Cozy Decorating ~ Farmhouse Style

The 4th Friday of every month makes me very happy … because that means it’s Farmhouse Friday!ย  I’m so excited about our Farmhouse Fridays in 2016 because we’ve added some amazing bloggers to our line-up that I KNOW you’re going to love!ย  We pick a different farmhouse style topic each month, and then link to one another so you can easily see how each of us interprets the topic. Whether it’s decorating, gardening or cooking; the topic always relates to farmhouse style. Today we’re celebrating cozy decorating in our homes since we’re in the throes of the winter season.

Cozy Decorating in a Victorian Style FarmhouseAfter all the decorations from the Christmas season, I’m ready to pare down and simplify my rooms. So when it comes to cozy decorating, I add just a few touches to keep us feeling warm and snuggled up through the winter, like fluffy throws and pillows.

 

Cozy Sign for Winter DecoratingHobby Lobby has these great metal letters (you can typically find them at half price!) and I made a makeshift sign with them. All I did was stretch a length of twine across my ceiling tin and hung the letters with wooden clothespins. Quick and easy, which is my favorite kind of decorating!

 

Cool Blue Glass Vases on Wooden TrayOn the blanket chest that serves as our coffee table in the family room, I’ve added cool blue vases settled on a rustic wooden tray. The frosty blue glass reminds me of the snow drifts outside with their streaks of pale blue. I found the vases at T.J. Maxx.

 

Cozy Decorating with Homemade CandlesOf course, you have to have farmhouse style candles in your cozy decorating line-up. I made these scented jar candles not too long ago. I stacked this one atop vintage books I’ve collected. You can see the bottom book is by Pearl S. Buck. She’s one of my top 3 favorite authors. I fell in love with her in high school when we had to read The Good Earth for one of my literature classes.

 

Black Kitten in a Cozy FarmhouseIf you live in a farmhouse, chances are you have furry critters to keep your home warm and cozy. This little kitty was a feral cat from outside that we’ve acclimated to enjoy people. We’re looking for a good home for her, but if no one wants to take her, we’ll keep her. She’s a sweety!

 

Cozy Pillows for a Farmhouse Living RoomIn the living room, I’ve created cozy decorating style by layering our love seat with pillows. The one on the right is a recent find from HomeGoods. They tend to have good prices on pillows.

 

Mini Olive TreeI like a little bit of greenery this time of year since there isn’t any to be found outdoors. I have a pair of these mini faux olive trees that add just the right touch in their mossy cement pots.

 

Books for Cozy Reading during Winter MonthsWhen I curl up with our winter throws and pillows, I reach for one of my favorite decorating books, like Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O’Neill. The inspiration helps fight cabin fever.

 

Cozy Decorating with Hot TeaWinter afternoon reading also calls for a cup of fresh brewed tea.

 

Inspirational Coffee MugsI love these cute inspirational mugs. One says “ya gotta believe” and the other says “try your best.”

 

Inspirational Coffee MugsI love the fun patterns on the insides of the mugs too. One for hubby, one for me!

 

Cozy Decorating in a Farmhouse Living RoomIn the living room I kept my frosty wreath from Christmas. It seems fitting that a snow-laced rustic wreath should keep its place of honor until Spring breezes into town.

 

Cozy Cute KittenDid I mention you need to include a cute little kitten in your cozy decorating repertoire?ย  I did? Well, here she is again in all her cuteness. This is “her spot” after all. She keeps us warm by crawling into our laps.

 

Cozy Sign in Farmhouse Family RoomHope you keep it cozy and warm this winter! Simple touches are often the best.

 

Cozy Decorating. Farmhouse StyleMy favorite choices for cozy decorating style are throws, pillows, and candles.

What changes do you make when decorating for winter?
