The nights are drawing in, the days are colder, and the thought of snuggling up in your lounge on a cold winter's evening sounds perfect? This is what we call the cosy feeling. 

But, how do we create that cosy feeling in our home and more specifically, your lounge? Follow any of these 4 easy steps to achieve those cosy wins in your home!

 

Starting with the Right Textures

Firstly, it's about textures. 

I’m talking about the materials of all the elements in your home - from furniture, through to upholstery and accessories. Think of warm earthy textures, soft plush velvets and fluffy accents. 

Here’s a suggestion from our store. This gorgeous oakAskell sideboard is the perfect example of not only functional, but stylish and sleek, in a traditional warming wood. It’s a great timeless piece.

Your upholstery is such a big feature within your lounge, and this is the perfect place to get that texture just right. We cannot stop our love and obsession for beautiful and luxuriousvelvets

A recommendation from our store, this beautiful Boden 3-seater velvet sofa in deep navy is just dreamy, and affordable.

Next, what about your feet? 

Let’s not forget your feet like to have a treat. So, what about a super soft woolly rug in front of the fire? 

What’s more,rugs are also great at absorbing noise in larger rooms with hard floors. Simply, it’s a real quick and cost-effective way of creating your very own house cosy.

Check out this gorgeous example in soft grey and available in 3 different sizes.

Moving to the Right Colours

Secondly, it’s about colours - dark jewels, warm greys and neutrals coming together. However, pops of colour in oranges, reds and yellows can still add a cosy element with a hint of fun with shapes at the same time!

The Richmond rug is a perfect example of executing this feeling. Mixing those neutrals with oranges and yellows, with an on trend geometric pattern.

Adding the Soft Lighting

The third part in making your house cosy is soft lighting. 

Using the right lights can make the difference of feeling like you are under integration, or unwinding after a long day. 

For instance, eglo lighting provides floor standing, lamp and ceiling solutions, offering style and functionality in one go… a winner!

The Final Social Touches

Finally, pulling these elements together into the right layout is the last piece of the cosy puzzle. 

This is where it’s really important that your sofas are facing not only towards the TV, but also in a socially advantageous way. 

Whether a square or rectangle, centering around a coffee table allows to put those socially essential drinks and nibbles. Perhaps a side table close by, so that you are not having to reach too far for the remote control or the tissues if you’re watching a romantic movie!

Check this essential Geo coffee table, with matching side table available. The perfect finishing touch!
