With the turn of the season, it’s time to refresh the home with chic and cozy updates that’ll make all of your holidays guests feel warm and welcome. Today we’re sharing our top five must-have items perfect for cozying up. Enjoy!
A Fur Pillow
Add a sense of warmth to your seating by replacing your linen or cotton pillows with warmer and more textured materials such as velvet, hair-on-hide, or fur (our favorite for the season, including some great faux options!). Fur pillows have a soft touch that’s so inviting and relaxing, and their plush figure adds a touch of glam to a living room or bedroom space!
A Warm Throw
There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book next to the fire with a warm throw blanket. This is a d’ecor item you’ll actually end up using-but it also makes your home look great when it’s tossed over the arm of your sofa. Choose from several warm and cozy materials, from a casual cotton-loomed throw to a warm wool alpaca throw blanket, to a heavy and luxurious cashmere throw.
Candles make any space feel a little warmer and cozier! Plus, you can choose a great scent befitting the time of year you’re celebrating. Fill your mantle with candles placed in romantic, country style candle holders for some winter woodland charm. Or if your design style is more modern, go with a sleek black, silver, or gold candle holder.
A Plush Rug
Softness and warmth underfoot is critical for when guests arrive for the holidays. Nobody likes cold feet on hardwood floors! Whether it’s a classic wool rug for the living room or even a sheepskin layering rug for in front of the fire, extra padding is a wintertime must!
A Nook for Napping
Our last tip for a cozier home is to transform a corner of your home into a cozy, wintertime nook. Add a bench or push a sofa up against the wall and layer with pillows and blankets!
