Warm-Up with Wayfair

PC: Wayfair


“I am such an Autumn person. Give me a quiet, cozy spot with a view of the changing trees … a warm drink, and a good book and I will be in all my glory.”

— Mckenna Kaelin

It’s officially cozy season; the time for chunky knits and cuddles by the fire. I don’t know about you, but before we jump into “full-blown” Christmas decor over here; we usually try to hold off until December 2nd (my hubby’s birthday) before any of the “real Christmasy” stuff goes up, I like to cozy-up the house. We also put up a real tree, so we kind of have to wait until December in order to make it last through the holidays. So during the in-between-time, when the weather is really getting cold, I love to add warm blankets, change some of the colours (add a little warmth and texture with different pillows and pillow cases) it’s basically hygge time for us. It honestly just makes our home that much more comfortable, cozy and welcoming at this time of year.

It’s basically hygge time for us.

Over the past few months, as we’ve started to get settled in our new place, I’ve been trying to find things that work with the furniture we already have, but also add something new to each space. I really like neutral colours, whites and greys being two favourites, but I’ve recently fallen in love with natural tones and rust colours that add so much warmth to a room. As we move through the house and slowly make each room our own, I’m noticing that these new colours are really starting to add depth and so much warmth to our home.

We are starting to plan our next room refresh and I’ve been spending lots of time on Wayfair.ca looking for pieces that are both functional and beautiful. These are a few of my most recent finds and I am so excited that they are a part of Wayfair’s Blogger’s picks! Click here to checkout the one of the many picks on Wayfair.ca

Below are my Blogger’s Picks, I couldn’t be more excited about these and stay tuned for the up-coming room refresh with Wayfair!
