it is not your fault, pastels are gorgeous without a doubt. However, pastels are generally good for the spring season for their lighter nature which complements the blooming flowers.
To create the cosy winter vibes in your home, you can choose for darker versions of your favourite pastels. For instance, if lavender is your go to colour, you can go for a rug in a purple tone. On the other hand, if you prefer baby pinks, you can easily go for a rug in a magenta shade. Alternatively, you can get a rug which is a combination of several other pastel shades to add to the vibrancy of your ambiance. The Sunrise-M Hand Tufted Woollen and Viscose Rug is a perfect rug, if this is the ambience you’re going for.

4) Experiment with layering
If you have tried everything and nothing seems to be working, the best way to create a cosy space in your home is to master the art of layering. Layering is a design trick that designers and homeowners use to add depth and vibrancy to their spaces. The process involves using a solid rug as a base and placing a patterned rug on top of it. Layering can be achieved using the traditional method of placing a single patterned rug on top of a solid wall to wall carpet, or by placing several different coloured rugs to add more character to your space.
To achieve this classic winter look, you can use the Tenzin-B rug as your base rug, and place the Oliver Hand Tufted Woollen Rug on top of it to create your perfect winter home.
