How can I get this custom made type of precast concrete fireplace surround? - I don't know who to ask, or where to get this type of fireplace and would greatly appreciate any help. I've been struggling with what to do with my fireplace for 2 years. I have a similar room with similar windows on each side in similar wood. And I think it looks great. Thank you »
Slipcovers - I was looking for information on where one can have sofa slipcovers made. Your recent article on using white slipcovers for furniture was great and inspiring. Now, I'm curious to know about some alternatives to get them made or the best way to get them made. Thanks! »
Layers. This step is key, and fortunately it is both affordable and easy. Start by simply draping throws over your furniture — not only will they come in handy when you want to curl up on the sofa, but they’ll continue to warm the space while you’re away.

This may be the picture I've seen featured the most on Houzz over the years, proving the timelessness of cozy done in a beautiful way. Fireplace, slipcovers, autumnal throws and a seagrass rug add layers of comfort.
Integrate throw blankets. Bring them into every room where you like to cozy up on a sofa or lounge chair for reading, gathering and watching TV. Drape them over furniture and keep extras in a trunk, window seat bench or drawer.See a slew of stylish ways to leave throws out in the open
Of course, there's no law that says you have to double up on end tables if the look doesn't jibe with your space. A single tray table at the far end of this sofa preserves the inviting openness of the room, and the arrangement is evened out by the folding table that sits on the diagonal across from it.
