We’ve always been drawn towards neutral and warming palettes for their calming and tranquil appeal. Creating an inviting living space means playing with natural materials, warm colour palettes, natural lighting, textures and more. The best thing about cosy styling? It’s all subjective, so you can really let your creativity run whilst giving it a unique and personal touch! We’ve broken down some of the best tips for creating a cosy home you’ll never want to leave…
Soften the feel
We love natural light in the home, it makes the interior feel more spacious and brighter but large areas of glass can feel chilly, especially when it’s colder. Adding a textured Blind can help keep the heat in and make the space feel softer and more inviting. Consider organic tonal weaves as Roman blinds that are highly textured with stylish neutral tones. Soft and natural ranges bring a real warmth to a space and work in all interiors from Nordic to Urban.
Use cozy textures
Create that place you just want to curl up in, and with velvets still reigning strong in-home furnishings there’s no better fabric to get snug with. This luxuriously soft, tactile fabric is a great choice for bedrooms and living rooms with sofas, headboards and throw pillows you just want to sink into. Add the velvety touch to your windows and get the cosy feel these blockout fabrics provide. Want to be fully wrapped up in cosiness? Paint your walls a deep shade.
Soak up the sun
Rooms that offer the best of indoors and outdoors, like conservatories, need that extra bit of help in feeling comfy as temperatures drop and rise. Thermal Control Blinds are your go-to. They help regulate the rooms temperature by retaining heat and bonus, they help keep energy costs down. Choose honeycomb structured Cellular Blinds or a coated fabric to make your space cosy and enjoyable all year round. We’d recommend a stylish, neutral palette as it works well in both a traditional and modern home or combines ecrus, taupes and caramels in a textural weave.
Think Mad Men decor with warm colours, patterned wallpapers and warm tones of wood. The mid-century modern look is perfect for creating a relaxed, cosy and stylish living space that never dates. You can finish the look with soft, floor to ceiling blinds in a plain for an intimate feeling or go for a stylish wooded hue.
