Summer is over, the days are getting shorter and soon the chilly winds of winter will be blowing in. The best way to combat the chilly weather is to stay indoors and make your home as cozy as possible.
There is nothing like the warmth of home, a warming meal, a bowl of soup or hot cocoa. There is a sense of security when you are tucked warmly in your favorite chair with your favorite blanket away from the frozen ground and snow-filled streets surrounding you. It is a good idea to start now when getting your home ready for the coldest time of year.
Of course, the secret to the coziest home is to have the house of your dreams. And why trade the snow for sand and find a home in a warmer climate like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Before you know it, you will have the home you've always wanted, and now you can make it cozy. Here are some tips to bring warmth into your home.
A Warming Color Palette
When choosing colors for the home there is no need to fuss over warm colors vs cool colors. While reds and yellows are often considered as warmer colors, they both have cooler hues. Choose the colors that work best for you, then look for a warmer, deeper tone.
Lots of Layers and Fabrics
Nothing says warmth like a nice thick blanket, but it doesn’t have to stop there. Add extra rugs and pillows to create a cozy atmosphere. Anything made in a knit pattern screams cozy and warm. The more comforting fabrics the more welcoming the area will feel.
Bring the Outdoors Inside
Adding simple touches of nature to your décor has a way of adding security to any room. Pinecones, leaves, or antlers add a woodsy element to the home. As you look at them you can be reminded of the chilly weather and how lucky you are to feel warm. A touch of the forest also brings life to any room.
Create a Cozy Reading Nook
Make a spot in your home that is specifically made for those extra chilly nights. A knit blanket, thick pillows, and a plush rug to keep your feet warm is all you need. Add in a reading lamp with a warm tone and you will not want to leave all winter. This cozy spot will become a focal point in your house and guests will gravitate to the comforting area.
Have a Home that Feels Like Home
You can try to add these elements to any room and they may just not work if you are not comfortable in your home. The only way to beat the winter is to have a cozy house that feels like home.
