We are about to get deep into the throws of winter weather and I am already pulling out the extra blankets. While adding a fireplace to your bedroom is probably not realistic (especially if you’re renting), there are plenty of simple changes that you can make to turn your bedroom into a cozy, welcoming space you’ll be loath to leave once the cold weather sets in. Following are 11 cozy bedroom items that will guarantee you to stay warm and stylish this winter.

1. “Cozify” your lighting.
