When you’re trying to work on your home decor, it can be hard to decide what you want. Because there are just so many options. And you might not know what kind of look and design that you really love the most. This means that you might end up putting off some of your home decorating, because it seems so overwhelming. However, one of the best ways to do it, is to break things down by room. Because when you start in one place, with a smaller project, it’s easy to get the ball rolling. And then, you can choose the decor based on the rooms function. When it comes to your living space, you will often want this to be cosy so that it helps you to relax. So let’s take a look at five key things that can help you to make your living room cosier.
To start with, you’ll always want to ensure that you’ve chosen your colours well. Because there are always going to be range of colours that scream cosy more than others. Warmer shades, like reds and oranges and browns, work here. But you could also look at the different cosy colour scheme inspiration and idea on that site to see if there’s something else that you might like to work with instead.
When you’ve set the tone with your colour palette, you’re then going to want to work on the temperature too. Because no matter how warm the colour palette is, if the space is physically too cold, it will not feel warm and inviting. So make sure that you have a good heating system in place in here too.
Then, you’re going to want to work on setting the perfect atmosphere here too. Because if you really want the space to look and feel great, you’ll want to work in the best atmosphere boosters. First of all, you have the option of working with a fire. And they can be easy to manage with natural, odourless firelighters to help you. Because a live flame is always cosy. If not, you could look to add a range of candles to give the space a calming feel.
And you’ll also want to make sure that you’re working with comfortable textures and fabrics too. So make sure that you pick out cushions and throws that are going to make the living area nice and cosy, rather than feel too rigid and formal.
But then also, this can also work with how you spend your time. Because if you decide to have a cosy evening, make hot cocoa, and all watch a movie together, your living space is definitely going to feel much cosier than if you are working in there. So sometimes, how your home looks and feels can very much be about how you spend your time in it, and how you see the space, as well as how you decorate it.
