One of the best things about the holiday season is decorating! Don’t you agree? Each holiday brings with it its own set of colors, themes, images, and patterns, making it loads of fun to temporarily change up your space in honor of each holiday.
And one of the number one things you want your home to feel like during the holidays is cozy. You want the perfect space that allows you to curl up on the couch with a warm cup of cocoa, soaking up the most wonderful time of the year.
That’s why we’ve come up with a list of 5 ways to make your space cozy for the holidays!
1. Throw Blankets
Try to name a cozier item than a throw blanket. You can’t! Throw blankets are perfect to snuggle up in on a cold winter’s day, and they also serve as great design pieces. A neatly folded throw blanket tossed over the corner of a couch, or placed on a blanket ladder can up the cozy factor of your space, as well as the design factor as well. You can also easily change out your regular throw blankets for holiday-themed ones. Voila! Cozy, holiday décor for minimal effort.
2. Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are another great design element that can really increase the coziness of your home for the holidays. Holiday-themed pillow covers are easy to use and inexpensive to buy, allowing you to take your look to the next level. They may seem like a small thing, but they can make a big difference!
3. Custom Drapery
People don’t often think of custom drapery as cozy, holiday-themed décor, but the right window treatments can change the entire look and feel of a room. Plus, what a fun way to incorporate a specific color for the holidays, or a holiday-inspired pattern!
Changing your curtains is an easy way to make your space feel cozy and ready for the holidays. Maybe drapery with autumn hues and a leaf pattern would be a nice changeup for fall. Or perhaps you want to change your drapery out for a Christmas red, or a wintery white to encourage cozy winter vibes. Whatever you prefer, at Modern Floorz and Shutters, we can help you transform your space for the holidays into the cozy haven you desire.
4. Sentimental Décor
The holidays always make us nostalgic for past family traditions and treasured memories. Incorporate décor that makes you feel sentimental and nostalgic, and encourages you to reflect on what the holidays really mean to you. Maybe you even have décor from your childhood or sentimental pieces that have been given to you by loved ones. Put them in a place where you will see them often and can enjoy them to the fullest. Nothing is cozier than warm memories of holidays past spent with the people you love.
5. Seasonal Scents
It’s no secret that our sense of smell has a powerful impact on our emotions. That’s why holidays are linked to specific scents and flavors. So pick up a cinnamon broom or break out your favorite pine-scented candle. Whichever scent does it for you, be intentional about placing it strategically in your home. I guarantee your home will feel ten times cozier the minute you power up that diffuser or light that candle.
