“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort,” – Jane Austen
Hello to my Lovely reader,
Welcome back! Hope you had a great week.. 🙂
It was great to have you in our last Blog-post on 16 Best Home-Decor Gifts for Interior Lovers, also thank you for all your love and support !! 🙂
After all the hustle and bustle outdoors, we look forward in having a warm and cozy indoors to take the day off. Nothing can make winter more enjoyable than grabbing a blanket, sipping on hot beverage and reading a favorite book or catching up on series. This season we are already on a pocket pinch to think of adding elements in our homes, as checking off those items on holiday’s gift list becomes our priority. But Hey! There are tricks we could use to achieve the desired feel for our home on a budget !!!
I have put together a list of items that you may already have in your home or ones you would not regret investing in 🙂
Let’s Begin ..
1. Add a Throw blanket and pillows
These are great for visual layering indoors. Blanket could be placed on the back of a chair, on arm rest of a sofa, footstool or simply resting on a basket beside the seating arrangement. They are warm both aesthetically and functionality wise.
Have some pillows for added comfort and texture to the space. Textures play important role here, choose faux-fur, velvet, knitted cushion covers to achieve the warm and coziness factor.
If you are looking for some options for above I have selected few versatile pieces that will go with any theme.

2. Add a Rug and throw in some Floor Cushions for additional seating
Rug is one texture you would want to touch, it brings in the warmth and comfort to any space. Rugs are meant to keep your feet warm during the cold days and even in general having it around, levels up the space overall.
Add some floor cushions that will increase your seating in the space and teamed up with rug, blanket, book and hot beverage nothing else is needed!! 😉
A cozy nook that you would never wanna leave !!
3. Lit up candles
This is undoubtedly, a known trick to all around the world, but just as we are talking of warmth, winter, holidays, we can’t miss out on mentioning this one. These are the mood setters for home and are pocket friendly.
Tip: You could use saucers or coasters as for your candle base if on a budget. 😉
4. Layer up your linens
Yes!! It’s time to go all out there and have your bed layered up for adding the required cozy feel to it. Leave it a little messy to have that inviting feel to it than all crisp and clean.
Have your pillows, cushions and comforter all laid out for a fuller bed look, it visually adds the warmth to it and once in it, coziness factor hits in hahaha.. 😀
5. Pay attention to lighting
Lighting is a very vital part in interiors that can help achieve desired ambiance in any space. Most of us have ceiling lights as the only light provisions made in our homes. You could invest in floor lamps and table lamps with dimmers to have a control over light and ambiance. Choose warm-tone light over cool-tones, to achieve the desired feel indoors.
6. Introduce Art
Art adds depth and character to any given space. Give a personal touch to your space and make it appear more cozy and lived-in. Hanging pictures and art on wall makes it look put together, as blank walls seem too flat (or let’s say cold ?).
Having interesting collection of posters and pictures will surely create interest and add to the ambiance, also these are extremely inexpensive, with many printing options around and ready art available online to choose from.
7. Place an arrangement of Flowers
This is quite obvious! Just like the candles, to instantly make the space look cozy and put together at the same time get a collection of your favorite flowers put in an arrangement and display it !!
Flowers bring in vibrancy and natures beauty to a room making the space look fresh and welcoming. 🙂
And there you have it !! Cozy home Checked !!
Note: Many items mentioned above are generally found available at home, its just the arrangement of the same to create the look and feel desired. 🙂
Small details matters a lot in totality, to achieve a certain look for any given space indoors. A cozy living space is achievable and affordable too, just keep in mind the basics, soft fabrics, warm tones, lighting and you are good to go!!
A cozy Home you’d never want to leave!! 😉
Hoping these gave you some ideas to turn your home cozy this winters!! <3
