Cozy & Luxurious Lake Homes

We’re deep in the heart of winter, and while the Lake area may not experience many feet of snow in the winter, we do still have a lovely winter season. Just enough winter to enjoy it, with some nice sunny days thrown in the mix! All the same, it’s still winter. Sometimes the days are cloudy, the weather is cold, and you just need a touch of cozy luxury to make the season feel warm and welcoming. Luxury homes at the Lake of the Ozarks are prime examples of beauty and sophistication, so we wanted to take a few moments to examine what makes them so exquisite during the cold winter months.

Let There Be Light & Space

Winter is darker than most months, due to the time change, and this can affect the mood in many ways. If you want to really make your luxury home feel cozy and inviting, you start with the lighting. Light and space can make any room feel open, warm, and inviting. Take advantage of your living environment by letting in lots of light (many luxury homes have large, gorgeous windows overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks!), and not overfilling a space.

Add A Natural Touch

Taking your decorating to the next level in the winter can be just what you need. Investing in those genuine, high-quality pieces made from natural materials can work wonders for space. Solid wood, natural stone, rustic accents, and warm wool can be the perfect way to cozy up your luxury home.

Oooh, Shiny!

No luxury space would be complete without some glitz and glamour. Gold, silver, and bronze all add a little extra to your space. Shiny textures can also make the space feel larger, and the way the light glows off of them can really add to the ambiance. Two or three thoughtful pieces are generally all that is needed to really add a touch of luxury.

Choose Comfortable Furniture

Luxury is all about comfort. It’s about finding that piece that makes you want to relax, enjoy, and rest. Part of the way you create that extra-special coziness in your home is through the furniture that you use. High-quality, classic pieces can really fulfill that need for warm and welcoming spaces. From large oversized chairs to warm, comfortable couches - the furniture is where you’ll find the cozy comfort you’re looking for this winter.

Luxury Textiles

High-quality textiles are the surest way to really make you luxury home feel cozy and warm for winter. Look for rich, luxurious fabrics, soft and fluffy materials, and even shiner surfaces. Velvet and mohair are very in this year, so add these fabrics in many different accents like throw pillows and warm blankets. Throw those warm, cozy feels into a little nook that overlooks the Lake, and you'll have the makings for luxury.

Make a Getaway

Think about that feeling you have when you first walk into a luxury resort bedroom. The bed looks so cozy that you never want to get out, the lamps are all turned on to create the perfect ambiance, and there are large drapes over the windows. The bathroom is large and spacious, with all of the luxurious requirements. A huge tub begins the spa-like atmosphere, and the warm towels all rolled up and displayed make for the perfect feel. Not to mention, that cozy, plush bath mat and spa-style robe and a pair of slippers are so inviting. This is what you want to create in your home during the winter months.

Luxury Homes All Year Long

While many people think that the million dollar homes at the Lake of the Ozarks are only summer destinations, it can also be appreciated just as much in the winter. The quiet sounds of wildlife can be heard and appreciate through the winter months, the temps are moderate, but it still gets cool enough in the evening to appreciate a good fire in the fireplace. If you don't own a luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks, NOW is the time to buy.
