This time of year, nothing beats the feeling of sinking into a sofa that’s really hard to get out of, with a fire crackling nearby and a cup of something hot (preferably spiked) in hand. But creating that scene can prove challenging when your home is fireplace-less, and the climate outside anything but wintry — we Texans know this all too well. The solution? Either skip town for an amazing winter escape, or cozy up your crib with all the cabin-inspired things: layered rugs, stacks of firewood, piles of blankets and tons of antiques. Whether you’re actually planning on transforming your space into a seasonal haven, or want to imagine teleporting to an existing one, the ten dreamy cottages below have all the inspiration you need.
