Once the winter settles in, your home becomes the place where you spend most of your time. Adding cozy elements throughout your home, helps it feel more inviting to you and your guests. Here are some easy tips to adding a bit of cozy feeling to your existing home decor.
Display Family Photos
Hanging family photos in a variety of ways all around your home gives you the feeling of comfort and familiarity. Make use of an often overlooked area of your home by hanging pictures in frames of multiple sizes in a corner of a stairway or room. For a vintage twist, hang Polaroids on an accent wall.
Put Seating in the Bedroom
Adding a place to sit in the bedroom makes you want to curl up with a book or lounge for a few extra moments in the morning. Check out stores like West Coast Living in Thomasville for some cozy seating options. Consider adding a soft, plaid throw to your bedroom seating for even more of a cozy feel.
Create a Nook
Push a sofa or twin bed up against a wall or window and add a ton of pillows in a variety of colors and textures. This makeshift nook is perfect for reading, lounging, or hanging out with family and friends. If your nook is against a wall, hang some eclectic art pieces or a large family portrait there to make the nook a focal point in your home.
Use a Variety of Soft Textures
Pile rugs with different textures on top of each other for extra coziness on your feet. When choosing furniture, go with couches and chairs you can sink into, plush ottomans and benches, and floor pillows. Use soft textiles for decoration, as well, by framing art in fuzzy material and displaying blankets as art.
Create a Warm Glow in Your Home
String lights are an easy and cost-effective way to add a yearlong glow to your home. Hang some string lights around a comfy piece of furniture, such as a couch or bed, or string them up over a cozy nook. If you have a fireplace, simply light it up to give yourself that feeling of coziness whenever your need it.
Adding cozy elements to your home is an easy way to make your house feel like a home. Soft textures, comfortable furniture and warm lighting help make your home a place you cannot wait to return to at the end of the day.
