If you prefer the sleek look, don't think you need to go with a rustic theme to add texture. Look for chunky woven fabrics for furniture and throw pillows, grass cloth or fabric wallcovering and natural-fiber carpets. Linen is a great choice too. Notice here how the upholstered table catches the light beautifully. Throw in some curves for inclusiveness and comfort. Curves are intuitively more inviting than rectilinear shapes. Rounded and soft, they tend to make us feel more protected and comforted. Creating a quasi circle, this pair of curved sofas fosters inclusivity. One side completes the other, so neither sofa feels cut off, making conversation more relaxed. Rest your arms. Arms that sit too low on sofas and chairs top my list of pet peeves. Before you buy furniture, sit down and test it to make sure that not only the arms, but also the height, depth and back angle are reasonably comfortable. The last thing you want is a sofa or chair that looks nice but that you avoid because it's uncomfortable.
Lighting, We often neglect the magical effects light can have on a room. So what is it about lighting that can make a place more inviting than the next? It may seem strange, but with just a few fixtures in the right place, a room can appear bigger, taller, longer, or even cozier. It's especially important to have multiple light sources in a living room - brighter ones for larger gatherings, smaller ones for more intimate gatherings or a night in. Table lamps can bring lighting down to a human level and make a room seem cozier. So consider placing several table lamps around the room for a more intimate atmosphere. Another easy trick is to switch 'cool' toned light bulbs for 'warm' tone ones. It's a tiny investment, minimal work, nearly instant cozification.
