It can help to create a warm atmosphere. Try choosing woody aroma for diffusers. Scented candles can help in warming a room. Scented sticks in fragrances of cinnamon, rosewood and sandalwood are soothing and are the best inviting aromas.Image credits: www.stoneranthems.blogspot.com

Proper use of rugs, blankets
Place all heavy rugs and blankets in living and bedrooms. Try covering a bare floor with a thick rug so as to make that space look warmer and comfortable.Image credits: www.decoist.com
Swap all those pastel shades with darker tones, as bright and dark colours are full of warmth. For winters, pick fabrics such as velvet, cashmere, wool or faux with brighter shades, floral or strip prints, over-sized geometric designs for rugs and cushions. Cosy up your couch with a plush throw or wrap the seat cushion with faux fur.Image credits: www.shadesoflight.com
