Your home should be a place where you feel most comfortable. The word ‘cozy’ gets thrown around a lot (don’t play the HGTV-drinking game ‘Cozy,’ we beg of you), but it really is the perfect descriptor for how many of us want our spaces to feel. Feeling cozy in your home is ideal all year, but it’s especially important when the weather turns cooler and we need that extra hug of warmth at the end of the day.
From twinkling lights to mason jars, here are 16 items that will up your cozy-level.
