Guys, it is fall, and you know what that means. It is the season of apples, cool weather, sweaters, and beanies. It is the season of turkey, witches, flannel, and plaid. It is the season leading up to the holiday season, complete with Christmas, candles, and cookies. It is the beginning of four months of hygge.

If you don't know what hygge means, it is "a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture)," according to the Oxford dictionary. And basically, all of the pictures below scream hygge. They are the epitome of coziness, homeyness, contentedness, all of which are indicative of fall and winter for me.

So sit back, relax, and grab a cup of tea. By simply looking at these pictures, I guarantee you that you will feel the level of self-care.

I have one goal during the fall and winter seasons.

And it is to make myself a big, toasty cinnamon bun. I do that with a combination of pillows, blankets, candles, tea, books, pajamas, and slippers.

Reading nook

from CozyPlaces
Everyone deserves a reading nook in their home, especially one on a window sill looking out over a gorgeous fall forest.

Snowy cabin

from CozyPlaces
We are mere months away from a snowfall like this, one that blankets everything and creates a calming quiet that eases the senses.

Perfect room

from CozyPlaces
This room has everything you need for a cozy evening in it. There are plants, a dog, lights, a dog, pillows and blankets, a dog, and candles. Did I mention there was a dog?

Dog in bed

from CozyPlaces
There is no cozier place than under the covers with a puppy. Dogs run warm, so their bodies are like natural heaters. It's the best feeling.

A countryside view

from CozyPlaces
Oh my goodness, it doesn't get much cozier than this. Imagine what this window sill would look like in the snow! No matter the season, this is the perfect little nook.

Adirondack cabin

from CozyPlaces
If you haven't been to the Adirondacks in upstate New York, I'm telling you it's time. It is the best, coziest place on the planet.

Winter cottage

from CozyPlaces
Well, this is pretty much the dream. An adorable lakeside cottage in a gorgeous winter forest. Yes, please.

Bedroom in a van

from CozyPlaces
You can have the coziest sleep of your life in a van like this. This one is designed to give you the view and the sleep of a lifetime.

Perfect bedroom

from CozyPlaces
The easiest way to transform your regular, drab bedroom into a hygge paradise is to add string lights. It does wonders.

Fall farm

from CozyPlaces
Well, here it is, folks. This is my dream life encapsulated in one gorgeous picture. Of course, the one dog represents the multitude of dogs I own in my dream life.

Cozy hot tub

from CozyPlaces
Um, yes! A hot tub next to a fireplace and all of that is next to floor-to-ceiling windows. It's pretty much a perfect relaxation hub.

Living room bliss

from CozyPlaces
If someone said, "This house is falling apart, it has terrible plumbing, it's pretty much condemned, but it has beautiful wood beam ceilings" I'd be like, "I'LL TAKE IT!"

Netflix and chill

from CozyPlaces
This is the best example of Netflix and chill out there. The Netflix and chill that you actually want to partake in.

Winter wonderland

from CozyPlaces
This room is almost perfect. All it needs is approximately 20 more pillows, and then we'll be all set.

Catnap

from CozyPlaces
Look at that wall of lights and vines! I love it, and so does this cat. But he's going to have to move over and share this bed stat.

Jungle bedroom

I always underestimate the power of a potted plant. Fresh greenery is an amazing addition to a room, provided you know how to keep your plants alive for more than a week.

NYC

from CozyPlaces
Is that a red ceramic bathtub in the corner? This is the type of picture that makes me want to move to New York City, and I know I don't want to live in New York City.

Cozy corner

from CozyPlaces
Again with the string lights! And if you pair those with wood paneling and a big comfy chair, that's about all you need.

Karma cabin

from CozyPlaces
This Airbnb understands your vacation mentality. To have long, luxurious baths in the forest and relax until you fall asleep.

Couch bed

from CozyPlaces
Yes to the couch bed. Yes to all of this. I mean, I would never have to get off of this thing. It's perfect.

Adirondack lake house

from CozyPlaces
Need I give you any more proof that the Adirondacks is a fall lover's dream? A paradise for plaid wearers? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Canopy bed

from CozyPlaces
Wow, antlers aren't usually my aesthetic but paired with the string lights and everything else over this bed it's like, yes, please.

Romantic

from CozyPlaces
This bed is simple and cozy and great, and that tilted ceiling seals the deal. I think I would try to read here but fall asleep from coziness.

Living space

from CozyPlaces
This is the type of living room I imagine I will have in my house when I have retired from my career as a writer and professor, and I live with my books and my dogs in the woods.

Black and white bedroom

from CozyPlaces
I love everything about this bedroom but can you guess the two things I love the most? If you said the dog and the books, you know me too well.

Treehouse

from CozyPlaces
Who doesn't want a treehouse? I want a treehouse just like this! Rustic yet luxurious, perfect for a short getaway from everyday life.

Reading chair

from CozyPlaces
At the very least, someday, I would like to have a reading chair. Something big and comfy that I can curl up in for hours and hours.

Sitting nook

from CozyPlaces
I love a good nook. If a house has a sitting nook, I'll want to live there.

Snowy sight

from CozyPlaces
I love this unique window and the very "hygge" setup inside. Share this with someone who loves being cozy as much as you do!
