A blanket in front of a fireplace is a great way to get cozy in cold weather, but it doesn’t do much for how your house actually looks. I mean, a fire going with mountains of blankets and fuzzy socks looks a bit messy, right? You can also stock up on hot chocolate and scarves, which are great for walks and seeing the neighborhood Christmas lights, but again, they don’t do much for making your home cozy. But, you can use them in a way to make your home inviting and welcome to get cozy in.
Take that hot chocolate and make a little station with mugs, spoons, hot chocolate, marshmallows. Make it a temporary institution in your kitchen through the winter because hot chocolate and movies are great memory makers!
Keep all of the coats, scarves, gloves and hats ready by the door. You never know when you’ll want to bundle up for a refreshing walk, or head out shopping.
Layers. Not just warm socks, a sweater, and a blanket, but adding a soft rug add layers to the room and makes it cozy and feel warm. You can go with something simple or find something fun and colorful that adds a pop of color and texture to your room. A shug rug in front of a fireplace is totally cliche, but it IS comfortable. Imagine everyone spread out with blankets, hot chocolate and popcorn for a family movie night. That extra layer from a rug adds so much!
