Cozy Living Room
Now more than ever many of my clients have been asking how they can create a cozy living room in their home. This is because they are spending more time at home and need a comfortable environment to relax in. So today I wanted to share with you what makes a cozy living room design stand out and how to create a similar feeling in your home, no matter what color scheme you currently have! If you love a good Netlix binge or movie night after a long day working – having a cozy, comfortable and relaxed living room is definitely for you! Let’s take a closer look at how you can create a cozy living room design that still feels elegant!
How to Recognize a Cozy Living Room
Typically, a cozy living room design can use almost any color scheme… But a truly cozy room will use slightly darker shades than normal and include different textures. The style is recognized by the combination of this with lighter furniture and accent pieces. Soft lighting makes all the difference for creating a cozy ambience too!
A cozy living room design doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be dark in colors, rather you should focus on using colors that have an undertone of red (and not blue!) so they feel warmer. Using colors with warm undertones helps to create a more cozy and relaxing atmosphere. A cozy living room also features deeper furniture than normal. For example, the sofa and armchairs should be deep enough so you can fully relax and unwind without the furniture forcing your posture. If you have space, a sectional sofa is ideal for this, as it’s easy to curl up in a corner.
Accessories and different textured textile pieces help to create a cozy environment too.
This style often includes:
- Soft and subtle tones of colors
- Warmth through different textures – faux fur, velvet, wool
- Soft and moody lighting
- Deep furniture like armchairs and sofas – particularly sectionals
