Do you decorate your home for the holidays? Your home is the place that you return to at the end of the day, so decorating it and making it cozy will give you something to look forward to. In this week’s Driscoll Place Blog, we’ve got a few ways for you to cozy up your home and get it ready for the holidays. 

Blanket and Pillows

When you think of a cozy place, you often think of a place that you can call home, but more than that, you think of a place where you can kick your feet up and perhaps even take a nap. To create that sort of atmosphere in your apartment, we recommend taking out the comfy blankets and pillows. Though it doesn’t get too cold, you’ll never know when you would need to wrap yourself in a blanket and take a nap. If you don’t have blankets and pillows stowed away, it would be worth your time to invest in some!

Holiday Decorations

Since it’s the holiday season, you can decorate your home to match the holidays you celebrate! Holiday decorations are a good way to get into the spirit of the season and enjoy coming home! It’s important to be moderate with your decorations and not go overboard. Maintain a level of dignity and class by limiting how much decorating you do. It’s still possible to have a cozy, well-decorated home without going overboard!


Candles may seem like an old school decoration, they’re a good way to bring a rustic, cozy feel to your home. There are multiple uses for candles, but the main ones is to provide you home with a beautiful scent and to illuminate your home! Beautify your home and save on energy by using those candles! Invest in candles that have a pleasant smell to you, that way, you’ll enjoy lighting them even more!
