With winter just around the corner, we want nothing more than to curl up with a cup of tea and a cozy blanket. When you live somewhere with 6 months of winter, you learn to embrace the cozy life. Check out some of our favourite ways to get your home reaaaaal cozy.
Add Warmth Through Pillows & Throws
Switch out your pillows and throw blankets for textures like faux furs, velvets, knits etc. Swapping your pillow covers is also a more affordable option. If you want to bring your decor game to a whole new level, add plaid. Nothing says cozy quite like plaid and it's versatile enough to last throughout the fall/winter season. We also love adding a weaved basket with rolled up blankets to any space.
Layer Your Lighting
With the days getting shorter, lighting becomes more of a focus. The key to creating a cozy atmosphere is to layer different types of lighting. Adding a dimmer switch to your fixtures helps to create mood lighting. Add different types of lighting like table lamps and floor lamps to create an oh so relaxing space. If you currently have cool white lightbulbs switch them out for a warmer and softer bulb.
Embrace Natural Elements
Bring natural elements indoors, whether it be a wooden tray on your coffee table or a wreath on your front door. Find ways to bring natural elements indoors. This is a great way to add warmer colours and texture to your space.
Find Your Scent
We're going real basic on you. Find a seasonal scent you love for your home. Whether you opt for a diffuser, make an essential oil mixture, or buy a new candle, scent plays a huge role in changing the mood of a room.
