7 ways to cozy up your home
There's nothing better than coming home to a cozy and inviting home. Sometimes all we want is to relax, have a cup of tea and enjoy time in our favorite cozy spot. I think you'll agree that it just makes us feel good and safe.
Do you have a feeling that something's just not quite 'right' with the atmosphere at your home? Or maybe you just moved into a new place and don't know where to start? Here I will share 7 ways to create a welcoming space and hopefully, you can try some of these things at your home too.
1. Create warm lighting
Each house has different lighting - look around your house and see how many light sources you have? Are the lights warm or cool? The reason why it's important is that lighting affects our mood. To create a relaxing and comfortable space, cool and flashy lights should be avoided. Instead use warmer bulbs, desk or floor lamps, candles, and string lights. You'll see how this simple thing can make a huge difference.
2. Get some plants & flowers
Bring life to your home with goods from nature. Go outside and see if you have access to any flower meadows or if not, go to your local flower shop and bring home some fresh flowers for no special reason. Put them in a nice vase and place them somewhere you think they look best. You'll see how suddenly the room feels different, happier.
You can have this feeling every day by getting some indoor plants. Place at least one in each room to have a positive feeling spread all around the house.

3. Invest in cozy blankets and pillows
There's no single home that doesn't benefit from having cozy blankets and pillows, especially when it's chilly outside. Placing a throw at the end of the bed, on a couch or chair will add comfort and relaxing vibe to your home. Add some fluffy throw pillows for extra coziness.
Imagine coming home from a long day, snuggling up in your cozy corner and wrapping around a warm and soft blanket. If you want to invest in long-lasting and high-quality products - merino wool chunky knit blankets are some of the best.
4. Keep your feet warm
Think about if you ever get chilly feet at home. This could be one of the reasons why you don't feel so cozy.

Nowadays rugs are super trendy and not only keep your feet warm but also enhances the room with personality, style, and warmth. Check out these super soft chunky knit rugs.
5. Change your bedding
Your bedroom is a place where you want to feel the comfiest. A great tip to create a cozy bedroom is to change your bedding. And what could be better than a fresh linen bedding?

Plus, linen bedding is good for a sound sleep as it is highly absorbent, hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial and temperature regulating.
6. Add natural scents
While strong and artificial scents for some people can cause unpleasant emotions, you should definitely consider natural scents. Do you love the smell of a spring day, fresh-cut grass or a flower field? It creates positive feelings and makes us feel good, right? This is why natural scents can be a great mood booster and create a more pleasant atmosphere at home.
