5 Interior Design Details for Winter

November 6, 2017 1:39 am

Are you interested in adding a little seasonal oomph to your space? Below are a handful of cozy--and inexpensive--winter updates.

Cozy blankets galore. Nothing is better than a snuggly blanket on a cool winter evening. Drape heavier blankets over sofas, chairs, reading nooks, and even fold one up by the fireplace for stretching out on the floor. Just make sure it's safely away from the flames!

Gray space. The color gray is a winter staple. Swap out your fiery fall throw pillows for a gunmetal shade, unroll a deep gray rug in the living or dining room, or update your window coverings to gentle ash tone.

Candle craze. Soft lighting in winter can create a romantic, warm effect. Place candles around the house and ditch the harsh overheads as you settle in with that evening glass of wine.

Bring out your book lover. Stacks of books offers an inviting way to spend those chilly winter hours. Create attractive assemblies on side tables, shelves, inside your unused fireplace, or even in corners on the floor.

Wooden wonders. Adding wood accents to your home in the winter makes you feel like you're living in a ski lodge. Pile logs in the corner for fire (or simple aesthetics), add a rustic wood table by the sofa for setting that warm mug of tea. No table? Try a large, seasoned stump for some real rustic vibes.

Scam Alert! Avoid These Lottery Red Flags

November 6, 2017 1:39 am

Many of us daydream about winning the lottery - the cars we'd buy, the debt we'd pay off, the charities we'd support. However, don't get so caught up in your daydream that you get scammed.

According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, you're likely getting scammed if:
- If you are told to buy a pre-paid debit card in order to pay an up-front "processing fee" or taxes – this is a major hallmark of a scam.- If you are asked for financial information such as credit card or bank routing numbers.
- If the supposed prize is in pounds, euros, or anything other than dollars.
- If an email contains poor grammar or misspellings.
- If a call sounds as if it could be coming from outside of the U.S.
- If you are instructed to keep the news of your supposed "win" a secret.
- If you are told to call a certain phone number to "verify" the prize. Instead of calling it, look up the lottery's published number, call and ask to speak with security.
