If there’s anything I’ve learned from moving to the Midwest, it’s that having a cozy home is important. Maybe it’s not the move. Maybe it’s just wanting to have a cute home! There’s nothing like snuggling up on the couch and being so comfortable that you could fall asleep right there. With winter in full force, there is no better time to spend a little time focusing on where you’ll be spending a little more time the next few months: indoors! Here are my tips for how to decorate a cozy home!
After chatting beauty, style, and 10 random things this move to Chicago has taught me, it only feels right to talk about home decor. Especially since Midwesterners spend a lot of time at home during the colder months. So let’s talk ways to make your space visually appealing so you’re not sick of it by December! After all, having company over and hearing them say your home is like something off of Pinterest really makes a girl feel good.
This is big guys! I finally incorporated color into our home! As a self-proclaimed lover of neutrals (have you seen our master and guest bedroom?), this was a step slightly outside my comfort zone. However, once I saw these blue pillows in our living room, I saw that I’ve clearly been missing out! How perfect are these shades of blue for spring?
A month and a half after the move, we finally have a living room!! While I can’t guarantee any other room is put together, I’m thrilled to share this part of our new home! If some of the items look familiar, that’s because they are (see our first living room reveal here). We brought our favorite pieces from Ashley HomeStore with us to Chicago. With fall in full swing, I wanted to do a little refresh with accent pieces to show how easy (and affordable) it is to transform your space.
After many nights of being used as your husband’s footrest, you start to realize the importance of having a comfortable couch. The constant shifting around while binge watching House of Cards and Downton Abbey is just too much. At least, it was for me. So, we got rid of our sofas entirely and I went to work redesigning the living room with Ashley HomeStore! We definitely had no place to sit for a few weeks but on the plus side, the open space was well utilized for my clothing and incoming blog packages. See here for my feature on their blog too!
