It’s the middle of winter now, and many of us are hiding in our cozy homes from pale colors and cold of the winter outside. If you feel that your home isn’t cozy enough, you can easily add some in just a couple of minutes, I’m going to share some ways to do that.
Open layouts are everybody’s love but large open space in the winter seem cold and unwelcoming. Arrange furniture to get a couple of cozy nooks, and screens, shelving and furniture will help you to organize that. The simplest and most popular idea here is using a window sill if it’s big enough, to sit or lie on it – just put some pillows and blankets on the window sill and voila! If there’s a radiator inside, it will be even comfier.
Not enough warmth? Add warm and cozy textures, for example, faux fur or chunky knit. Wool blankets, comforters, plush pillows, furniture covers make even the coldest room cozier and more inviting. If you choose large items, keep them in neutrals, if these are small ones, try bold shades for a harmonious look.
Winter Neutrals Or Whites
White or warm neutrals are very wintery-like, so use them in décor, they will definitely create a mood looking cozy and chic. They won’t make your interior colder, they will just give it a winter feel making it cozier than before.
Lights are necessary for creating a mood and adding coziness but nothing can be better than candles! Candles in all types of candle holders and in your faux fireplace are right what you need in the winter and actually in any other season, they are always actual. Find or make candle holders that match your decor style or make a faux fireplace to display them and imitate fire, you won’t regret that!
Comfort and coziness isn’t about just a pleasant look, it’s also about smells. What can bring coziness in the winter? Warming up and spicy flavors like cinnamon, coffee, herbs, citrus and other stuff. To bring them to your home you may use aroma lamps or just candles, and if there’s no smell you like – make your own candle! Pomanders have an amazing smell, so don’t hesitate to use them for decor and just a cool look.
