Cold weather? No problem! Colorado skies never stay cloudy for long but use these tips to keep your mood and home cozy.

Incorporate Light
The go-to choice for those who love light, candles can bring any room to life. Consider wood wick candles that not only look stunning as they burn, but also create a slight popping noise to simulate a crackling fire. With warming winter scents like pine, cinnamon, and peppermint, candles are a stellar way to add a soft glow to your space.

String lights are a charming way to incorporate a glow in the bedrooms throughout your home. Get creative by hanging softly-flashing lights, multi-colored bulbs, and strings that include miniature clothespins that will hold your favorite family photos.

Cozy Blankets
While your family spends much-deserved downtime at home, consider knitting your own blankets. Allow your family to choose the colors that reflect their personalities — as well as the material that brings them the most comfort. When you entertain close friends and family for the holidays, they’ll love wrapping up in your handcrafted cozy throws.

As you work on your blankets in the coming months, be sure to place your knitting baskets at a safe distance from the fireplace in your great room. Baskets not only provide easy storage for your balls of yarn and other accessories, but they also add a thoughtful and home-y aesthetic to your interior decor.

Display Greeting Cards
Capture a warm and fuzzy feeling by surrounding yourself with messages from your loved ones. Break out your favorite greeting cards from past holidays, birthdays, and special occasions to string around your doorways and place on your side tables. While you lounge around on lazy Sundays, consider creating a festive display complete with boughs of holly and votive candles.
