i love a cozy home during the wintertime. a cozy home has us settling in just a bit more when we're spending more time in than out.
today i want to share with you ways to create a cozy, inspiring winter home!
during the wintertime, you will find blankets & pillows in woven baskets & wooden crates throughout our home. i always purchase our wooden crates & baskets secondhand at thrift stores, estate sales & flea markets. you can usually find more interesting pieces secondhand than those found at the store.
pull those blankets you already have out of the linen closet & throw them in a basket or crate for added texture & a pop of color in your home!
i love this diy project from erin on making cozy pillows from upcycled sweaters!
i am a big texture & fibers person. when we're laying in the "sleeping room," near the wood burning stove, we love cozying up with a good book & relaxing. it's so important to have blankets & pillows that are soft to the touch.
even in the wintertime, we use summer quilts because they're easy to clean & so comfortable. the quilts we own are family heirlooms, made by me or if i am lucky, purchased secondhand at a thrift shop.
i absolutely love our sheepskin we drape over our couch for added coziness. i was fortunate to find that piece at a flea market years ago when we first married, but you can purchase them online (i would recommend a real sheepskin versus the synthetic versions).
also, if you're wondering, you can find the happy home pillow at tiny prints right here.
you will always find us, late in the evening, right here cozied up with our favorite books & a cup of tea.
how do you add coziness to your home during the wintertime? please share!
