Cozy Comforts

Unless you’re the abominable snowman, the lower the temperature gets outside, the more time you’ll be spending inside. Creating a cozy atmosphere that you can escape to is the first step to making your home the perfect winter retreat. From book nooks to soothing scents, we’ve got some cold-weather tips that will keep your home feeling cozy all winter long.

Cozy Little Corners

A book nook is a place where you can kick back, relax, and read your worries away. All you need is some sturdy shelving, a couple cabinets, the books themselves and the will to read. If you don’t have any wall space available, set up some free-standing shelves around a comfy chair or a good group of pillows.

Pro tip: Make your new nook the most comfortable corner in the house by keeping baskets of warm blankets nearby. Who knows, a strategically placed throw may just sway someone to reach for a book instead of a remote.

Automatic Aromatherapy

To create an atmosphere of absolute comfort in your home, start by stimulating your sense of smell! You can always light candles or warm some scented wax, but nothing awakes your senses quite like a high-quality cup of coffee. Luckily, you don’t have to drive to your corner café for that sensation; with at-home professional coffee systems, you can brew anything a barista can from the comfort of your kitchen.

Pro tip: If caffeine isn’t your first choice, try making some tea or hot cocoa in your coffee maker! Most professional coffee systems can make numerous drinks, ranging from extra-shot espressos to specialty hot chocolate. You can even pre-set your machine to brew a cup for St. Nick, if you’re feeling nice.

Colors of Comfort

When it comes to color, everyone makes their own unique associations. But at every color’s core are emotional nuances which makes picking the right paint of primary importance when creating a cozy space. Blue, green, and purple are all shades that provide tranquility: blue brings a sense of calm and ease into a room, green has a strong emotional connection to safety and stability, and purple evokes romance and nostalgia.

Pro tip: Finding the right kind of light is key to bringing out the best in those comfortable colors! The right bulb will accent your areas without shining too bright. CFLs (Compact Florescent Bulbs) with lower temperatures emit a soft light that will light up your walls and set a cozy tone in your home.

Warm Wood Stoves

Heating up by the hearth is a winter-time tradition. If you are fortunate enough to have a wood burning stove, you know the feeling well. And although they are extremely practical, wood burning stoves typically aren’t the prettiest piece in a room. To make your stove a centerpiece and not an eyesore, lay some decorative tile beneath its feet or on the surrounding walls. Not only is tile beautiful, but it is excellent at retaining heat, especially darker colored tiles. That means less money spent on energy costs and more cash come Christmas time!

Pro tip: Steer clear of dry skin this winter by placing a tea kettle on top of that wood burning stove of yours! Not only will you be able to stay toasty by the fire, but you’ll also reap the benefits of a self-made humidifier, keeping your skin soft and body cozy.
