As the months grow colder and the days shorten, the weather begins to hint that it’s time to cozy up in the comfort of your own home. It’s like the universe is saying, “time to hibernate” And let’s just say I’m not mad about it! In this blog I’ll be sharing ways to keep your home warm, comfy, and cozy in the midst of the cold and dark of winter.
- Warm and Fluffy Bedding
Snuggling up in the right bedding during winter is like wrapping yourself in a warm hug. The right sheets, blankets, and comforters not only add a touch of style to your bedroom but also play a crucial role in keeping you warm and cozy when the temperatures drop. I love using a fluffy comforter with a seasonal Duvet cover. If you want to keep it minimal and simple, try linen or cotton fabrics! Layering with soft, textured throws not only adds a nice esthetic to your room but also provides additional warmth. With the right bedding, you’ll transform your bed into a perfect winter retreat.
2. Seasonal Candles & Scents
Taking in the winter chill is a whole vibe when you bring out the seasonal candles and scents into your space. Just think about it, the warm glow of a cinnamon-spiced candle flickering in the background, filling the air with the nostalgic scent of freshly baked cookies or the yummy crisp aroma of winter pine. You can’t go wrong with either! It’s like an instant cozy upgrade. Seasonal fragrances just have this magical power that transports you to a winter wonderland. Tell me I’m wrong! I’ll wait… 🙂
3. Cozy Corner
Creating a cozy corner at home for winter is like crafting your own getaway for those chilly and gloomy days. Picture a snug accent chair nestled by a window, with soft blankets and plush cushions that are waiting for you to unwind. Maybe a small side table with a steaming mug of hot cocoa or your favorite winter reads. Adding a soft glow of fairy lights, floor lamp, or a table lamp adds a touch of ambiance! It’s not just about the physical elements; it’s about curating a space that invites you to snuggle in. So, go ahead, deck it out with your favorite throws, pillows, and watch as your cozy corner becomes the go-to spot for winter relaxation at home.
4. Hot Seasonal Drinks
Winter becomes an entirely different experience when you have warm and soothing drinks at your fingertips. Sure, heading out to Starbucks for your go-to drink is a treat, but there’s something special about crafting it at home, especially when the weather outside isn’t all that inviting. In my opinion, not all coffee machines are created equal. The Nespresso and Jura E8 coffee machines are personal favorites, bringing that perfect brew to the comfort of your kitchen. And if coffee isn’t your thing, a steaming mug of rich hot cocoa or a selection of seasonal teas can easily set the stage for a cozy night in. It’s these little homey rituals that make winter feel like a season of warmth and comfort.
5. Comfy Loungewear
Comfort is my ultimate priority these days, and that goes for both winter and the entire year, I know I’m not alone on this one! Can’t do without my lounge sets, soft pajamas, and slippers – they’re absolute must-haves for my cozy girl season! Whether it’s Walmart, Target, or Amazon, these spots are my go-to for stocking up on essential comfy fashion. Fabrics like velvet, cotton, or silk are my absolute favorites! Juggling mom duties means I can’t lounge under a blanket all day, but for a cozy day or night in, you’ll often find me in a fluffy robe – it’s my go-to comfort booster. And when the weather warms up, I switch to lighter robes for that same cozy feel without the extra warmth. Comfort is a year-round vibe, and I’m here for it!
