There are few things better than a cozy living room. Thats why if you want to make your living room nice and cozy we have a couple tips for you. Grab your favorite blanket, snuggle up and keep reading!
1. Space To Relax
One thing you want in your cozy living room is dedicated space to relax in. That means once you’re wrapped up in your warmest blanket you won’t have to move to get out of someone’s way or have people climbing over you. The last thing you want is to be playing musical chairs and constantly moving. Plan for your living room’s natural movement throughout the space. Don’t make it difficult for people to get in and out of the area while trying to relax.
2. Incorporate Color Layers
When we think of layers we instantly think throw blankets and pillows. These add the different textures and charm to the space which is definitely a fun part a cozy living room. Another way to play with the space visually is to use contrasting colors. We’re talking dark blue pillows on white sofa and vice versa. This adds a color layer that grabs your attention and pair with textures can create the ultimate cozy cottage space.
3. Use Natural Elements
Bring in natural materials such as wood, bamboo or jute to give the space that organic feel. These elements are tuned into nature and create a wholesome feeling in a cozy space. They add the character and dynamic traits that connect our bodies to the outside world.
It’s time to start breaking out the winter and holiday decor if you haven’t already. Halloween has officially ended so you’re in the clear. Since Thanksgiving is still coming, we won’t go full Christmas mode yet. We’ll just ease into it and start setting the mood for winter and holiday decor.
Whether it’s bright winter berries scattered about on the table or even a couple strands of garland can be the perfect holiday touch in your home. There’s no need to go above and beyond when it comes to decorating your home during the holidays. We aren’t saying that you should just put a few pine leaves out and call it a day, but there’s no need for all the mini Christmas village scenes or several nativity scenes throughout the home either – put that on hold for now. We are just warming up for the holiday season.
Hopefully some of these images bring you some inspiration and new ideas on how to keep it simple before you go full holiday mode on your home.
What’s Trending Wednesday
Space, space, space! We all want more of it. Whether it’s just an extra cabinet here or another bedroom and a yard there, a little more space never hurt anyone. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy which means we have to make the best out of what space we do have.
A smaller, or less desired, amount of space doesn’t limit design as much as you might think. When you are forced to get creative in a small space you tend to focus on what matters. In small spaces, it’s all about function.
A room designed with function in mind will transform it into a flowing, livable space. Strip down the design and decor to the bare essentials. When you keep it simple with the essentials you can start to build up the space or keep it simple.
Check out how these designers have used decor in smaller spaces and focused on the needs, not the wants.
This holiday season focus on the important things: friends, family 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 two very simple questions.
First question: does it keep me warm? If the answer is yes, then we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get warm with it. If the answer is no, we get rid of it. Simple as that. We’ll see it again when warmer days come back.
Second question: is it only socially acceptable to display/decorate with this during December without looking like a crazy person? If the answer is yes, then again we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get warm with it! If the answer is no, we do it anyway! Okay, maybe not, but I’m sure most of us would like to because Christmas time is best.
That’s all it takes. It’s 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!
What if someone told you that you could always be comfortable? Well, you can. You can always be comfortable, that is a fact. And what’s the best, easiest and cheapest way to stay warm this fall and winter? A nice, cozy throw or big blanket. Something you can snuggle up with and bundle the loved ones in to keep warm. Do yourself a favor and invest in a couple warm blankets and throws before you need one.
What’s the difference between a blanket and a throw? The difference is in size. Blankets are larger than throws. It’s that easy.
Stay warm and remember, never settle for anything that isn’t comfortable.
