Add interest and style to your space by layering your favourite decor accessories.

Layering can help add a homey feel to your space, making it both cozy and inviting. Perfect for those colder months (where much of your time is spent indoors), this decor trend will help showcase your favourite pieces while creating a warm and welcoming environment.

We've put together some of our favourite examples of layering from the pages of Style at Home to help inspire you to incorporate this trend into your space.
