Add a Rug Tile and wooden floors have been trendy in contemporary and modern design, but you can't beat an area rug to warm up a chilly floor. Not only are they a great way to add visual interest to the room, but rugs on bare floors also help keep in heat, meaning they are warming your space. If you want to add texture, go for a plusher rug. For colour and dimension, go with a patterned carpet. You can even layer rugs on top of each (like the picture below) other for extra coziness on your feet. Rugs can also help with defining your space and be the missing link to pulling together your furniture groupings. Pillows Everywher, Pillows are another easy way to change up your decor and instantly make space seem cozy. Pile them on top of your sofa, bed, or even place a few on the floor. Pick pillows with different textures and materials to make it fun. And by adding one or two throw blankets and some pillows in your living room, you're inviting everyone to curl up and get comfy. The abundance of pillows in this room just makes you want to curl up, read a book and relax.
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.
When design meets both form and function, it feels like money well spent. I mentioned in the previous post that we had a major heating issue in the house last winter. Upstairs was extremely hot at night. (It absorbed all the sun from the day and the rise of the heat from below). But the downstairs was an ice chest throughout the day. We have one system for the house, so when we'd heat the downstairs, it'd make upstairs perfect for hot yoga. We now use the fireplace as a heater to the first floor, and it's working beautifully. We've barely had to run our heater this fall. So here's our cozy modern living room. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad we waited a year plus to add the fireplace. It took us that long to get to know the room and the house.
