About this challenge

We all need a space that serves as an escape, even for just a moment. With a little personal decor and TLC, any space—a walk-in closet, a home gym, a DIY patio, or even just a corner bookshelf filled with knick-knacks—can become a reflection of you.

Enter the Cozy Corner Challenge showing us your absolute favorite spot in your house, apartment, backyard, fire escape, or wherever you call home. This could be a plush reading nook, a sleek kitchen countertop, a fort you built for your cat, or even your growing veggies on the balcony—any space that you've transformed into somewhere you're proud of that makes you feel at home. Remember to share photos of your space, and we promise not to invite ourselves over!
