Cozy Winter Home Tour

After all the fluff and overload of Christmas, simple clean spaces are calling me for the new year.  Our winter weather has finally arrived here in the desert.  We have been in the 50's for highs and as low as freezing for lows.  I wanted something cozy and simple for the living room.

 Leopard and fur feels cozy.  Who doesn't love to snuggle up with fur.  I love the warm colors and all the texture too.

 I love mixing different patterns together, it just seems more interesting to me.

The guys have been playing chess again so I thought I would leave it set up so they can play anytime they want.  This black and white marble set adds another pattern to the room too.

The mini makeover this room has been through this past summer and fall is finally coming together.   It amazes me that changing the mirror and coffee table made such a difference in the room.  There was a lot of trial and error and then I just followed my heart.  If you missed my post "The Best Design Tips I've Learned That Will Help You Too", is all the lessons I learned to finally just go for it and create the room I love. 

It really is beginning to look like me and feel like home.

  1. I always enjoy visiting your home and it looks lovely decorated for winter. I love your fur pillows and blanket and can imagine how cozy it is to sit in this space at night. Your new mirror and coffee table look great in this space. I'm guilty of always reading your posts but not taking time to comment. As you've shared your other cozy winter spaces, I've enjoyed those posts as well.

  2. Your home looks warm and cozy and I especially love the mix of patterns on your sofa! I think you're all set for winter. Well done Marty! :)

  3. Very warm and comfy yet sophisticated. Love how bright it is in there. Makes those gloomy days a bit more tolerable. Very pretty.

  4. Your stunning window and all the light streaming in sets the tone for your classically beautiful style.

    I love that the chess board is out on the table.

  5. Your home is beautiful. Love the patterns you styled in your living room. Each room you have the perfect touch of winter. You made your home feel warm and cozy.

  6. I love the light that streams in your living room. That is is the best decoration for a room in my book. Pretty as always Marty.
    I am working on my living room and cannot wait for my Pottery Barn Sectional to come in so I can get that room together.
    Happy Monday.

  7. Your home is lovely and the fur pillows look extra cozy! Happy to be joining you on the hop! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  8. Hello Marty,

    Winter has arrived here in Jersey too. Temps were in the single digits this morning.

    I am for softer tones and comfy rooms the days. Your makeover is fabulous. The living room is so stylish and fresh. Great use of patterns and textures. Love the gold accents too. You did a great job with your home. It is cozy and inviting.

    It was fun joining you on this blog hop today friend.

  9. The animal prints and fur along with the gold accents really make your space classy and beautiful! I love the vaulted ceilings; what a fun space to decorate!

  10. Marty,
    I agree, this is beginning to look like home. . .cozy home.
    I love your Traditional 'roots' and your Cosmopolitan Chic blend of style!
    Thank you for sharing your lovely cozy winter home!

  11. Marty, your home is fabulous! I love the golds mixed up with black and white. So cozy and chic!

  12. LOVE those animal prints with the gorgeous brass and gold metallic pieces and accents. Marty your home is so glam, yet cozy and comfortable!

  13. Marty, I love the animal print pillows. They really look great in this room with all the other accessories and furnishings. The chess set looks perfect on your coffee table. It looks like a photo from a magazine. My parents lived in Phoenix for years and having visited them through all the various months, I know exactly how cold it can get there. Stay warm with your fur throw!

  14. Marty I have to say that this is my favorite home tour post of your yet. You have really nailed this spaced! I am so glad you chose the large mirror. Loving the animal print, and the clean, cozy look of everything. At the end of January all the last of the snowy references will be gone from my decor and I will be going for a clean slate in February after Valentine's Day is over. LOVE THIS POST! Thannks so much for joining the hop dear friend!

  15. *Please disregard my typos...long night working on my post last night!

  16. Marty, I love the clean look of your living room. Great idea to use the cheese set as another design element for color and pattern. Aren’t faux fur throws the best. Nice to be on this hop with you.

  17. You know I meant chess, not cheese!!

  18. I love your style! Your mix of patterns is so elegant and beautiful! You style rooms I could sit in forever!

  19. Your home and room, as always, look perfect and beautiful. One comment .... As the daughter of a chess champion, I want to THANK you for having the chess board set up correctly -- with the bottom corner being the WHITE square. White on Right!! Irks me to no end when I see it set up incorrectly, and I know Daddy appreciates me gently correctly people, LOL

    Enjoy your warm weather, it is cold here in Toronto, but we are headed to Florida tomorrow.

  20. Marty, I always love seeing your beautiful home! You have such an elegant decorating style and such a talent for creating gorgeous and inviting rooms. It was so much fun to be on this hop with you! Enjoy your week!!!

  21. Marty, First of all thanks so much for the sweet words! I always love your tours. You have such a keen eye for design and know just where to place the right accessories to create a warm and cozy feel. That mirror over the couch is just stunning. I could so curl up with that faux fur throw! XO Christy

  22. LOVE this room! Please share where the coffee table came from. It's fabulous!
