Comfy aesthetic is a visual representation of calm, peaceful & cozy moments. It is about simple things made beautifully and it is very much about fall and winter feels.
Fall and winter: no one can deny these are the coziest and comfiest seasons of the year. Nature has its ways to tell us to leave the old behind and slow down to rest to focus on self-care and feeding our heart and soul with activities and stuff that are fulfilled with love.
Chicken or pumpkin soup, warm blankets, crisp air, binge-watching all tv shows under the blankets, staying in bed all day and not feeling guilty, comfy evenings by the fire. The Comfy aesthetic is a visual representation of all those cozy, guilty-free, no rush, lazy feelings, and this post is a guide for you to allow yourself to dive into this mood.
In this story, we will list and illustrate all the elements that you need to get your cozy vibes on and create a comfy aesthetic home and routine in real life.
Comfy/cozy aesthetic color palette:
Colors can trigger some moods. This is a basic design principle and a reason why we wanted to create an aesthetic buying guide. So, to invoke comforting, relaxing feelings you should go for colors that trigger relaxation, calm, clarity, purity, peace, warmth, wholesomeness, safety, and positivity. White, beige, orange, brown, and some grey and green will help you achieve these moods.
Comfy Aesthetic Elements:
Just like colors can trigger some moods, the same happens to textures, food, weather, scents, and everything our 5 senses can reach. Below is a list of elements you need to invoke and the soothing and relaxing feels.
Chilli days: Of course you can feel cozy and comfy during summer too. But let’s face it, when we think about the word comfy, cozying up on a chili day is the first thing that comes to our minds.
Comfy drinks to warm the heart and soul: Comfy cozy aesthetic hot drinks are one of the most comforting and simple things we can give to ourselves. Below, some heartwarming recipes for all fall and winter long:
A go-to fall coffee: Mocha, caramel, classic pumpkin spice latte, or french vanilla.
Winter creamy hot chocolate: Whether is sweet milk chocolate, white chocolate, or rich dark chocolate; A cozy mug of homemade hot cocoa is the best way to spend the chili weekends. A few amazing recipes are available on the internet and here are some comfy flavors for you to explore:
Cozy comfort food: All the classic fall recipes are a good idea to live in a comfy mood: pumpkin spice pie, apple pie spice, pumpkin soup, milk and cookies, cinnamon roll, and pancakes are classic comfort food.
Comfy spices: Cinamon sticks, cloves, ginger, cinnamon powder, nutmeg, black pepper, star anise.
Books and candles: cozy weather is a great opportunity to hang out with a book and let your mind travel to a new world and story. Light a scented candle that smells like the location described in the book, and if possible, enjoy the sound of rain by the window.

Cashmere is basically a mood. An expensive one. But we can‘t talk about cozy and not mention this ultimate symbol of luxury & comfort.
Loungewear indoors or outdoors: comfy aesthetic outfits is about feeling like lounging around in your pajamas or hugged by little lambs everywhere.
