If you struggle to make your modern home look homely, we get it! Clean lines and minimalistic designs can start looking cold and structured, especially now that fall is here.
So today, we’re going to talk about ways in which you can bring some cozy ambiance to your space. We aim to show you that even minimalist or modern homes can be warm and inviting without being all grandma chic, with just one or two unique features. Add these key pieces, and your modern space will come alive with character and charm.
Pile Snuggly Throw Pillows
Pile some throw pillows on your sleek, minimalist couch and watch magic happen. Pile them up, toss them around, and fluff them up; they don’t have to be perfectly structured around the couch—sometimes imperfection is great!
The trick is to select throw pillows with a variety of textures and colors. Also, avoid adding just two pillows on the couch, keep four to five at a minimum.
Plus, if you’ve always admired the large fuzzy pillows in the store but have yet to purchase one, now is the moment! It will go well with your existing decor.
Nothing makes your home more inviting than the soft aromas of candles gently wafting through the room. The options of scents are endless, from pumpkin spice latte to bubblegum to peppermint mocha!
The result is not just a delicious-smelling room but also a room that feels calming and relaxing. You can place candles on your center table or side tables and experiment with the size and shapes of candles to create a cozy nook.
Add Layered Rugs
Choosing a sisal rug is a great idea when the weather outside is sunny, but as fall comes along and winter looms ahead, it’s time to layer up.
If you have a rug, all you need to do is layer a cozy or flat weave rug on top for warmth, texture and interest. You can also pair a solid rug with a well-decorated one for contrast and dimension.
The result is an interesting aesthetic that’s unique to your home!
Bring Nature In
Indoor plants and fresh flowers have a lot of promise for your living room design, so don’t overlook them.
They not only add a splash of color to your room, but they also make it appear more relaxed and inviting. Having nature around, particularly if you live in a city, can help you relax and reduce anxiety and stress.Plants also add the right amount of coziness you need at home!
Loads Of Blankets
If there’s anything more inviting than fluffy throw pillows, it’s a nice blanket draped over a couch.
Imagine sitting on the couch sipping on a chocolate cuppa, watching Netflix, with a big knit blanket draped over you. Isn’t the thought itself so comforting!
You can play with blanket colors that are calm, like beige, taupe, and grey or even put a fun twist on things with bold color choices like mustard yellow and red! There’s so much you can do with texture because it adds to the homey feel. Try chenille or even chunky knits!
Look For Comfortable Furniture.
While a pristine white couch may look nice aesthetically, it might not look welcoming if you’re planning to spend a lot of time lounging. Plus, it won’t help if you drop snacks or beverages while enjoying your cozy moments!
Luckily, there are many comfortable pieces of furniture to choose from that will be more apt for taking naps. For example, Anima Domus features a wide variety of comfortable sofas that will make perfect additions to your home.
It doesn’t take rocket science to make a warm home; all you need are some layers and texture, as well as a little imagination. We hope our suggestions will help you in making your home a welcoming haven for you.
