Winter is in full swing here in Western New York. Today I’m sharing my ideas for making the house cozy. It doesn’t have to be winter to use these ideas for all you southerners.
I love white lights. I love the way they warm up a room or an outdoor space. I keep a string of white lights down the mantle all year long. At night, they give off just enough light that you can turn everything else off. We have a strand strung across the backyard all year long as well. Something about looking out there and seeing the twinkle of the lights makes me happy.
Something that’s big here during the colder months is the fireplace. Nothing like a fire going to make the house cozy. In my dream scenario, I would have a wood burning fireplace. In real life, we have a gas one. It works well and really warms up the room and it’s still pretty to look at.
Ever see a photo or a movie with a room full of candles? There’s nothing like it. Add a few candles around for a warm glow. If you don’t want to use real candles because of small children or pets the flameless ones* are pretty and the give you a similar feel without the worry.
