The days are getting shorter and chillier. It has never been a better time to stay inside curled up with a good book or watching a holiday movie. But, since we spend so much more time indoors in the winter, it is super important that our homes feel comfortable, toasty, and inviting. Here are a few tips on how to make your apartment at Flatiron District at Austin Ranch cozy and homey this winter.
Trending Winter Items to Create a Cozy Atmosphere
Consider pine, peppermint, cinnamon candles, and incense, or try classic scents like vanilla or mocha. Not only will you enjoy the beautiful aroma, but lighting a winter-themed candle is one of the quickest ways to make your apartment feel super cozy. The muted light will also provide your apartment with a gorgeous ambiance during dinner and once the sun goes down.
If you drape your bed, sofa, and recliners with warm and fuzzy blankets, you will always have one within reach for those especially chilly days. It's not just about being prepared, either. Furry, woolen or quilted covers look super inviting and comfy in a smaller space like an apartment. You can even knit or crochet one yourself for a fun winter project and create your cozy winter decor.
If you were among the many apartment renters that prefer hardwood floors or tile, you might miss the instant warmth that a nice thick carpet can bring, even if it is not your preferred style. Fortunately, you can warm your feet using a few ornamental areas and throw rugs to beautifully decorate your space while adding an extra layer of warmth. Your feet will thank you when adding this modern decor for apartment living.
Warm your Apartment with These Colors
Section off part of your kitchen counter and turn it into a hot cocoa bar with sunny yellow and burnt orange mugs, a flame red kettle, and all the trimmings, such as whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, sprinkles, chocolate syrup, candy canes, and everyone's favorite, marshmallows. Place each of these in festive green mason jars.
After all, what can be cozier than a delicious, warm cup of hot cocoa? Along with other trendy items for a holiday, it is a popular winter treat for kids and children at heart.
