If you truly want to stay warm this season, you are going to need a bit of fleece in your life. Many people incorporate fleece into their existing bedding sets or around the home for extra warmth. Fleece blankets are common go-to items that you can place throughout various rooms should you get chilly (Land's End, $20).
Sometimes we need to feel warmth not just physically, but also visually. Mohair — or faux fur, for those who want an alternative — is a gorgeous textile for the winter season. Although typically in blanket form, you can create a textured wonderland with complementing accent pillows on your bed or in living areas (Restoration Hardware, $29-$49). A set makes for a great gift idea.
If you find that you aren't getting the necessary warmth with your current bedding, exchange it for velvet flannel bedding - it looks and feels glorious. However as velvet can get a bit pricey, for a more affordable option, choose a bedding set with a velvet-like feel to achieve a similar look and warmth (The Company Store, $79-$139).
Not all textiles have to come in the form of bedding, and leather is one of them. Notorious for its textural appeal, leather is a fun material to include in your decorating mix. Use leather (or faux leather) as accent pillows or even for your serveware, like trays and coasters (Mark & Graham, $45 for set of six). This is a fantastic way to introduce something modern and stylish.
Want to evoke the coziness of a rustic cabin retreat? Add animal skin. This is a great option for the design savvy to use in their current homes for winter style. You can place an animal skin over your existing floor textiles (it creates a wonderful layering effect) for enhanced visual warmth (Ikea, $199).
This is one of the main go-to winter textiles that everyone should consider for their abode. Flannel provides instant warmth and will truly keep you toasty during those blustery winter days. Add a flannel bedding set or throw you can place around your home (The Land of Nod, $69-$109).
There certainly is nothing wrong with transitioning cotton into the winter season — just make sure you up the texture. It's no secret that thicker knits give us an extra layer of protection when the weather turns chilly, so be sure to add a cotton knit blanket or two around your interior (Target, $40-$61).
Another component of the wool family is cashmere, a luxe textile commonly present during the cooler months. Lightweight and super soft in feel, this textile, here in the form of a hot-water bottle cover, adds much-needed warmth without heavy or excessive layers (Restoration Hardware, $59).
