‘Tis the season to be cozy! The temperature is dropping faster than we’d like, and to help you combat the chill, we’ve rounded up some stylish home accents sure to warm you up as the cold weather hits.
There’s nothing better than cuddling up on the couch after a long day and wrapping yourself in a thick, warming throw. These ultra-cozy textured throws (westelm.com, $58) with full fringe come in a neutral colour palette of blue, ivory or slate and make a comfy yet stylish addition to your space.
Take a trip back in time to the ’70s with this cool retro pillow in super-soft shag (crateandbarrel.com, $41). The golden hue is perfect for fall, and the reach-out-and-touch-me texture makes for a cozy (and cuddly) addition to any couch or chair.
Nothing says cozy like a crackling fire, but not all of us are lucky enough to have a fireplace at home. Rather than lament the lack of flickering flames, invest in a small tabletop fireplace like this one (soothingfireplaces.com, $110), which can be used both indoors and out.
One of the easiest ways to create a cozy atmosphere at home is with candles. Add multiple candles, and you’ve got yourself the perfect antidote to the cold air outside. Light things up in style with this intricately designed wrought iron fireplace candelabrum (horchow.com, $350 to $550).
Create extra seating or just somewhere to lean when you’re watching TV with this chunky hand-knit pouf in graphite (CB2.com, $100). The sweater-like texture creates a cozy feel no matter where you put it, and we love the fact that the pouf is versatile. Use it as seating or a footrest.
Is there anything cozier than a pillow you want to hug? We couldn’t resist this adorable handmade penguin pillow, ideal for both kids and kids at heart (uncommongoods.com, $45). The plump, crocheted arctic bird makes for a playful addition to chairs and couches.
Faux fur rug
Say goodbye to cold feet this winter. Your toes are sure to stay toasty when you walk across this fun faux fur area rug (Etsy.com, $36). The thick and cozy white rug is hand batted and lined, and would add a warming touch to any room in the house.
Tea light holders
Add an instant cozy glow to any room by hanging a few of these simple but chic wall-mounted tea light holders (CB2.com, $3 each). Each hand-blown, heat-tempered holder fits one standard tea light and makes for an eye-catching addition to an entryway or dining area.
