When it comes to winter, there’s pretty much nothing — except maybe cozy sweaters and peppermint bark — that gets me more excited about the season than the idea of having an acceptable excuse to stay in and hunker down, preferably under a really soft blanket with a really good book. FOMO? More like FOGO (fear of going out). I know; I’m super-cool.

If you’re a bookworm like me or you just want your home to be more conducive to cuddling, click and learn from the 16 spaces and products ahead.

A hint? Soft, fuzzy, furry fabrics go a long way toward making you feel like a regular living room or den is a place you actually want to lounge for hours. Oh, and plants and candles also add tons of atmosphere (just turn on the light when you actually read).
