There’s no other time of year like Christmas for feeling all warm and cozy inside. All the festivities, family, and food make it such a special time of year. We look forward to Christmas for months and even start playing Christmas music in November. Yeah, we’re those people. And as soon as the Thanksgiving dishes and decorations are put away I start getting the house ready for Christmas.

I love it when someone says that our house is cozy, especially during the holidays. Making people feel like they can relax and enjoy themselves is something I strive for. And there are some very simple ways to add a cozy feeling to any home.
Today I’m excited to be teaming up with one of my favorite stores, Pottery Barn, and sharing 5 easy ways to make your home more cozy. Let me know which idea is your favorite, and feel free to leave any additional ideas in the comments.
1. Add a soft, fuzzy throw blanket to the bedroom
Snuggling up under a soft warm throw blanket is one of my favorite ways to feel cozy during the cold winter months. I love to cover up with this plush faux fur throw and read at night before I go to sleep. Sometimes on chilly nights I pull it up over the blanket while I sleep. It’s unbelievably soft and fuzzy.
2. Little decorative touches throughout the house
The red velvet ribbon and the old worn books add character and texture and make this night stand super cozy.
3. Make the front porch welcoming
Adding Christmas decorations to the front porch adds instant charm to your house. Whether it’s with wrapped boxes, greenery, or and old sled, it’s a wonderful way to greet your guests.
A homemade wreath made with fresh evergreen clippings is a great way to add even more charm to the setting.
You just can’t go wrong with cookies any time of the year, but especially at Christmas. Set out some vintage silverware and kitchen linens to add a an even cozier vibe to the setting.
5. Hot cocoa
Turn up the cozy factor with some hot cocoa served in cute, whimsical Santa mugs. We all love to sip cocoa from these fun mugs.
Set out marshmallows, peppermint sticks, and chocolate chips and you’ve got a perfect hot cocoa bar.
6. Add soft pillows and throws to your sofa
Our faux fur trimmed velvet pillows and the faux fur throw make this the favorite spot in the family room for movie night. Although it’s so comfy here that it’s easy to fall asleep and miss the movie altogether. That’s usually a sacrifice I’m willing to make. 🙂
