A lot of the country is having winter cold and wet weather. The type of weather that makes you feel like staying home. Staying home curled up under a cozy throw with a fire going and a cup of cocoa in hand. Even for those of us who live in geographies with winter temperatures in the balmy 70’s we still have a chill in the air in early morning and night-time hours.
If you haven’t already, it is time to create a cozy get away in your home so you can enjoy staying inside more. Here are the basic elements you will need to create your personal ‘nest’:
- At least one amazing cozy comfy throw for the family room. The options are almost endless. Here are a few of our favorites, all on special sale now at Restoration Hardware
Function and decor beauty all in one!
- A stock of herbal teas and hot cocoas. Cost Plus World Market offers some great options.
- A well insulated mug to drink the beverages from
- Coasters so you can put the mug down on the nearest table without worry of damages.
- Scented candles (we enjoy Red Current by Votivo most!)
- Get all your lighting on dimmer switches to create what ever mood you want.
- If you have a fireplace, make sure to use it.
- A good supply of books and or DVD movies. Perhaps you will get a Nook or a Kindle e-book reader as a gift this Christmas. You can download your books and magazines without needing to brave the cold!
