With the chill in the air and winter just around the corner, I find myself craving a cozier home feeling at this time of year. I love adding simple decorating touches to the house to make it cozy, warm and welcoming. Here are a few easy ways I use to liven up our space for the colder days, without spending too much time or money.
ADD THROW PILLOWS
Accessories are a great way to adjust to seasonal decor without fully committing or investing a small fortune. Adding accent pillows is an easy way to update any room whether it is just for the season or for even longer.
The easiest way to make a room instantly cozier and more comfortable is to add a few soft & cuddly blankets. Not only do they keep you warm but they instantly make a room seem more inviting and comfortable. I like to Keep a few in all the main room of the house, for easy access & instant homey feels.
ADD TOUCHES OF FAUX FUR
Playing with texture is a great way to make a room instantly feel finished & put together. Nothing says cozy quite like fur (faux fur obvi). Whether it’s a carpet, a throw pillow or a blanket, the fuzzy material will make your home nice and toasty for the colder days ahead.
Candles are the perfect options to shift the atmosphere and make any space more inviting, clean and smelling good. I love burning candles all year round, but as the season changes, I found myself craving different scents. My favorite smells to cozy up the house at this time of year ranges from burning firewood, tobacco leather, warm cinnamon, Pumpkin spice, crisp apples & sweet pears.
