Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean that your home has to feel cold too. With the right designs, you can create a warm, cozy, and relaxing home you can enjoy while it’s freezing outside. Read on to get inspiration from these cozy home decor ideas you can incorporate into your home.
When it comes to cozy home decor ideas, having a wide variety of inviting textures goes a long way. You can start by incorporating blankets such as Sew Sweet Minky Design’s OMG Blankets. Its warm, lush, and textured fabric provides instant comfort that will make you and your loved ones feel right at home.
Don’t stop with just making your seating’s texture warm and inviting, but also consider the flooring. Try adding a plush rug to make it extra inviting.
A cozy room should be easy to look at. If your room is jumbled with a range of colors, it can make people feel rather uncomfortable. When decorating your living room, stick to a neutral, monochromatic color palette. There can be the occasional pop of accent color, but they should be muted and used with caution. The main focus should be helping everyone feel welcome and relaxed in the space.
3. Dark Colors
A great cozy home decor idea is incorporating darker designs. This doesn’t mean you should aim for black walls with a black carpet, but you can consider using darker greys or rich chocolate as your primary color.
A well-placed blanket or throw that works with your existing accents and color scheme can help enhance your cozy decor. When adding layers to your decoration, be cautious. If not done properly, layering can make your space look messy and cluttered. To avoid making this mistake, make sure that your layers tie together with the rest of the room and look natural.
5. Warm Hues
Using warm hues helps give an inviting feeling to your room. Warm hues can be displayed through books, leather, wood, and even metals like bronze and copper.
6. Cool Primary Colors with Warm Accents
Warm colors and hues can be important, but they don’t have to be the only color used in your room. To make your warmer colors pop more in your cozy home decor, use them as an accent color against cool neutrals.
A great way to bring warmth to your room is with your pictures. Choose to put up family pictures of your trip to the beach or any summertime activities to add an extra level of comfort and coziness to the room.
8. Warm Lights and Fire
One of the best ways to make any space a bit warmer is by adding warm lighting to it. Every light in your home has the option to give warm or cool light. Warm lights emit more of an orange or yellow-hued natural light, while cool lights produce a blue-tinted light.
If you have the space for it, consider adding fire through either candles or a gas fireplace insert. These can add both warm light and a bit of heat to the room to make it even more inviting.
9. Comfortable Seating
The key to making something cozy is making it comfortable. When picking out chairs, sofas, and the layout of the room, comfort should be king. Large, overstuffed fluffy chairs and sofas that provide an inviting place to sit, snuggle, or spread out will help make your room feel more inviting. Avoid seating options with high, rigid backs or very little padding in them.
10. Close and Cozy
Being close to what you love is a great way to make a place feel cozy. Whether that might be books or people, make sure that whoever or whatever you love is close by. By placing chairs and sofas next to each other or near end tables or bookshelves, it can help reduce feelings of isolation and make the room more comfortable.
