In the summer, I aim for a vibrant and airy vibe in my home. In the fall, I like to add welcoming colors and smells of spice. Winter? It’s all about making my home warm and cozy—preparing for chilly days outside.
While I enjoy ice skating and spending time out in the snow, nothing beats a day curled up inside my cozy home. But my living room doesn’t turn into a comfortable haven on its own! No. Instead, I add knit throws, sweet-smelling candles, and festive decor to transform my home into that of a holiday storybook.

The UGG Sherpa Throw is so soft and plush that I bought two of them! They come in multiple colors but I own the one in ivory and the one with a reddish tone. What’s great about this one is that you can flip it over for a completely different look.
I have a fair share of throw blankets… but I can’t seem to stop buying them! My UGG Coco Luxe Throw has a velvet-like texture and it looks a bit more refined than the one above. I chose the moss color because it’s my daughter Kylie’s favorite!
I also like the Coco Luxe Throw Pillow that goes along with the blanket. It’s covered in plush material and it comes in a set of two. Plus, it’s not Christmas-themed so you can leave it out all season long!
While I don’t own this UGG Rainbow Throw Pillow, it was too cute not to include! Not only is it cozy, but it’s also the perfect decor item for a young girl’s room.
There’s also this Cloud Plush Pillow. Another great option for a child’s room!
I think this UGG Casey Sherpa Backrest Pillow is the perfect gift for students who are studying from home. If they’re anything like my own kids, they may have turned their bed into a learning space. But with this, they can be comfortable while knocking out their homework!
No matter the time of the year, I tend to get pretty hot when I sleep. That was until I tried these ultra-soft HygroCotton sheets. They’re made with Tencel which makes them super soft against your skin. And anything soft is cozy in my book!
While I like a cool bed, I also like feeling warm right out of the shower. Because nothing is worse than getting out of the hot water into a chilly bathroom!
That’s why this Haven Towel Warmer is my best friend. Doug fave me one for Christmas years ago and I appreciate it every single time I get out of the shower. Who wouldn’t want a warm towel waiting for them??
Cozy Home Decor for The Holidays
Throws and pillows are essential to a cozy home, but I also love adding decorative touches to make my house feel festive for the holidays. Here are some of the ones I have in my own home this holiday season.
This Luminara Holiday Wreath adds a traditional Christmas look to my space. It can be put almost anywhere! Here, it’s on a charger plate but it also looks nice on a cake plate or as a centerpiece too.
The exact one I used in this picture isn’t available now, but I think you’ll like the one HERE!
For years, I’ve used classic Luminara candles around my home. But when the holidays roll around, I like adding festive ones! I’m a huge fan of this Fir Berry option because of the colors and texture. It comes in two sizes and it’s safe for pets, too!
Right now, the Berry Luminara Candle is available and it’s bound to add a beautiful addition to your home!
And although I have an undeniable love for candles, I also like to change things up with diffusers. One of my FAVORITE scents of the season is Fraiser Fir from Thymes. And the reed diffuser adds more of a decorative touch to your space!
The Red Mercury Tree you see in my image above isn’t available anymore, but I love this one I found at Target! It’s very similar and you can also buy it in white and pink.
I also like the look of these petite porcelain trees. I can cluster them together in a motif or use them here and there throughout the house!
HERE are some similar ones that you can buy. Perfect next to the hand soap in your bathroom or among your family photos!
It seems basic, but adding a new rug to your space is an easy way to decorate for the season! I love this snowflake-printed accent rug because it’s easy to spot clean and bound to add a cheerful note to your home.
I hope these items give you some inspiration for gift-giving and decorating your home this season. Since I’m such a comfy cozy kinda gal, I can’t wait to snuggle up with a new throw while enjoying my decorations!
And as promised, you can find a video of all my home essentials above!
