The Essentials of a Cozy Corner

1.02.2017

The holidays are over, except for those out of work today and schools are still out, the Christmas decorations are stored away, and it's just the beginning of winter and the perfect time to make a cozy corner to hang out in while  the elements outside are cold and possibly snowy for some of you. I'm in the south so not much of the white stuff happens here. I still like a cozy spot to hang out in a cold day and that is exactly what we did yesterday while it was rainy and cold. In fact I'm writing this blog post from this cozy spot.



I was going to use the French style chair that you can see in this post in this corner after the tree came down, but decided to use the plaid one with the matching ottoman. The ottoman makes this chair so much more comfortable to be able to put my feet up. I may use the other chair in the warmer months when I don't need a cozy spot.

My essentials for a cozy spot are a comfy chair, throw pillows for extra support, a throw, good lighting and a place to set a drink. 

And a fire makes that spot even better.

Oh, and good reading material within reach, too.




Do y'all have a cozy spot to enjoy and do y'all have an essential that I didn't mention?

I hope y'all enjoy the first week of the new year!

Here's to 2017!!

  2. Love the cozy spot and have always loved that beautiful chair and ottoman. I have a couple of cozy spots...they require me putting up my feet or curling up on the sofa. Love the table next to the chair too :) ... Happy New Year!

  3. Love your cozy corner--your post has gotten me thinking about shaping up the chair and ottoman we have in our bedroom. The basics are there for a cozy spot but it is such a convenient space to quickly toss something temporarily that it needs serious unearthing! Your sweet and comfortable corner has inspired me to reclaim that messy area and turn it into a relaxing reading corner. Thanks for sharing your beautiful ideas!

  4. That does look real cozy! In this rental, there is not a cozy spot. I am looking forward to creating one next to the fireplace we will have in the house we build! Love that chunky throw!

  9. I have a cozy chair in the living room where I can put my feet up, but I seem to always find myself in one little corner of the window seat for blogging, reading or watching Steve cook.

    Happy New Year!

  10. Love your cozy spot Kim. Every girl needs a cozy spot to curl up with their favorite little fur baby too. I bet Bailey loves cozying up there too.
    Happy New Year.

  11. So hygge!
    If you tie together the adjacent legs of the chair and the ottoman, you'll have a chaise longue without doing anything permanent or expensive. Personally, I like when the foot rest doesn't wiggle away....

  12. Kim I need an ottoman after seeing yours, it's beautiful and cozy for sure. I feel like I don't have time to sit and enjoy reading or things like that anymore but would love to fit it into my schedule. Your cozy spot is charming for sure:)

  13. Looks like the perfect spot to me, Kim. I retreat to the sitting room off our bedroom. I have my white slipcovered down filled chair there...my laptop...hassock....table for my coffee and a fire in the fireplace...and a large SGD that overlooks the frozen bay. I plan on hunkering down there on Wednesday when I don't have so much 'running' to do.
    Have a great week- xo Diana

  19. The children went back to school here in France today, which is always a sad time for us, so much more fun when the children are at home all day! But your cosy corner looks delightful and it's that time of year when the festivities are over and we can all do with a little cosy warmth

  21. That sure does look cozy, Kim. Wish I had room for a place like that in my small house with too much clutter in it! Guess I better get rid of some of that clutter and make myself a corner! Boy, that chair looks comfy.
