The joy of your home is how comfortable you feel there. Every home should be a place to kick back, relax, and find true peace away from the rest of the world. The home is an especially safe haven during the winter months, when Southerners are spending less time outside on the patio and more time cozied up on the couch. While the chilly temperatures come and go in the South, these long stretches of short, dark days and icy weather forecasts can take a toll on the soul. Which is why we suggest making the most of the season by adding a few cozy touches inside your home so tucking in for bed and enjoying a night on the couch is all the more enjoyable.

Looking for ways to make your space all the more inviting? We’ve selected the perfect items to level up your space from comfortable to downright cozy.

Sweet Water Decor Warm and Cozy Candle

This soy candle combines orange, cinnamon, clove, and pine for a scent that smells just enough like the holidays to bring a feeling of peace and nostalgia, but not so on-the-nose that you can’t burn it all year long. It will give you up to 40 hours of burn time as long as you make sure to always trim your wick before lighting, and allow the wax to melt all the way to the sides before blowing it out.
