A cozy home is as much about the things you use to decorate and fill your home as it is about your state of being and the environment you cultivate within the four walls of your home. I have curated a list just for you, of my favorite cozy home tips and tricks.
Five Elements of a Cozy Home

5. Accent Lighting
Use Candles to Create a Cozy Feel
Anytime we are getting ready for company or if I am home cooking, cleaning, or nesting – I will light a candle. I always have a stash of my favorite candles on hand because I burn candles often, and you never know when you might want to light one to create that cozy home feel.
My absolute favorite candle comes from Urban Farmhouse Designs. Their signature scent is what my cozy home dreams are made of. Locally, I love Candle Queen candles. They are handmade in Leavenworth, KS and have a variety of yummy scents to select from to create that cozy feel in your home.
Using Throw Pillows to Create a Cozy Home
Throw pillows on a couch or chair are another cozy idea for your home. Pillows provide a cozy place to land or something to snuggle up with. They are also a super simple way to change up colors and textures (more on pillows in another post for another day).
Some of my favorite places to buy throw pillows are HomeGoods, Ikea, and World Market. At the most, I might pay $35 for a pillow I really love. Usually though, I try to stick to pillows around $18. I change mine out often, so I try to keep it affordable.
Cozy Throw Blankets
Throw blankets are basically one of the easiest ways to give your home that cozy feel. A soft, plush throw invites you to snuggle up for a movie or a good book. They offer an added layer of decor, and can be easily swapped out for seasons or as your style evolves or changes.
Cozy Rugs to Use in Your Home
Rugs offer a way to add a variety of texture, patterns, and colors, and provide another option for creating layers in your space.
A great rug can transform a room. Even in a space you may not totally love, adding the perfect rug can be just the touch the room needs by working as an anchor and bringing all of the pieces together. And they don’t have to cost a lot of money! There are a lot of really great places to shop for affordable rugs!
As far as coziness goes, rugs add warmth to a space. They add layers and texture and invite a feeling of ease in a space that feels finished. Feeling really cozy? Try layering your rugs to add additional texture to the space your working on!
Use Accent Lamps to Make Your Home Feel Super Cozy
A good lamp is the perfect way to create a cozy feel in your home. Lamps offer a soft light and allows for a comfortable relaxed feel. A great lamp light isn’t too bright, or too yellow. I love the clear glass energy efficient bulbs for our lamps at home. I have found them to be the best type of light for the lamps in our home.
