3 tips for creating a special, cozy place in your home

Everyone deserves a relaxing space to retreat to at the end of the day. If you're in need of some rest and relaxation, take a look at these ways for creating a special, cozy place within your New York home:

  • Chic vanity: For women who like to take time to apply their makeup in the right lighting, a chic vanity is a must-have. You can simply repurpose an old desk to create this piece, or browse thrift shops for a vintage vanity. Be sure to situate this object next to the window to receive plenty of natural sunlight.
  • Comfortable pillows: "To fully appreciate the time you have to read, you need to be in the most comfortable setting possible and that means you need a chaise lounge or a large couch with plenty of pillows," writes Jacob Hurwith of Improve Net. "Also, if you plan on reading often […] make sure you have plenty of lighting." To enhance the abundance of natural light within your reading nook, opt for the right custom window coverings.
  • Signature scent: Everyone has a favorite aroma. These scents can spruce up your place and help put your mind at ease. For instance, lavender is known for it's stress-relieving and tranquil properties. Purchase a lavender-scented candle or diffuser to transform your home into a luxe oasis.
