When curating a living room, it’s best to consider elevated layers that are going to add depth to your styling and create an inviting space. To achieve the cosy aesthetic, we suggest bringing in a blend of different textures, materials and colours to help achieve the elusive cosy feeling (with or without a fireplace!). We’ll talk you through the different layers you can add to your living space to give it the ultimate cosy feel.
When creating a cosy space, it’s important to consider the many layers that go in to a perfectly styled living room. Beginning with your choice of furniture, matching your pieces will help to make your space feel considered and deliberate. Our living room collection features the Arlington range, which is perfect for the paired back modern Scandi aesthetic, and is available in classic black and white colourways. Inject your own personality and style into your living room with open shelves - they’re the perfect way to display your favourite finds.
A coffee table or side table is a must-have in any living room. You need to have a space where you can place coffee table books or a bunch of flowers but more importantly, a place to rest your morning cup of tea or coffee. A comfortable couch is a significant consideration in the pursuit of cosiness and you’ll earn extra cosy points if you can sink right in. Pair your space with our linen Newbry Dining Chairs - the natural material helps to add dimension and a softer style to any space, with the green option being perfect for a touch of colour.
The finishing touches are important to bring your space together and add another level of lived-in cosiness. Now that you’ve considered your furniture choices it’s important to consider the styling as it can make or break a space. Add in texture with cushions and throws to help create layers and dimension to your living room. You could further enhance the ambience in the room with a floor lamp to give off a warm inviting glow and reduce the need for bright overhead lighting.
Even if you aren’t going to read them, coffee table books are crucial to styling your living room, providing a temporary pop of colour or to help to pair back an eclectic décor. Candles can help to cultivate mood in any room of your home but are especially useful in a cosy living room, so go with a warm and comforting scent for the ultimate cosy vibe. Last but not least bring the outdoors in with greenery and floral arrangements, and have fun with different coloured pots and vases.
Remember to have fun and experiment with different styles in your living room until you find your perfect level of cosy that you look forward to coming home to each day.
