So Winter is officially here! And that means snuggling up by the fire and drinking spice cider while reading a favorite book. If you’re like me, you love adding simple touches to your home to make it feel just a little more cozy. Here are some simple tips.
If you are lucky enough to have a fire place, you can actually light candles inside it instead of logs for a more Gothic/romantic ambiance.
If you don’t have a fire place, a decorative tray with a variety of candles can give the room the same romantic glow. My new favorite find for this season is the hearth candle which has one long wick for a more intense glow. I found one at target for about $30.
2. Furry or knit pillows and a faux-fur throw.
Texture is the key to cozy and adding a faux-fur pillow in a natural tone, or a knit pillow gives a warm texture to your couch without getting rid of your mat pillows. You can also cuddle up with the faux-fur throw while watching the snow fall outside.
3. Stoneware mugs.
Stoneware mugs remind me of a mountain retreat. There is something about drinking from these that makes me feel like I live in a cozy cabin in the Pacific Northwest. They are inexpensive and simple and they add a earthy-warm touch to your home when you set them on your coffee table tray.
