I have to feel 'warmth' to feel cozy, so we light a fire in our woodstove in the winter months. I love to hear the twigs crackle & snap, & love watching the flames dance & undulate. Add 3 golden retrievers, a pair of cats & a loving husband to the mix, and I have everything! Yep, cozy is in the mind of the beholder! Wishing you all a cozy winter!

I think this is a lovely idea. Makes me want to snuggle up on the sofa under a soft comforter right now, with the cat purring next to me......

Great tips. I like the emphasis on quality time in serene places. We're seeing more emphasis on opening up dining and living rooms so that there can be a coziness between the two rooms. It's begun the rainy season in the Bay Area--so we're all wanting to cozy up more.
