This holiday season focus on the important things: loved ones, warm drinks and coziness. There’s nothing better than curling up with a warm blanket and getting extra cozy, especially during the holidays. We aren’t shy about our feelings when it comes to being cozy, we love it! But why not bring that idea to your home decor?
It should be easy when it’s cold and Christmas time is here. It’s an easy process of elimination and addition to get your home ready for maximum holiday cheer and cozy comfort. All you have to do is ask yourself these very simple questions.
Question 1: Does it keep me warm? If the answer is yes, then we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get warm in it. If the answer is no, then we get rid of it. Simple as that. Pack it up and bring it back out once it gets warm again.
Question 2: Can it be used as holiday decor? If the answer is yes, then we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get cozy with it! If the answer is no, we do it anyway! Okay, maybe not because there’s only so much space for holiday decorations, but you get the idea. If it isn’t serving a festive role then time to pack it up until the holidays are over.
That’s all it takes. It really can be that simple. Little effort, maximum result! Get your home more cozy and more Christmas-y with those two simple questions. Stay warm and don’t forget to have fun!

Get ready for a new year, a new you, a new project, a new makeover and everything else new! If you want to start will something small your bookcase is a great place to start! We have a couple little tips to help liven it up and get your new year under way. We’re talking fast and easy things that anyone can do. You don’t need to be a professional interior designer (it doesn’t hurt if you are) or need to spend tons of money to create a beautiful bookcase. All you need are a few of these quick tips incorporated into your bookcase and you’re on your way. So here we go:
- Start with color – A little color in your bookcase never hurts. This means painting the backs of your bookcase or only painting a square, or rectangle, to make it stand out. Another option is wallpaper. You can bring in patterns or textures if wanted.
- Display art – Your bookcase doesn’t need to only showcase books or small accessories. Use it to show off some art too! Incorporating art into your bookcase will give it some life and grab the attention of the eye.
- Add those accessories – Like the art, accessories give you the ability to have fun decorating the bookcase. They can be scattered around to give the bookcase a fresh look. These pieces will give the eye more to look at while scanning over the books on display.
- Don’t forget the books – Your bookcase obviously needs books, but what it doesn’t need is a uniform, linear placement of them. Your books don’t have to boring! You can have fun with your books and display them in multiple ways. Laying them down, or leaning a book, will bring new space to the bookcase that also allows you to decorate with your art or accessories.
We’ve got a few examples of some great looking bookcases for you to use for inspiration to welcome in the new year. Remember to play around with your bookcase until you find what looks best. Good luck decorating!
