When temperature begins to fall, naturally we look for warm and welcoming temples. A fireplace can convert a room into the interior shelter for comfort and relaxation, while the blinds and curtains open to sunlight are a source of energy and undoubtedly a daily pleasure.
At this time of year, it’s time to welcome a hot steaming chocolate, rustic decor, and a palette of warm and rich colors. It is also time to embrace the “hygge“, the Danish concept that is based on “seeking happiness in the small things of life”.
Explore four elegant winter houses in the Maresme with cozy spaces and focused on being a source of warmth.

Welcoming family and friends in a warm lobby always makes a great impression. The usage of wood, the ocher colored walls and the terracotta colored carpets are the right alternatives.

The tranquility and warmth of the home seem to call us when temperature drops. The living room next to the fireplace is the corner par excellence and, therefore, the color, both of the walls and the furniture and fabrics, is a leading actor during the winter. Mustards, reddish and green add a touch of warmth feelings. Natural materials, from wood to cotton, have the ability to create a sense of home with their mere presence.

Natural light benefits us in a way we could not even consider. Not only is it perceived that a house with good natural light is warmer and more welcoming than a darker house, but it is also better for our physical and mental health. Fill your rooms with sun!

Even the most private corners can become true spaces of winter comfort. Natural elements such as wood, scented candles and bubble bath are the perfect condiments for cold nights.
It can also be a great idea to simmer a pot of scents using ingredients such as cinnamon sticks, apple peels, cloves, vanilla and nutmeg. Whether you are planning to host friends or enjoy a quiet bath before bed, adding soothing aromas to your home increases your comfort.
Clearly, winter is the time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life and nourish the soul. This can mean different things to different people, whether it’s time spent with the family, a brisk walk in nature, immersion in reading or simply contemplating a beautifully designed space.
