Your home is your castle. It’s the one place in the world where you can escape from the rat race, take off your makeup, and let your hair down. You don’t have to see anyone you don’t want to or do anything you don’t like. Basically, if you want to draw the curtains and disappear into your own little hibernation cave, you can.
Here’s something worth considering, though. How “cozy” your home is will depend on you, and it will depend on what you do to maximize the features of your house. Maybe you live in an apartment, maybe you live in an RV, or maybe you own a palatial estate on a famous body of water that’s worth billions of dollars in perpetuity.
Whatever the case, decoration will be necessary, and the way you decorate will go a long way to how comfortable you feel. Certainly, your own comfort will be unique to you when it comes to interior décor. Some people like blues and violets, others like oranges and greens. Some prefer to go with seasonal décor over “static” decoration, and we do recommend that.
Calibrating Decor To Match Your Preferences
What works for you is going to differ based on what you like at a basic level. So when you’re trying to “cozy up” the premises, first think about what you really like, what you really don’t, and where the balance is. Next, look at what you already have, and what you need to pick up to see your vision come to life. You might need to make a list.
Once you know what you want, and what you need, it’s time to look at what you have to determine what you’re able to get. You’ll want to develop a budget. Sometimes what you’ll need to do is stretch that budget over a few pay cycles owing to cost. In other circumstances, if you’re alright with “used” décor, you can save money by shopping at the flea market.
Yellow or green, light or dark, one thing everybody seems to agree on when it comes to coziness is that you need somewhere you can curl up and relax, and you’ll want a few appropriate snacks.
For most people, this means a nice comfy couch with a few warm blankets and several kinds of hot cocoa for cold days. Also, a few floral arrangements clean the air and are pleasing enough to the eye they often stimulate relaxation.
Don’t Forget The Local Climate
If you’re in a hot region, the inverse of that may be a breezy area with some ice-cold coffee. So finally, whatever cozy moves you make, it’s a good idea to conform them to match your region. This is especially true when it comes to seasonal flowers. You’ll have different choices in South Dakota than you will in south California.
Flowers Generally Make Sense
Floral arrangements are some of the best choices for cozy décor, especially when they match the season itself. At a certain point, that’s a little bit archetypal. It’s easier to be cozy when you and your home are in alignment with the world around you.
So think about what you like, what you want, what you can afford, how things are, and the environment where you live. This will help you get the right “balance” on coziness.
