If you're anywhere on the east coast you know Jonas has taken over. I've spent the last three days hunkered down with hot chocolate, a few good books, and a whole lotta Netflix (Narcos, anyone?). Watching the snow come down has made my house feel extra cozy and nothing has been better than curling up in bed with piles of blankets and pillows. Which, of course, inspired today's post.
As I looked through images of my favorite cozy spaces I realized I'm torn between minimalist and maximalist spaces. It seems like a lot of other people have been having the same struggle lately. With their limited color palettes, clean lines, and lack of clutter, minimalist designs are relaxing and calming to the eye. But I love stuff. A lot. So oversaturated palettes and highly accessorized maximalist spaces have always appealed to the collector in me.
Rather than fight these two sides of my aesthetic-self I decided to include cozy spaces of both ilks that I'm lusting after this weekend. Enjoy!
Winter and minimalism never looked so good together:
