Getting Your House Cozy for the Colder Weather

By Meta of One More Mushroom

I really enjoy the different seasons, especially when it’s cold outside and the leaves begin to change color. There is something so inviting about being home, curled up next to the fireplace with a blanket and a warm drink while the weather is blistery outside. Growing up it was very important for my German mother to make our house cozy, or “gemeutlich”.

Here are a few things you can add to your home to get it ready for the cold weather…

Softer, warmer colors (in the rug or accessories), knit blankets or pillows, a few natural elements (firewood or a woven basket), a sheepskin rug or two. It wouldn’t be complete without something warm to drink, (my favorite is Marzipan dark chocolate).
