5 Ways to Cozy Up Your Home!
It's that time again! The air is getting cold and the leaves are turning colors... The SECOND the temperature drops we break out the hot chocolate & all things cozy and warm! We dress ourselves in snuggly scarfs and sweaters, so why wouldn't we cozy up our home too?! Here are 5 ways to transform your home into a warm & cozy oasis.
1. Throw Blankets... EVERYWHERE.
Literally... Put throw blankets everywhere... Fold one up horizontally at the foot of your bed, roll them up & display them in a cute basket, throw on the couch, keep one on the porch swing... We could go on & on.. The possibility of places to keep your favorite blankets are endless.
2. Mood Lighting
Yeah, you heard that right. Mood lighting! Turn on the string lights & light up the candles and fireplace for a sweet cozy feeling. Not quite cold enough for the fireplace where you live? Throw some candles in the fireplace, we are loving this look!
3. Hot Chocolate & Coffee Bar
Put all your favorite mugs on display and keep your hot chocolate and coffee easily accessible. Nothing makes you feel cozier than when your sipping on a hot drink.
4. Simmer Pots
Make your home smell like fall with an easy simmer pot in the kitchen. Here's our current fave:
5 cups water 2 navel oranges, peeled 1 apple, sliced in half 3 cinnamon sticks 3 star anise 1 teaspoon-sized knob of fresh ginger 1 teaspoon cardamom pods 1 teaspoon whole cloves 1/4 teaspoon dried orange peel
1. Combine all ingredients together in a saucepan and heat over low heat until simmering.
2. You can keep this going for a few hours, adding additional water when needed. You can also throw everything in the crock-pot and set it on low or high with the top off.
5. Festive Decor
Is there something still missing? There's nothing a little fall decor won't fix! Break out all that pumpkin decor & buffalo check print. Problem Solved!
...& just like that you'll be feelin' festive & cozy for the holiday season!
