Cozy Up Your Space for the Cool Weather

cozy living room area

We all have that one person in our lives that is either always cold and wrapped in a blanket or is always wearing a piece of clothing that is made of fleece. Some people love cozy vibes and we think it’s totally appropriate for this time of year. Your home can also be made super cozy and warm and we’re here to tell you exactly how to do it.


When used tastefully, candles can give a different aesthetic to a room, without putting in too much effort. They can make dim lighting feel warm, and if you change out the scents and colors, they can even appear festive. Candles not only change the look of a room, but can also change the overall mood, depending on what aroma they are. You can even use LED candles to save energy (which is always a plus!) and be a bit safer overall.

Throw blankets are a MUST in every household, in our opinion. Not only are they practical and serve a purpose, but they are super cute and liven up any space. Whether your blankets are in a basket, laid out on your couch or bed, or placed neatly on a ladder in your living room, throw blankets add a nice warm touch and can be used as décor, too. 

Boil fruits and spices on the stove.

Fragrance can really change the scene in a room and with the holidays rolling around, it’s time to get creative. For example, add sliced apples and oranges to a pot of water with cinnamon and cloves and simmer on low heat. Now wait for your entire home to smell amazing – you’re welcome!

throw cushions and pillows

Textured cushions and pillows.

We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have cushions and pillows in your living room. They provide extra comfort and can easily elevate your space. Cushions come in all shapes, sizes, patterns and textures and you can really mix and match them to create perfect cozy vibes for your home.

Switch your area rugs. 

We don’t know about you, but we love a carpeted sitting area to cozy up in while watching a movie or playing board games with family. Rugs are another element of home décor that can change the entire look of a space and are easy to switch up! Try swapping the rugs in different rooms temporarily, or even switching out your current rug for a new one and watch your area transform instantly.

Just writing this makes us want to sit on the couch, wrapped in blankets with lots of pillows around and enjoy a nice, warm hot chocolate. Making small changes in your space that make it feel cozier not only brings warmth while the weather cools down, but also provides a sense of comfort for your friends and family when they visit.
