Here in Austin we are approaching the coldest part of winter which means it’s time to cozy things up around the house. We all usually spend a lot more time indoors during these cold months while eating and drinking way to much and gaining the excessive 13 lbs Americans tend to gain during the holidays. WTF?!! Either way it’s usually a good idea to get your home nice and cozy and ready to hibernate AND to do a little bit of partying as well. So, here are a few super easy post holiday decorating tips:

Add natural elements
Whether it be a faux antler centerpiece, dark feathers, or cozy sheepskin pillows and throws, the natural decor amps up the coziness factor tenfold. If you’re feeling extra ambitious try mixing these natural elements with brushed metal or mercury glass. The juxtaposition is beautiful AND interesting.
Use lots of candles
Candles cast a beautiful, natural light, smell so good, and create the coziest ambience. They also look so pretty grouped together as your coffee table centerpiece. Try arranging candles of various shapes and height on a tray. Throw in pillar candles, glass votives, and some pine cones or greenery if you’re feeling extra festive.
Create a coffee, tea, or hot cocoa bar
There’s no better way to get comfy than with a hot drink, cozy blanket and a good book. Plus, if your feeling like an adult beverage, just add the liquor.
