How can you make your home more cozy? According to Good Housekeeping, lining your windows with garland is a fun way to add dimension to your home. They also recommend embracing neutral colors for your living space during the holidays. Red and green decorations are excellent as pops of colors, but going all in on them can make your room chaotic and noisy. Neutral colors will feel cozier overall.
Then, make sure you’re stocked up on soft blankets and pillows, per Sanctuary Home Decor. Blankets can be strewn over chairs or the backs of couches, as well as folded and sat in chairs or on top of side tables. In any case, having fluffy, comfortable pillows and blankets in abundance is key to achieving maximum coziness.
Being cozy requires all of your senses to be aligned. Therefore, you should make your house smell like cozy Christmastime. Invoke scents of pine, cinnamon and other warm spices, cranberries, oranges, and more for a relaxing feeling (via Country Living). This can be done with candles, wax melts, or by simmering ingredients on your stove.
Finally, if you want a DIY project for yourself or to share with the family, you can gift wrap some books that you have laying around your house. According to Good Housekeeping, the gift wrapped book look is chic, cute, and cozy if they’re scattered throughout the living room. It’s a nice touch full of holiday cheer.
