Creating a Cosy Night In with Eat Sleep Live

Posted by Tracey Owen on

Regardless of the season, we all love a cosy night in with friends or with a loved one. It brings a feeling of tranquillity and relaxation, and it's the perfect way to escape from life's manic moments.

To help inspire you, we've put together a step-by-step guide on how to create the ultimate night in.

Step 1: Cosy clothing

You simply can't have a cosy night in without cosy attire. Think soft PJs, slippers, warm blankets, and cushions. It always helps if you've got a cosy soft sofa to help with the relaxation. You can create sofa heaven with a mix of velvet, faux-fur and quilted cushions – keep a chunky blanket on standby to dive under if you’re going to be binging on a box set or two.

Step 2: Choose your activity

Watching a movie is the first activity for your cosy night in. Whether you go for a romantic comedy, horror movie, or action-based thriller, get ready to relax with a hot drink in one hand, and a bowl of popcorn in the other. After you've watched your movie, why not play a fun board game, or perhaps relax with a good book?

Step 3: Set the scene

A cosy night in needs a cosy atmosphere and you can help create that vibe with a variety of additions to your room. Regardless of where you decide to base yourself, candles are a must. Not only do candles bring atmosphere and wonderful scents to your room, but they are perfect for aiding relaxation. We also think that adding fairy lights as the source of lighting in the room is perfect for building that cosy, tranquil atmosphere.

Surrounding your home with rustic wood furniture is the ultimate way to create cosy decor. Whether you've got a wooden coffee table to hold your popcorn and sweet treats, or a rustic bookcase holding your favourite reads, board games and DVDs. If you've got a fire, then make sure you light it in the winter months for the ultimate cosy atmosphere.

Step 4: Pamper yourself

No cosy night in is complete until you've pampered yourself a little. Whether that's in the form of a relaxing bath and a face mask alongside a box of macaroons, or painting your nails, brushing your hair, or simply dining on your favourite foods, make sure you treat yourself. A cosy night is much more fun and effective when you feel amazing too.

Step 5: Turn off your phone and social media

Whether it's a cosy night in with yourself, your friends, or your family, ban phones and Facebook. This night is all about relaxation with no distractions. So switch off and enjoy the calming and tranquil atmosphere that surrounds you.
