Today’s challenge is one I long for in my home but I haven’t been able to accomplish yet. Do you have a cozy spot in your home? A spot that maybe you have your morning coffee or read an inspirational devotional for the day? A place where maybe you go at night to just unwind and read or sit for a minute and reflect on your day?
I love our living room and it is where we spend our most time. I usually work in our living room, and that is also where we gather in the evenings to talk, play, watch a movie, and enjoy being together. But I have also wanted a certain spot that is a bit “cozier”, that I could maybe “set aside” for certain times or activities. I actually would love to add that type of spot in our living room and in our master bedroom.
So here’s some of my inspiration:
This picture is from BHG in a slideshow of pictures of the top ways to cozy up your home. I love the basket for extra blankets or pillows and the ottoman.
And this picture is from the Gaspar living room off of Fixer Upper! I loved this episode and this living room. There is an entire living room on the other side of this picture. But yet look how cozy this one spot looks. I think I could enjoy my morning coffee right there.
And this picture is from Erin at Nest for Less and her master bedroom makeover. It is simple and perfect spot to create a cozy nook in your bedroom. To sit in the morning or night and just recharge for a few minutes doing something that you love – reading a book, reading a devotional, or drinking a cup of coffee.
You can see that all 3 of these pictures have 3 basic things – a lamp, a chair, and a side table. I have the side table – just need to find the chair and the lamp now!
Do you have a cozy spot in your home? Where is it and what do you love to do there?
Challenge for today: Create a cozy spot in your home. You may already have a chair – but maybe you need to position it someplace else and drag a lamp over on some kind of side table, stool, or even a crate turned on it’s side. Use those corners in your room to create a cozy nook.
