Cozy Up Your Home

Your apartment is the place that you’re going to come home to at the end of a long, cold day. Don’t come home to an equally cold apartment, cozy up your home and make it a place you long to go back to. In this week’s The Eclipse at 1450 Blog, we’ve got a few ways you can make your home a little more comfortable and inviting. 


Illuminate your home and make it smell even better by investing in some candles! Don’t settle for just any candle, spring for the scented ones that will emit a pleasant odor when lit. These candles are a good way to give your home a rustic feel and make it a little cozier. When these candles are lit, you can dim your lights and let the firelight light your home. This way, you can even save money on electricity!

Blankets and Pillows

Who doesn’t like to sit on a couch that’s full of pillows and blankets? There’s a level of comfort that comes from having access to soft pillows and a blanket to wrap yourself in when it gets cold. Break out the blankets and pillows that you have in storage and keep warm during the winter months! If you don’t have them in storage, invest in them, you’ll thank us! 


If you’re someone who celebrates a specific day during the December months, it may be wise for you to decorate your home in celebration! Decorations can add personality and a touch of homey comfort. If you’re a minimalist, you can still participate without losing your main aesthetic, you just have to be strategic in the decorations you choose!
