Easy Steps to Make Your Home Cozy for the Winter

It’s that perfect time of year to get cozy in your home! The winter season is upon us and with that comes chilly nights, fireplaces and cooler colors. If you’re on a budget like most of us, even the smallest touches can transform your home into that cozy winter haven.


Tips to Transform Your Home


Add candles with Earl Grey or Palo Santo scents and create an inexpensive table arrangement. Start digging through those cupboards. You’ll be surprised what you can use! Place together a collection of bowls or vases, then pick up a couple of bunches of flowers. Make things more seasonal with fruit like pomegranates or pears. If you are lucky enough to have a garden, there are all kinds of natural stems, berries and acorns at your fingertips to pick.


Have fun putting it all together! It doesn’t always cost a lot to create a feeling that is so inviting no one will want to go home. As you can see, it can be so easy to collect a mixture of vases and candle holders from around your home. Just adding a few bouquets of flowers from the local market helped to put together a simple, yet beautiful centerpiece for my dining table at home.


Pillows and throws will add an instant cozy feel to any couch. If this is the year to renew what’s old before friends and family arrive, try starting with some new accessories. Items like rugs and lighting can make a huge impact. If bigger things are on the list, look at a new dining table and chairs or that sink into sofa with chair and ottoman that you can curl up on.
