Home Decor Inspiration: Get Cozy!

The cooler temperatures have finally arrived here in Kentucky and there's nothing better to me than spending a night by the fire under a pile of cozy blankets.  The combination of the weather and approaching holidays makes me want to add as many "cozy" details to my decor as possible!  There are so many easy ways to add cozy winter touches to your home from vintage wool blankets and plaid patterns, to dark distressed woods and fluffy rugs.  Take a look at the inspiration photos below for some stylish ways to "get cozy!"

We are seriously obsessed with any type of vintage wool blanket here at Street Scene!  I love the mix of modern and rustic in this super clean but slightly quirky space.

You can never get enough plaid!  This adorable shop setup showcases lots of plaid blankets of all colors mixed with distressed woods and leather furniture- I especially love that incredible vintage realty sign!
  
Winter neutrals always look extra cozy and chic to me- knit pillows, furry blankets, and plenty of baskets are a must for these spaces.


 This couch is amazingly beautiful, and who wouldn't want to watch Christmas movies while lounging on this beauty?!

Another great example of cozy winter neutrals- love the deep charcoal paint above the fireplace and chic mix of different neutral plaids.

Cozy meets modern in a super clean and contemporary dining nook full of rich fabrics and patterns.

A fur rug, basket of firewood, knit pillows, and plenty of wool cushions, not to mention a fabulous fireplace, make this otherwise sleek space especially warm and inviting. 

An adorable pendant lamp made from striped wool- this would be super easy to DIY!

The most beautiful yet simple Christmas/Thanksgiving dinner space I have ever seen!  Visit the link for more photos of this fabulous dinner party that used all plaid blankets as tablecloths!

Plaid only gets better when mixed with plush velvets!  Feel free to mix and match lots of different plaid patterns- just be sure all the color schemes are coordinating!

Love the mix of plaid with canvas on this couch- the plaid would also look great mixed with leather!

Amazing idea to create curtains from vintage wool blankets for a cozy cabin space!

Love the way the eclectic mix of this room- the teal walls are unexpected and keep the room from being too traditional!
