Warm and Cozy

It’s that time of year again when we live to hibernate indoors with a good book and a hot coffee. This is the perfect time to make your living room cozier by adding more warmth! Whether you want to invest in cozier furniture or just add subtle changes around the room, here are a few ways to add more comfort and warmth to your space for the winter.

Whether you have a gas or wood-burning fireplace, the warm ambiance created when they are lit is second to none. This fireplace at my cottage is surrounded by a rustic charcoal stone veneer from Merkley Supply Ltd, and is flanked by contemporary styled wing back chairs. If you do not have a fireplace in your space, pillar candles provides a similar effect and a nice warm glow to any room.

 Add a nice warm fuzzy throw blanket or pillows in wool or velvet on a plush oversized chair, perfect for a cozy reading retreat. I love this wool cave chair from Elte! 

 A textured area rug in your living space or bedroom is not only a sharp addition to the space, but also provides a nice place to warm your toes first thing in the morning.


This is my Australian Labradoodle Herschel’s favourite spot to curl up on a cold day and luckily this American Leather sofa from MY Home is the same shade of chocolate as him! This handcrafted wool snowflake pillow that I picked up on a recent ski trip in Austria provides contrast as well as meshes with the winter theme.

Remember to have fun in the snow and then come inside to enjoy your warm and cozy space. – Michelle
