Make Your NYC Apartment Cozy This Winter

Mar 1, 2023

The winter season is upon us. It gets dark earlier, and all we want to do is stay inside our warm luxury apartment in Gateway Battery Park, NYC. Follow these tips to make your space feel more inviting for the holidays.

Create a Nook

Staying inside is the perfect reason to catch up on your reading! Pick a small space to get cozy and add everything you need to create a relaxing environment. Add pillows and a warm quilt to keep you comfortable, and be sure to have a place where you can set your hot tea. Maybe an area near a window with a nice view of Battery Park and lots of sunlight. Now all you need is something good to read!

Add Layers of Lighting

Opening the drapes on your windows at Gateway will allow plenty of natural light to enter the room. Not to mention the added benefit of vitamin D. Incorporating table lamps and floor lamps with warm and cool lights will help to ensure that you can always get the lighting you're looking for at night, especially if you are working from home.

Keep Blankets Handy 

One of the easiest ways to make your home feel more comfortable is by draping blankets over your furniture. This added touch will make your home feel more inviting and ensure extra warmth is just an arm's reach away.

Incorporate Texture 

Adding texture to your walls is an easy way to create a cozy feeling for your home. If your windows currently have blinds, consider adding drapes for another layer of texture and a personal touch. Adding tapestries can also quickly fill a blank wall while creating a unique focal point.

Personal Comfort

This is a perfect project for those who are away from loved ones and getting a little homesick at times. Take the time to add some of your favorite images to your wall space, desks, or other areas that look a little bare. Your apartment will feel cozier, whether it's a family photo or your favorite album in a frame.
