How to Create a Cozy Home for the Holidays

This post is sponsored by Sengled. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Inspired by This!

Is this time of year anyone else’s favorite? We can hardly get enough of Christmas music, holiday drinks, or turning our home into a winter wonderland! Part of what makes this season so enjoyable is coming home to a cozy house where the tree is lit, the spell of douglas fir and cinnamon fill the air, and fresh cookies are on the stove (can’t you picture it now!?). This year, we partnered with Sengled to create an even more cozy home for the holidays! Thanks to the Sengled Element, we can flip the switch on Christmas in an instant!

First things first… what’s so great about these light bulbs!? We love the Sengled Element for many reasons, but mainly for the ease of use. You don’t have to treat them differently than any other regular light bulb. Simply screw the Element into whichever lamps, sconces, or overhead lighting you choose as you would normally do. Then, let the fun begin! Control the bulbs straight from your phone using the Sengled Element application.

We love being able to turn on the lights before we arrive at home, so that we can walk into an inviting environment. Don’t you just hate coming home to a dark house?! Wether you want to access the lights in your living room, kitchen, or bedroom and so on, you can pick and choose the setting right from your phone.

Another favorite feature of the Element light bulb is it’s versatility. We’ve sought out different color bulbs before to create the atmosphere we want, but now, we can alter the brightness and color without changing the bulb or installing a dimmer. We enjoy the daylight setting in the mornings to wake us up and get us moving, and switch to warm lighting for evenings and entertaining.

Here, we wanted to create the perfect cuddle-up/sip-hot-cocoa/watch-the-holiday setting. So, we set the lighting to warm, turned down the brightness and brought out a plate of cookies. Voila! This also makes for a great setting when having guests over. You can create the likeness of candlelight with these bulbs for the perfect intimate dinner party and dazzle your guests. Too busy prepping, or can’t place your phone at the right time? The Element also syncs with your smart home systems such as Google Home or Alexa so you can simply ask it to turn on the lights or adjust the setting. Like we said, the ease of use may be our favorite Element feature!


These are just a few of the ways we take our home from zero to cozy during the holidays. However, there are so many ways to enhance your home this season with the Sengled Element! And at an affordable price point, it also makes the perfect gift for family – parents, spouses, aunts or uncles! Get them started on the journey to smart home lighting!
