photo collage for cozy home

 

The last months of winter can feel ho-hum.  And even though it’s the last months, it often feels like  real winter is just getting started!  But you don’t have to let that get you down!   Make the most of of these lingering winter months by making your home a sanctuary!  Create a peaceful, cozy environment in your home that helps you rest and rejuvenate!  

 

In our subscriber email, I shared some photos of the Southern Discourse Cottage and a few ways I like to fluff our nest during this time of year.  Here, I’m sharing an easy buying guide so you can fluff too! 

 

Never underestimate the power of textured pillows and throws.  We keep plenty of them around.  A little bright color is a great pick-me-up.  Also, texture is a must for cozying up any environment!  Don’t forget the candles!  And not just the smell good kind.  Battery operated pillar candles with built-in timers ensure there are no more dreary afternoons! And last but not least, a little greenery!  A wreath brings a little of that green of spring to the heart of winter.  Did you think wreaths were just for outside?  Try hanging one on the inside of your door, in a window or over a mirror.
