I’ve come to realize our home is truly more of a winter house than a summer house.  Don’t get me wrong, I change the accessories to reflect the seasons and I pack the wool throws in the closet once spring arrives but I still believe the overall feel of our home screams winter.  Part of the reason is that the family room is painted red.

My husband and I love cool weather.  We are both native Southern Californians but we often joke that we could live in the Pacific Northwest, rain and all, without a problem.

My question is…do you think that since we prefer cool weather that I have subconsciously decorated for fall/winter?  What season does your home reflect?  Does it correlate with your preference for a certain season?

Does this room scream winter to you?
