Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
I am so excited to share with you the beginning of my decorating in a Christmas Home Tour, and I have joined 14 other amazing ladies, so make sure to check out each of their gorgeous homes at the end. Today I am going to show you how to make your space cozy for Christmas and everyday, if you have followed along for a bit you know thats my favorite thing to do in my home, is to make it cozy!
First a fire is a must to make it cozy, if you don’t have a fireplace an electric one is a great option! We built this one, and added an insert but have a similar one in our family room if you use this link. The kids love to have hot cocoa by the fire.
Can you spot whats different??
I layered a rug to make my space cozy
I turned on a candle
Turned on the twinkle lights in the Grandin Road greenery.
Changed my photo on my Frame TV
Add some blankets and pillows = instant cozy!
I just love this view, and have a whole blogpost sharing all the links for my favorite finds from Bed Bath & Beyond.
I still have some finishing touches I want to do in this space, but I wanted to show you the simple touches of green.
Nothing says cozy more than baked goods, and I think its about time to get busy in the kitchen and make some!
Now, what may seem like a simple thing adding twinkle lights to a space is instant cozy no matter how big or small!
I just adore these ornaments from Arhaus and they will be in my collection for a lifetime! They are SO gorgeous and something that will never go out of style – just classic and so well made!
I shared the other day about the bells from Joann and how I showed you the colors we used, and what each color looked like.
I just love this glow at night, and I didn’t mention where these amazing stockings are from! Honestly I was going to buy some that were 5 times the cost …..then I ran into these and cut the red pom pom off each and unrolled one and there I go! I have my dream cozy knit stockings!
I didn’t mention along with everything else, the cozy blankets, pillows, twinkle lights, candle, fire… that a good book is always a must! Don’t you just love how gorgeous this candle from Arhaus is, and it smells even better in person!
I had to share a close up of these Arhaus ornaments, they are even better in person and so timeless.
