Once Christmas is over and all of the festiveness is put away, sometimes our homes can be a little bare and cold.  It is also January which means the temperature is cold, even here in the south.  At this very moment, we are in the middle of a giant snowstorm/freeze that is making doing anything outside the home just about impossible.  Since we are stuck inside due to weather, it is so important to have a cozy and warm space.  

I love home decorating and love having a cozy home, so have been working on adding more coziness around my house.  

How to Add Cozy to Your Home

Cozy Home Ideas with leather couches - have a clean up routine.

Have a Clean Up Routine The number one way I like to keep my home cozy is keeping a clean home which is made easier by having a clean up routine.  This post has some good information to help you with that. 

Ways to make home cozy - light candles and make house smell good.

Pleasant Smells.  Once your house is clean, you can then make sure that it smells good.  I use all sorts of scent products.  I love burning candles, using a wax melter with wax melts (my fave ones come from Walmart) and scent plug ins from Bath and Body Works.  

Cozy Home living room with pillows and throw blankets.

Throw Pillows and Blankets.  I love to keep throw pillows on my couch.  Since I have leather couches, they can be a little bit cold.  But adding pillows warms them up.  I like to make different covers for my pillows with this tutorial.  

Cozy Home - basket full of throw blankets.

I like to drape cute blankets over my couch, in addition to keeping a basket (similar here) of additional throw blankets handy.  

Use lamps for cozy home.

Lamps and Lighting.  Listen to me when I tell you this, lighting is essential to coziness.  And we never turn on our overhead lights, unless we are vacuuming or have lost a contact lens or something.  lol.  My living room is kind of small, but I have 5 lamps in it.  I love the coziness of lamp light and really dislike to sterility of overhead lights.  

Cozy home - use timers on lamps.

I put several of my lamps on a timer so that they turn on automatically. These small timers are awesome and can be changed as the sun goes down later and later in the year.

Cozy Home add lights to furniture.

I also left a few strands of twinkle lights around my house.  I use these round globe lights above the cubby in my dining room and a small strand of white lights around my front window.  White lights are never out of style or out of season!

Add photos of loved ones for a cozy home.

Photos.  A great way to add coziness is to display photos of people and things that are important to you.  I do this in many areas in my home, but I am sharing just 2.  

For my living room, I made simple photo ledge shelves on which I display an array of our family photos.  

Display family photos for a cozy home.

On the built ins in our dining room, I display a whole bunch of photos of our extended family.  What can I say, I love being surrounded by my people in photos.  


Do lots of cooking and baking to make your home cozy.

Cooking and Baking.  The last thing I want to share to help make a cozy home is doing some cooking and baking.  Nothing says cozy like a crockpot of mac and cheese and a cookie jar full (or not full) of chocolate chip cookies.
