Today's topic is how we make our homes cozy. Being cozy at home is one of my favourite things, it gets me through the winter.
Blankets - We often have several blankets on the couch so everyone can snuggle up to watch a movie or TV.
Fireplace and radiators - We live in an old home and we have the old fashioned hot water radiators. They give off such a nice heat. We added a fireplace in our living room this past year and we love turning that on in the mornings and evenings when we need that extra push of heat.
Lighting - I like side lamps and dimmed overhead lights; luckily the previous owners of our house put in numerous pot lights on dimmers in the living space. And everyone's room has a lamp in addition to the chandeliers.
Winter snacks - To me tea and popcorn is a cozy comforting snack. It works for warming your body and soul after shovelling snow, spending the day outside sledding or skiing, or just to watch a movie. I also like making an afternoon cup of coffee, or pouring a cozy glass of red wine, which to me, always taste better in the winter.
