Hygge, a feeling of cozy contentment often brought on by appealing home features and convivial accents, is often associated with the winter months. While cold weather does bring on the urge to snuggle up, warm weather can also be an excuse to surround ourselves with things that make us happy.
Therefore, we’re rounding up ways to boost the cozy feels — with a warm weather twist! Here are a few ways to make your Lincoln home even more cozy during spring.
Replace Your Scents
Cedar, birch, peppermint, and toasty notes are all wintertime aromas that help us embrace the season. Now that it’s spring, it’s time to replace these with fresher scents. Therefore, swap out winter candles for ones that are more seasonal. Incorporate essential oils like lavender, citrus, and honey into your home. Finally, place fresh flowers in front of an open window and let their scent waft through your space.
Bake Something Delicious
It’s no secret that the easiest path to comfort is through your stomach. Therefore, bake a seasonal treat that will lift your mood and satisfy your craving. This lavender lemon loaf is basically springtime in bread form with its bright flavor and heavenly glaze. While it’s baking, be sure to savor its smell. Once it’s done, place it as a centerpiece on your counter so it can double as decor and dessert after dinner is served.
Make it a Movie Night
There is nothing cozier than movie night at home. In the springtime, you can open your windows and enjoy a fresh breeze as you kick back and relax. To make things even more interesting, find a blank wall in your home and position a projector in front of it for a theater experience! Then, stock up on light blankets, lavender lemon loaf, and the aforementioned spring candles as you enjoy the show.
