As the days become shorter and a cool forecast looms on the horizon, it’s time to move indoors. The transition into winter is the ideal time to prep your nest for the season of family gatherings and stylish soiréescreating warm inviting rooms with accessories, textures and tones. 
Starting with the shared spaces, adorn your windows with thicker curtains insulating any room with a dramatic, elegant touch. Cozy up the lounge area with accessories, adding decorative Silk Velvet throw pillows in Bordeaux or Fawn for pops of rich color. And for the centerpiece of any gathering, dress your holiday table with an Amethyst Olivia Tablecloth draped over Linen Whisper in Champagne for a timeless setting to compliment each delicious meal. 

The perfect place to find refuge from the cold is in the bedroom. Sateen sheets in seasonal hues provide a base of color. Layer on the warmth with a Duvet Cover that expertly couples Satin and Velvet, a Personal Comforter in a ravishing patchwork of textures, and top it off with Shams and Throw Pillows in Quilted Silk Velvet for jewel colored accents. Bella Notte designs pieces that build upon each other perfectly, pairing indulgent beauty with functionality to create an inviting and intimate sanctuary.

When asked about the design aesthetic in her own home this holiday season, Bella Notte designer Kathleen McCoy shared, 
"[It’s] always pretty eclectic—urban with a vintage influence. I have dark wood floors, white walls, neutral furniture with a lot of color pop in the accessories and art. But I’m especially excited for my Fall bed—a mix of Perfect Peach and Bordeaux in Celeste and Silk Velvets."
