At this time of year, there is one room that has become the heart of our home, our living room. We spend a lot of time there as a family, especially at the end of the evening when it is dark outside, snow is on the ground and all you want to do is cuddle up on the sofa with a hot chocolate with marshmallows!
Our living room is a place for us to unwind therefore putting in some extra effort to make it a restful, warm place for the whole family to spend time together is worth the effort. Check out these 6 things that will make your living room super cozy and let me know what you think.
The hearth is often seen as the heart of the home and no wonder, spending time around the fireplace is such a lovely thing to do this time of year. I came across this beautiful 20th Century White Carrara Marble Fireplace from Westland London, and is just the thing to make your home super cozy. Can you imagine lighting a fire and sitting as a family around this stunning fireplace?
Having the right lighting in place can make such a difference to how cozy a room feels. This stunning light is in the Regency style, made of brass and can be purchased from Westland London. It would most certainly give the right amount of ambiance to making a room super cozy for you and your family to relax in the evening. Or this Shell chandelier would make a wonderful addition to your room.

This timeless country elegant sofa will make your room feel super cozy this time of year. We often curl up on the sofa and watch movies together when the wind outside is howling! We love putting our feet up, snacking on some popcorn and watching Groundhog Day over and over again.

A throw is a must to make your living room super cozy. This one is so cute from Dunelm. Knitted with pom poms I mean what more could you ask for. It’s big enough for 2 people or more if you have some small people to keep nice and cozy. Another idea is to layer up cushions to mix and match with the throw. I have to admit to having a thing for cushions often needing two or three just for myself! Or you could opt for a dark pair of curtains such as these Waverly Curtains. As long as they feel cozy!

I have a thing for candles. Candles in the living room, candles in the hall, candles in the bathroom! They really do make any room feel super cozy. Not just this time of year but any time. I adore the Signature range from The White Company The aroma is so inviting and has a warm and spicy scent of cinnamon and clove with a dash of fresh orange. Just so balancing.
The finishing touch to make your room super cozy is to all sit down with a mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows! A delight during winter but even more so at Christmas time. Sitting down in the evening, discussing the adventures of the day all with a hot chocolate will relax you and help you as a family to engage at a time when family can take a back seat with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping.
So that is my 6 ways to make your living room super cozy. What do you think?
