As winter settles into Omaha, we’re all reaching for our fuzziest blankets and mugs of hot cocoa. Maybe it’s the cold; maybe it’s the holidays (or maybe a little of both!). But something about this season makes us crave comfort, warmth and days wrapped up in front of fireplaces.
If you’re seeking inspiration to satisfy your coziest dreams, look no further! We found Omaha area homes with grand, inviting living rooms, breath-taking kitchens, warm dining rooms and so much more. Take a look at our favorites and find out when you can see these houses in person!
Formal Dining for the Whole Family
This luxury home has plenty of cozy spaces, but we love picturing dinner in this rustic dining room while snow falls outside. The vintage touches create a decadent atmosphere, and the dark neutral colors make it inviting and calm. Imagine the whole family settling around the table for a home cooked meal!
Stay Warm While Watching the Snow Fall
Surrounded by windows on every side, this home’s living room will make you feel like you’re immersed in the outdoors. But while the weather rages and chills outside, you’ll be warm and comfy in front of the impressive stone fireplace.
Lodge-Inspired Luxury Living
Lodge style is inherently cozy — especially when the landscape outside is covered in snow. This gorgeous home embraces the style in every room, but the main living area takes the cake. Log walls and a dramatic stone fireplace offer a cabin feel, but the elevated ceilings and beams create a sense of grandeur. Grab your warmest blanket, your favorite book and lounge in this beautiful space all day!
See the Sights, But Stay in Bed
One of the most unique homes in the area, The Pointe House sits on a peninsula and has its own tower with sweeping landscape views. But that’s not the only place to admire the panoramic view! The master suite has a wall of windows and its own fireplace, so you can take in the sights fireside while you’re curled up in bed.
A Decadent Den
You’ll want to work from home every day in this dramatic study complete with a wet bar and large windows, offering a lot of natural light and an inspiring view. This home’s library sitting room is also the perfect place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, watch the snow fall, and warm up by the fireplace.
The Perfect Hearth Room
Filled with festive scents of baking cookies and family meals, the kitchen is one of the best rooms in the winter. But add a hearth room and the space becomes a paradise! We love the elegant touches in this home’s sitting area as modern decor merges with vintage style to create a room we want to spend all day in.
A Grand Cabin Kitchen
We wouldn’t blame you for making extra trips to the kitchen for hot cocoa in this Blair home. The colossal fireplace, elevated ceilings, modern light fixtures and deep granite countertops make the space breathtaking. We especially love that the kitchen has a stone hood vent to match the hearth!
Modern Decor With Family Functionality
The fireplace is the cornerstone of this living room. Centered on the wall, it reaches to the two-story ceiling and has a space to display your favorite art or family portrait. The built-ins on each side are functional and stylish, offering space for memories and a TV for family movie nights and Husker games!
Homey Meets Elegance
This home’s living room manages to be homey and luxurious at the same time. The white stone fireplace reaches to the eye-catching ceiling and makes the space feel monumental. But the rich hardwood floor and cozy corner locale keep it warm and welcoming.
A Sitting Room for Every Occasion
Just off the entry, this home’s sitting room is secluded from the rest of the house and has its own cozy fireplace. With space for entertaining and access to the formal dining room, you’ll be able to invite all the neighbors over for a fun night-in!
Hibernate in Pub Style
You’ll want to hibernate all season in this home’s basement entertainment space. With an at-home pub feel, you’ll be able to watch your favorite movies on the big screen, mix up your favorite drink, and invite your friends over to watch the big game.
A Sunroom for Every Season
This Omaha home has a four-season, heated sunroom you’ll want to spend the entire winter in. With a completely different character from the rest of the house, this space gives off a cabin-esque vibe with 180-degree views of the backyard.
The living room in this Omaha home has a character all its own. The modern, statement fireplace and entertainment center are impressive and inviting. But the ceiling detail separates the space from the rest of the open floor plan, giving the whole room a sense of seclusion and grandeur!
Dining with a View
Floor to ceiling windows and a 180-degree view in this dining room provide a simple elegance year round and a cozy feel during the winter.
Stay cozy this season!
