With gloomy weather and cold temps, all I want to do is curl up and lay in bed with Zelda. The weather has officially turned and it has put me into hibernation mode. One of the perks about owning my own business is that I can work from home from time to time, and this week I’m working on making my house extra cozy. I sense a full weekend of binge watching movies in my future (mostly cartoons but hey, I’ll take what I can get!). I have thirteen items that I’m always happy I have in my home and I wanted to share them just in case you’re working on nesting this week too! What are your go-to home items when the weather forces you indoors? Tell me in the comments below.
It’s easy to make your space your own with a few pieces of eye-catching wall art. As surprising as it might seem, I turn to The Land of Nod frequently. While it’s geared towards kids, there are some seriously stellar pieces that work for adult spaces too.

Candles instantly cozy up any space and I’m always partial to filling my home with them when the weather cools down. Nothing beats curling up on the couch in a beautiful smelling space.

You can’t curl up on the couch without a comfy pillow! While comfort is key, your pillows should still be aesthetically inspiring. Zelda and I have a lot of favorites at The Land of Nod but I also recently stumbled onto the Fred Segal collection at CB2 and these pieces make me swoon.
Shop Comfy Pillows
One of my favorite things to do in the fall and winter is make little snacks to go along with our movies, and what better way to enjoy them than on adorable plates? Anthropologie wins in this category.

Zelda and I usually stick to outdoor gardening, but I love the look of greenery inside. This fall, we might try our hand at indoor greenery. It’s an inexpensive way to freshen up any space.
There is something so special about a beautiful mirror. An unexpected design can add a pop to any room and in many instances, incorporating a wall mirror will make your space look larger than it is. It’s a win-win!

Who wants to sleep in an uncomfortable bed? No one. Your bed should be your oasis! Once you have a cozy mattress, it’s all about the bedding. Our secret tip is to use a silk pillowcase. It’s so much better for your hair and skin, and makes for a more restful sleep!

I make it a goal to perfect my cheese plate every year and it always starts with a gorgeous platter. After all, the holidays aren’t that far away. It never hurts to start planning a little early!

Shelving in your house is a must. Showcasing your treasures is another key feature to making your space your own. Whether you live in a house, a condo or an apartment, your interior should feel like you.
Not only are these key dishes adorable, they will save you hours. No more frantically searching for missing keys! (If you can remember to set them in the dish.)

Having a fully stocked bar cart is an effortless way to accommodate unexpected guests (I know we all have those in-laws who love to drop by). If you live in the city, it also does double duty by freeing up some space inside your kitchen cabinets, and we all know additional space is priceless.

We use canisters for everything! From baking ingredients to Zelda’s art supplies, canisters are a pretty way to store not so pretty things.

A stunning rug can tie a room together! We used this rug from The Land of Nod when we transitioned Zelda’s room from a nursery and we know it will be with us for a long time. Make sure you choose something durable if you are placing your rug in a high traffic area!
