Picture this: You're wrapped in blankets on a lazy Saturday, binge-watching your favorite TV show from the comfort of your very own Home Theater.

Here's how to make your own!

1. Room darkening window treatments...

We like to stick with neutral colors in a roller shade or top down, bottom up to provide excellent light control in a window covering that disappears on the window. 

Be sure to select the Blackout liner on the shade or hang blackout lined drapes.

2. A deep sofa with lots of pillows!

Insider trick: Etsy and Homegoods have SO many on trend pillows ready to take home today!

You can add interest by selecting pillows in the same general color but with different textures and trims.

Using a selection of pillows in linen, velvet, with tassels and embroidery will really brighten up the vibe. Different shapes will only increase the interest level!

3. Put your feet up!

Replace your Coffee Table with an Ottoman or cushion that you can put your feet up on.

Need both functions? Add a large tray on top of the ottoman for a hard surface when you need to set out a drink or your bowl of popcorn.

Remember to have fun with the process! Think about how you want to the room to make you feel, and who it will be accommodating.

Start today by looking around your house for elements that can be repurposed right away.
