Creating a Cozy Home

Creating a Cozy Home

I've noticed that the word used most often to describe our home is, you guessed it, "cozy" - and I couldn't be happier about that. There are a lot of beautiful homes out there, designed to perfection with gorgeous furniture and decor, but I don't think that always translates to a cozy space. To me, cozy means a lot of things - something that is comfy, lived in, warm, relaxing, happy, has good vibes, and is a place you'd want to hang out and relax. Cozy is down to earth, maybe just a little messy, and doesn't take itself too seriously. I wanted to share some of my tips with you for creating an extra cozy space - it's actually very simple and easy to do! You just need a few key pieces, most of which you probably already have lying around, but when put together in a little nook or corner, magic can happen. Keep scrolling for all the tips, and scroll to the end to shop all the pieces you see here for yourself.

Dresser Decor

Our bedroom is a constant work in progress - it's been rearranged and updated a bunch of times since we moved in 4 years ago. I like changing things up every now and then, and the evolution of this room is fun to look back on. Right now we have a beachy feel going on - Eddie's surfboard lives here, we have a huge wave canvas on one wall, and the little art prints above my dresser are illustrations of the ocean. 

My favorite animal is the fox, so we have a lot of them in our home. This little fox catch-all dish from Urban Outfitters was obviously a must-buy for me. Just lookit that punim. So cute! 

I can't get enough of Himalayan Salt Lamps - we currently have 3 of them sprinkled around the apartment and I'm thinking of getting more. They give off the warmest glow and they make me happy just looking at them. Same goes with air plants - instant happiness! How presh is this lil guy?!

My hand ring stand was a lucky find from Home Goods - I'd been looking for one with just regular outstretched fingers, but then I saw the A-ok gesture and was instantly obsessed. So much more fun! Also, thinking I may need to invest in another jewelry wall hanger... getting pretty crowded over there. See what I mean? Constant work in progress :)
