Anyone else spend a good portion of today in bed wondering how it's going to be possible to step out into the cold? Even if the weather's warm right now where you live, weekends were meant for snuggling in bed and contemplating warm, cozy spaces. Scroll through the ideas found in these rooms — they won't actually raise the temperature, but they sure might make you feel a bit warmer today.
