Cozy….the very word conjures up feelings of comfort, warmth and relaxation. Intimate, snug, homey. How do you create this kind of welcoming space, in this case, in your living room? Here are some ideas. Also some Oscar fashion reviews.
Don’t these first few photos just make you want to grab that cover and curl up to read a book or take a nap? Ahhhh, cozy indeed.
In summary, use textiles, layer, accessorize with things you love to create a warm and yet happy space that feels lived in. Go all out for comfort. Lights and candles, are one way to adjust cooler colors. By the way, when using CFL or LED bulbs, use those labeled as having a temperature of 2700-3000K for a warmer light. Your home should be a place to revitalize and having at least one room that is snug and cozy can go to great lengths to allow us to feel safe, protected and relaxed, especially on a cold winter day.
Yesterday it was 73 and sunny. Our normal is mid 50’s. Today it is 30 and we already have 6 inches of snow on the ground. Yes, you read it right. Tonight it will go down to 5 degrees. It is crazy, crazy, and has been a crazy winter, following on the steps of a record rainy spring, summer and fall. I had planned on going out this week to do the pruning in the gardens that I usually do this time of year……oh well.
I do not watch the Oscars although I love movies and enjoy reading the results the next day. I do however love, love fashion and so I thought I would share a few of my favorites from this year’s red carpet. As always, thanks for stopping by. Laters, charisse
There were many gowns I did not care for, some I liked but were wrong for the person wearing them. I don’t know what some of the actresses stylist’s were thinking. Always interesting and fun however. Any favorites for you?
