Do you remember putting your child in “time-out” when they needed a break from misbehavior? I decided sometimes we need a break from the stress of life and should have our own cozy time-out corner! The difference however, is that the latter corner is a reward to yourself!
Today I’m joining a few blogging friends for another Cozy Living session. Check out everyone’s cozy ideas for April at the end of this post.
Work is getting busy, our family events are getting more frequent, and soon there will be added work in the garden. In order to balance life, I created a cozy time-out corner just for me, when I need a respite from the world and simply want to relax.
Since it’s spring, I lightened up my favorite chair with light weight quilt with a floral pattern. A pale blue pillow adds just a touch of calming corner. Here, I can sit and read or curl up to watch an episode or two of The Crown or reruns of Fixer Upper.
A basket filled with my favorite magazines is nearby for inspiration. Ever since my early twenties I’ve loved poring over an issue of Country Home or Country Living, savoring every page and every photo. The latest issue of Country Home magazine is amazing and worth every penny!
Also nearby is my favorite Creeping Fig to purify the air while I enjoy my time-out corner.
The glow of a mercury glass candle adds another layer of ambiance and warmth.
Here, I will rest my weary bones and sore muscles after a fruitful day out in the garden. And did you notice my newest fig? It’s a smaller version of the popular fiddle leaf fig. This charmer is called a “little fiddle.” Such a cute name for an impressive plant. Everyone deserves to take a time-out from the world on occasion, don’t you think?
