As sad as it is when the chill family feasting of Thanksgiving is over, the only real consolation is that the best of the holiday season is still to come—meaning parties, sparkly decor, pretty dresses and shoes, and cuddling up with a great book. We may not love the cold, but who can complain about built-in down time for sleeping in, cooking, drinking good wine, and generally not going outside?
Along with stocking up on all things festive, winter is a great time to invest a little time and money in making your home a place you want to be. When it comes time to swap our bright floral pillows and neon rugs for fuzzy throw blankets and scented candles, sometimes we need a little inspiration.
Of course, there are a ton of gorgeously cozy, well-styled living rooms out there that we’re taking notes from. Click through the slideshow ahead to get a look at which spaces you’ll want to recreate for yourself.
