10 Cozy Home Decorating Ideas

When the temperatures plummet, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for a beautiful home. Here are 10 cozy home decorating ideas to keep you warm as the temperatures drop.

1) Add texture – pillows and throws in nubby knits and faux fur invite anyone to curl up. Down filling doubles the cozy factor. Even a porch can get cozy like this one from Liz Marie Blog.

2) Display textiles – take those quilts out of the closet and keep them within easy reach or stack them up on top of an old chest for instant warmth.

3) Area Rugs – warm up any space by either laying a rug on top of a cold wood or tile floor or by layering one on top of wall to wall carpet. Matters of Space added warmth with shag.

4) Curtains – When the ice begins to cling to the windowpanes, it’s time to try out a fun fabric and hang a couple of panels over bare windows.

5) Extend tablecloths – a fabric in burlap like this one from Mimzy and Company or a simple drop cloth that skims the floor adds sophistication to any wintertime dinner celebration. Go an extra step and layer a flannel blanket from the thrift store on top.

6) Bedding – A down comforter, flannel sheets and a few extra pillows to prop you up with a good book before bed.

7) Books – Fill bookshelves like these from The Art of Doing Stuff, pile them high on a coffee table or add a few of your favorite reads to the guest room nightstand.

8) Reading Nook – I placed a comfortable upholstered chair into a forgotten corner in my sunroom and now it’s my favorite place to curl up with a good book. Add a small accent table or ceramic garden stool to hold a hot cup of tea. See more at Eclectically Vintage.

9) Go green – Put a fiddle leaf fern in a huge textured basket or create a terrarium inside for a calming effect.

10) Display what you love – the best way to warm up any home is to show off things with meaning whether it be a wall of family pictures, vintage yardsticks or a collection of bird houses. The colors of my vintage landscape wall add warmth to my living room.

  • I like the photos and tips, but I can't do the ferns in the corner - too 1970s for me!
