Our living room is getting cozy for the holidays.
Our family room is the ultimate cozy space for cuddling, watching movies, playing games and just being together. The Christmas decorations and tree all add so much magic to the space and it is the perfect backdrop to making memories during this special time of year.
This post is sponsored by The Carpet and Rug Institute but all thoughts, styling and cute kids are my own.
When it comes to our family room, it’s ALL about cozy and warmth. I get cold easily and need lots of blankets and throws available. Textiles add in layers of warmth and style to any interior space. One of the main factors for warmth in our family room is having carpet and a rug. If you have carpet in the main living room, here are some ways I like to make it cozy and stylish.
My husband, Jimmy loves to to stick his feet into our carpet when it’s time to relax. I know, it’s strange. 🙂 He prefers having carpet in certain rooms in our house and one of them is the main family area. Having carpet in our family room keeps it feeling warm especially during the colder months. Adding a rug on top adds another layer of coziness. Rugs also help to anchor your furniture and creates an intimate area.
Most people think that carpet acts as a trap for allergens but when dust settles onto it, your vacuum can easily pick it up. Improving the air quality in our house is pretty important especially since we have 3 young kids and many foster children coming and in and out of our home. Carpet can actually support healthier spaces including people with asthma and allergies.
One of the advantages of having carpet is also noise reduction. It helps to reduce the noise of pitter patter of little feet and toys which is a constant in our home. CRI is a leader on carpets and carpet trends and they recommend regular vacuuming as well as having it professionally cleaned when necessary. Since we don’t wear shoes in our home, it’s another way our carpet stays relatively clean through all the natural wear and tear.
The Christmas decorations add to the coziness and we especially love the beautiful glow at night. Add in other textiles like pillows and throws for added texture and warmth.
This is truly our favorite time of year!
Our family room serves as the perfect space to play games and hang out with each other. You will usually see one of the kids sprawled out here reading, watching tv or playing games. In the evenings, you will see Jimmy folding laundry on the carpet while watching tv while I sit on the couch writing up a blog post.
Nowadays, there are so many different carpet options that fit an array of styles for every person. I’m so excited to partner with CRI for one of our readers to win a chance for a $500 Visa gift card. All you have to do is go and enter at BeautyofCarpet.com to register. I hope you win!! I know that a gift card like this can come in handy especially this time of year.
As always, thanks for reading! See more photos of how I’ve decorated for Christmas on my Instagram. You can also check out some other friends sharing their carpeted spaces for the holidays.
