When the days are getting shorter, candles provide much needed light and warmth in our homes. So for some serious winter coziness, fill your home with candles in all shapes and sizes. For an even cozier feel you can opt for scented candles. The smell of sandalwood or pine trees will fill your home with the delicious scents of winter.
Ceiling lights might provide your room with the necessary light, but to create a cozy vibe you have to place several smaller light sources around your room. The effect of light in your home is often underestimated. The right placing of lamps, the amount of lamps and the brightness of your lamps all have a major effect on the ambiance of a room. Experiment with placing smaller lamps in different spots in your room to see which placement creates enough light while creating a soft and cozy vibe.
3. Natural fabrics
Winter is the season to surround yourself with fabrics that are soft to the touch. Your skin has a lot to endure in winter, so treat your skin to fabrics that feel good by opting for linen upholstery or linen bed sheets.
4. Personal touches
A house becomes a home by its personal touches. Opt for art that you love, put up pictures frames with pictures of loved ones and happy memories and display objects that you really love. Never forget that your home is not a showroom, but a place for you to relax and unwind. Especially in winter it is comforting be surrounded by things that you truly love and that you have chosen with care.
Pillows, blankets, cushions, blankets, tablecloths and rugs: fill your home with fabrics and textures that feel nice and compliment each other, such as wood, linen and velvet.
6. A reading spot
Winter is a great season to curl up and take the time to read a book. So invite yourself to pick up a book more often by creating a nice little reading spot with a comfortable chair, a blanket and lighting that is easy on the eyes.
