Being cozy and comfy in our homes makes us want to curl up, relax and enjoy time with family and friends - and sometimes just enjoying pure solitude. Decorating with warm tones, lighting, textures (such as rugs, pillows and throws), books, plants and more...the possibilities are endless for a cozy living space. There is no right or wrong - it all depends on your personality and individual tastes.

Every room should be cozy, warm, & inviting. Even when you have visitors, they should feel welcome. We've created a few tips that we feel can create on overall warm and cozy living space. Depending on your style, keep reading and see if any of these appeal to you:).

TIPS to creating that perfect cozy room:

Layer with Rugs:  If you have a home full of wood floors, a rug can really create a space that is relaxing & inviting.  A rug can really bring a room together.

Mix in textures:  Mixing textures with cottons, woods, metals, and more can instantly make a room feel cozier.

Pillows and throws:  Everyone loves pillows and throw blankets! They can make any space look and feel cozy.  Whether they are stacked on your bed, sofa, or even in a wicker basket in the corner of a room, these are great elements to add to any room.

Be generous with lighting:  Depending on the mood you are looking for, it's important to have adequate lighting. Whether it's a ceiling light, lamp, or accent candles - lighting can set the tone for you preferred environment.

Add in your book collection: Adding books to a room can add texture. Keep in mind that it's nice to have your books within reach if you're looking to curl up and read, but layering with books can also add another dimension to a room.

Bring in the green: Plants can brighten up any space. Not only are they pretty to look at, but they also offer health benefits such as reducing stress and improve the quality of your indoor air.

Use warm tones:  Depending on your decorating style, adding some warm hues can make a room feel cozy.  And the colors can be light or dark - just be sure to add the right textures to balance them out.

Use raw materials:   I love the look of wood on the inside of a home. It's not just for floors any more. You can add wood on ceilings and walls (this is one of my favorites). With a coat of your desired paint color, this can really change the look of a room while also creating that warm feeling.

Cheers to Coziness!
