How To Have A Cozy Home- 4 Simple Tips…..
Having a cozy home isn’t really that hard, but I do want to give a few points to help anyone. Especially if you want that warm, cozy, tucked in feeling. Even though we bought our forever home, take the tour HERE. I still wanted to find a way to make this space ours, and make it cozy, and a place to come home to. The phrase “HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS”, that really means something. I take those so literally and it weighs heavily with me, and tends to resonate a lot. On the blog I am sharing with you ways that you can make your home cozy, warm, and inviting for friends and family. You definitely want a cozy home all year round, not just around Christmas.
To be honest with you I was dreading Christmas to be over, because I love the twinkle lights on all the time. So recently I ordered the these twinkle lights HERE, and decided to put them around the room. It allows us to have some light in the room, but only warm lights. The best thing about these lights is that each are run by a remote (FANCY)!!!!
Cozy Tip #1 Twinkle Lights….
I like to add the twinkle lights to glass jars, and wrapping them around things to give the soft effect in the room. Which leads me to the next thing I am going to say, light a candle or two. (Create that #hygge environment).
Cozy Tip #2 Light A Candle Or Two…..
Candles are warm, cozy, and choosing the right ones can also give off the best scents. I love burning candles all over the house. But, when I get a chance to burn them in my cozy places it makes even more sense. Candles are so nice when they are being burned especially at night, and a good movie is playing. These are simple inexpensive things that can be added, and are easy on the pocket too!
Cozy Tip #3 Throw Blankets (Add Texture)…..
When we are making a space coy we have to add texture, and balance out the cozy factor. I love throw blankets on the end of my couches, hanging out of baskets. They are literally everywhere, and I created this feel for my home. I remember when I was young my mom had throw blankets on her couches. I soon figured out why, at those times and moments her toes were cold. She would say that so often. (I miss my girl)..
Adding in those baskets, woven blankets, and rugs all play a strong component in having a cozy home. My next step into making this home cozy, is going to be adding woven shades to my window treatments. The shades that are currently here, are your standard cheap builder grades shades. We will be adding woven shades to the windows to add more of that texture to the rooms.
The woven shades frame a window, and it automatically draws your eyes up which creates the cozy room you want.
Cozy Tip #4 Pillows and Plants, Load Them Up…..
Having lots of pillows and plants are a must! I love having pillows on the couches, some in baskets as you can see in previous pictures. Plants play a huge role in our home, and I actually wrote a post on plants here. Layering is huge when it comes to picking and choosing the right things to create, the right atmosphere. Your home is a place of refuge, and heart. It thrives off of the people that dwell in your home, what you put there to encompass the love that lives there. My pillows are actually getting ready to get an upgrade, and I am moving over to down pillows. I can definitely write a post on those, and share pillow tips too! I want this blog to be a place of resource, and teachable moments. Personally feel as though pillows should be meatier, and heavier.
Envision your home without certain things, COLD right? Well, these are simple things that can make that place yours.
