Warming Up The Family Room

Cold January days have inspired me to add lots
 of warmth to our family room.


~ snuggly pillows and warm throws ~


❄   ❄   ❄   ❄   ❄ 


~ lots of texture ~


❄   ❄   ❄   ❄   ❄ 


~ blankets and wood for the fireplace ~


~ candles, too ~


And I will be right here, cozy on the sofa with my ipad,
decorating books and a warm drink. 


It's a nice idea anyway, right?

I'm so very thankful that I have a warm home and
warm blankets and a warm drink!

~ I hope you are staying warm too ~

  2. Love all your cozy touches, JoAnne! I'm also thankful for things to warm me. I saw on the news tonight that there are still people on Staten Island without shelter or heat and they're living in heated tents with others to stay warm. Love your throws! I've been having a tough time finding ones I like that don't cost an arm and a leg. I've gotten one so far ...

  7. Everything looks so pretty. The soft blue looks so welcoming and snuggly. I'm thankful to live in the part of the country where it isn't that cold. :)

  8. I love the touches of blue you have added to your blue family room. It's a favorite of mine and I am adding more to our room since we have a new to us blue chair. Stay warm!

  9. I love how you've "winterized" your room. It looks so cozy and warm. We are snuggling in here too. It's just so cold outside it takes your breath away - not fun at all.
