Creating a cozy atmosphere for the holidays can help you and your guests get into the festive spirit. Whether you’re planning your Thanksgiving decor or looking ahead to a Christmas makeover, here are some fun and simple ways to create a cozy atmosphere, according to home interior designers in Rancho Palos Verdes: 

Keeping Warm 

As the environment cools, so does your home, and with utility prices at an all-time high, running the heater 24/7 might not be in the budget. A fun way to mitigate cooler indoor temperatures— throw a blanket on it!  

You can’t go wrong with cute, festive blankets draped in every form at every corner of your home. You won’t have to go far to cozy up if your stools, couches and chairs have intentionally placed throw-overs ready to be snuggled at any time. 

If you’re looking to turn your home into the perfect template to change with the seasons, consider our interior design services in Rancho Palos Verdes. 

Festive Candles 

Psychologically, smells are just as intertwined with your ambiance as visual elements. Placing scented winter candles on your coffee table, shelves, mantle pieces and any other open spaces will fill your home with cozy festive scents and unlock the holiday nostalgia we’re all striving for. 

You can burn them one at a time or light them all at once— just make sure you choose lighter scents so as not to overwhelm yourself or your guests. Home interior designers in Rancho Palos Verdes like to frequent boutique candle shops rather than buying generic ones. 

A Festive Fireplace

Festive fireplaces are a staple holiday accent relevant to both Thanksgiving and Christmas time. You can start with basic beiges and greens for November and transition into more Christmas-specific decorations in December. Elle Decor has a list of fun ideas to spruce up your mantlepiece. 

Of course, if your home or apartment is missing a fireplace, there are other options available to create the ambiance. Our interior design services in Rancho Palos Verdes can help you choose and enhance an alternative to built-in fireplaces.
