5 Ways To Cozy Up Your Home for Winter

One of my favorite ways to add cozy to your home is by switching up your furniture arrangement. In the winter I move my sofa to face the fireplace which creates a cozier vibe. I also add extra seating because my family loves to warm up by the fire! This simple task of switching up your furniture placement can have major impact on how warm your home feels.

Lights & Candles

One of my favorite ways to add instant warmth and cozy vibes is through the use of candles and twinkle lights! These battery operated lights can be placed in jars or sprinkled on a shelf. They are perfect for adding a little glimmer and glow to a vignette. And I love that they are on a timer so there’s no need to remember to turn them on each time!

And to say I am a candle connoisseur is an understatement. I love candles all year long! I love that they can transform the mood of your space through the power of scent! Cinnamon and clove in the fall, pine and mint in the winter, fresh lemon in the spring and sweet florals in the summer are my go-to’s. Check out some of my favorites below!

Blankets and Throws

How To make your cozyBlankets are essential in the winter months to keep warm. Keep them close at hand so that guests feel welcome to grab one. I love this one we have draped across the back of the couch. We also have a basket filled with enough blankets for each family member, plus some. I love cable knit, faux fur, fleece and wool varieties. You can’t go wrong with a great mix!

Winter Whites

After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and all the bright decor that comes along with it, a neutral color palette is pleasing come January. I always revert back to winter whites when a new year begins. I think it helps me declutter and freshen up my space as well. With a neutral palette, you can get creative with textures. And little by little I will add in some color!

A great way to add interest without adding a ton of color to your home is through the mix of textures. I have sweater knit, wool, burlap, fur and feather textures in just this picture alone. And they are all in whites and creams. All these different fabrics add to the cozy and warm vibe in this room.

    I just love all the texture in your space and the gallery walls look amazing!

    Would you mind if I give you a shout out in the post I’m working on about grouping pictures (gallery walls). I would love to link my readers to this post via one of these photos.

    Also, I really enjoyed meeting other bloggers at the Friday friends parade LP. Thanks for hosting!! 😉
