Play with Layers and Textures. Nothing says comfortable quite like layers and textures. One of the easiest ways to make a space warm and inviting is by layering furniture with throws and pillows. Add knitted covers, fluffy pillows, pillowcases with fur, wool and mix them with simple materials like cotton to create the perfect contrast. And of course, nothing says cozy quite like fur, and faux fur options are even better! Whether it's a carpet, throw, or wall hanging, the fuzzy material will give your home a pleasant and toasty feel. This space uses a variety of textures and layers to create a warm, cozy feeling. Knits and textures have a way of making you feel cozied up at home, and there are so many ways to incorporate them into living spaces, across the bed like this or even thrown over on an armchair or couch which adds instant a touch of soft luxury. The fluffy pillows are also such a great textures that create softness and coziness.
Use White to Freshen Things Up, Mele is a huge proponent of painting things white, especially furniture. “I think white modernizes and freshens,” he says. “People are afraid of their old grandmother's found furniture, but their forms are so fabulous and remain timeless. White just gives furniture a contemporary personality, I think. A fresh youthful spirit.” To strike the right color balance in the home's formal dining room, Mele had the dining chairs bleached white from the original brown. Strike a Color-and-Pattern Compromise, When dialing up the pattern, it's sometimes best to dial down the color to achieve a calmer, less chaotic effect.

Generally fire-place, plasma unit or a console make good focal points. It is sometimes important to draw the attention to the farthest wall using an oversize piece of art or decorative mirror so that you have footsteps in that corner, else it will become one dull area of the living room.

It is very important to achieve a balance by not overdoing any one style. Accessories like cuddly cushions, candles, dim lights, and flowers will add warmth and coziness to the atmosphere. Add likes to your lighting rather than one high voltage ceiling lamp illuminating the entire room, use a combo of the floor, table, ceiling and wall lamp to make the space glow. A big rug made of plush wool or silk made with traditional weaving will make the room inviting and also set a sharp contrast with furniture.
