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!

Fun Facts:

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.

Style Clues

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
