Decorating Diva

Cool, cozy home gear

Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space! Ready to hunker down for the winter? You might as well do it in style. We've rounded up 10 cool ways to stay warm until spring.

Knitted pouf

Knitted pouf

Put your feet up or simply perch yourself on this cute, cozy knitted pouf made from fabric remnants repurposed from textile factories (cb2.com, $90). The fabric is braided into thick ropes of varying colors to create the hand-knit cover, which makes for an eye-catching effect we love.

Hobnail candle holders

Hobnail candleholders

Is there anything that creates a cozy atmosphere better than candles? We don't think so, which is why we're adding these pretty lantern-style hobnail candleholders to our collection of hibernation must-haves (urbanoutfitters.com, $16).

Braided cable pillow cover

Braided cable pillow cover

Take your pillows up a few cozy notches with the help of these chunky cable-knit pillow covers, which are just as soft as your favorite sweater (westelm.com, $49). Choose from oatmeal (a gentle off-white), India ink (a dark blue) or platinum (a soft silver-gray) — or pick up all three.

Faux fur throw

Faux fur throw

We're willing to bet that your whole family will be fighting over this plush, ultra-soft and super-comfy faux fur throw in an elegant shade of gray (potterybarn.com, $99). Drape it over any chair or couch to add an instant dose of cozy comfort.

Floor pillow

Floor pillow

Add comfy extra seating and a bold splash of color to any room when you bring home one of these vibrant orange floor pillows, which we think would make a stylish addition to any collection of cozy hibernation essentials (cb2.com, $90).

Mercury glass jar candle

Mercury glass jar candle

While some scented candles can be too overpowering to be enjoyable, that isn't the case with this soy-paraffin wax blend candle with a subtle fragrance of tropical fruits and a sweet, citrus twist (anthropologie.com, $28). We especially love the gorgeous mercury glass jar it's housed in.

Shag rug

Shag rug

There's something about shag that just screams comfort, and we love the idea of adding one of these soft shag rugs to the bedroom or living room (urbanoutfitters.com, $109 to $329). Choose from several hues including red, teal (our favorite), green, gold and black.

Fireplace candelabra

Fireplace candelabra

Even if you have a fireplace, you might not always feel like starting a fire, but you can get the cozy, warming effect of those crackling flames with this splurge-worthy bronze finish fireplace candelabra made from wrought iron (horchow.com, $695).

Yellow teakettle

Yellow teakettle

No nest of hibernation would be complete without a kettle for making copious cups of warming tea, and we're partial to this bold, stylish teakettle in a sunny shade of yellow (crateandbarrel.com, $40). The retro-inspired design and stay-cool handle add to the overall appeal.

Cashmere throw

Cashmere throw

Stay warm in style no matter what the weather looks like outside the house with one of these luxe cashmere throws (restorationhardware.com, $185). Leave one in the spare bedroom for any overnight guests that come by, and keep one for yourself anywhere you want to get cozy.

Those pillow covers are so cute!! Love them, they look so cozy! I'm all about hibernating in style. Well, in comfort :) I'm always surrounded by pillows and blankets and have on warm, cozy socks at all times.

Wow, if I owned all of these items I would never want to come out of hibernation. I LOVE being warm, snuggly and cozy when it’s cold outside. I’m definitely liking the pillows and pillow covers. You can never have too many pillows in my opinion, especially during the winter.
