Someone pointed out to me the other day that many of the posts here on the blog are geared towards families. Well, yes, that’s true. I imagine that’s because I’m in the cozy “family” stage of life right now. Much of what I do revolves around my little family, this blog included.
But let’s not forget that, before there was a “we” there was a “me”! And I was just as particular about my living spaces then as I am now. So let’s go back to that time, shall we? Oh boy…a simpler time, for sure!
House aesthetics are one of the integral basics that define one’s personal space. Living solo gives you all the powers of expressing yourself and your art in many cozy forms of home decor. You need not compromise, you need not settle for things and the best part is you can showcase your possessions in your own unique style. If you are looking for ways to make your house comfortable, then here are a few awesome hacks that get the good vibes circulating!
I LOVE having a guest room.
I like when people stay with us. I like to be able to help out for a couple days and provide someone with a comfy place to stay. We’ve had friends, family and perfect strangers stay with us in our guest room, from all across the United States, and even folks from Canada and Africa! Now, it’s hard to provide someone with a QUIET place at my house these days (cue twin 1-year-olds). But comfy I can do!
After all, top hospitality residences understand the true meaning of creating comfortable and cozy guest rooms. An inviting guest room not only makes visitors feel welcome and comfortable, but it also gives homeowners a satisfying feeling, too.
Creating welcoming guest rooms doesn’t necessarily need to break the bank. Explore the following top design tips you can use to create cozy rooms for visitors.
Offer Luxurious & Comfortable Beds
The bed is the most significant area to help your guests get a good night’s rest. Visitors shouldn’t be given the oldest mattress in the home. Get a quality mattress that is supple and have quality bedsheets and a mattress cover to complement it.
Ensure that your guests get fresh linens. In addition to these items, top the bed with a cozy comforter and pillows covered in fresh pillowcases.
I’ve never really focused in on a particular “movement” when it comes to homemaking. I like colorful, no clutter and comfortable. That’s pretty much it!
That kind of goes along with the Feng Shui movement, right? Maybe it’s close? I’ve never tried to categorize it before – I just do what feels cozy and “happy” to us! So when Elliot from The Rug Seller contacted me about this infographic on making your home a happier place with “Hygge”, I was intrigued, to say the least.

I can’t remember the last time I went to the movies. Honestly, I can’t. What I remember is that the last time we DID go, we spent almost $50 on tickets and snacks. FOR TWO PEOPLE! I mean, really! That’s CRAZY!
Although I love a night out on the town as much as the next gal, you know what I really enjoy these days? A nice quiet night at home with my husband. Now, that may be because, between work and twin 6-month-old girls, plus trying to run the household and have some recreational time, too, well, there’s not a lot of time for quiet nights at home! Given the choice of getting a sitter and going out to dinner and a movie, or just staying in with some takeout, snuggly babies and our faithful Netflix account, I’ll take the latter!
In fact, I “pretend” like that’s what I get to do every night. And let me clarify: when we say “Netflix and chill” around our house, that’s just what we mean. Netflix and laying around the living room chilling out. No secret meanings here, y’all!
As soon as I we get home after work, we’re big on changing into what we call “comfies”. No more work clothes. Give me a pair of yoga pants and a soft tank top and I’m all set for the rest of the evening. That’s one reason why I LOVE Adore Me.
