Home for the Holidays: A Guide to Coziness

Staying home for the holidays this year? Make each day at home a little cozier with some helpful tips from the Artogone team.

As days get shorter and the weather gets colder, we’re craving warmth and comfort more than ever. Here are a few suggestions to help make your holidays at home more restful.

Lighting is Key

Let in as much natural light as possible. Sunlight can help brighten your mood, even during the coldest days of winter. If you find yourself needing a little help from artificial lighting, make sure your light bulbs are on the warmer side. Avoiding overhead lighting and diversifying light sources by adding lamps, lanterns, tea lights or reflective objects, such as mirrors, is another great way to warm up a room.

Still not cozy enough? Light some candles to enhance the romance. 

Pattern and Texture

Surround yourself with colors, motifs and textures that are satisfying to the eye and to the touch. Add soft throws, rugs and pillows to areas where you want to relax. Natural materials such as wood and ceramics are also great picks. Woven baskets can help keep a space tidy and are usually made from organic fibers. As for color, consider white, warm or neutral tones. Let your personal definition of coziness guide you.
