How to create a cosy home

with wallpaper

One of the most asked interior questions is ‘how do I create a cosy feel within my home’ and we absolutely understand why, there is nothing quite like walking through your front door to be greeted by a feeling of warmth and cosiness.

Creating a cosy feel within your home will add a calming atmosphere and create the perfect cocoon to spend your much-needed home time.

Play around with different textures

Possibly the most talked about way to add a cosy feel to your home is by using texture and we totally agree, adding texture to your home is an easy way to bring a cosy feel.

When we think of adding texture to our homes we instantly think of a chunky knit throw or beautiful velvet cushions to curl up in with a good book, but this isn’t the only way.

Textured wallpapers are understated yet beautiful and instantly add texture, depth and definition to your walls. The subtle patterns within these wallpapers add colour, detail and warmth, perfect for all four walls.

Stylish and high quality a textured wallpaper can hide a multitude of sins as each is printed on a heavy weight vinyl substrate which helps give a smooth appearance on the wall.

Use of luxe, embellished wallpaper

Embellished wallpaper is another way to add cosy texture to your walls, whether flock or bead this luxurious added detail creates definition and adds an opulent feel. Striking in both warming neutrals or statement deep tones both bring a cosy palette.

Combine these statement designs with velvet furniture and high shine metallic accessories for the perfect combination of cosy opulence, perfect for the luxe trend lovers.

Use deeper tones and jewel shades

Another common perception of cosy homes is that you must style with neutrals. In neutrals we do trust and we are massive fans, but deep tones can be equally as warming.

Wallpapers with dark backgrounds create a cocoon of cosiness and create the perfect base to layer with rich, jewel shades which bring vibrant warmth.

Use warm, soft lighting

Don’t be shy on using pattern if your main aim is to create a cosy home, lighting can play a key roll in creating the much-desired cosy atmosphere.

Let your pattern shine through, but aim for soft background lighting such as a table lamp for a warm glow.

Try metallic wallpaper

Metallic interiors aren’t just for Christmas, we love to indulge in some on-trend metallic all year round. Wallpapers with metallic accents have a warming effect, they catch the light beautifully and disperse a warm glow around your home.

Position metallic wallpapers near a natural light source such as a window, for different levels of shine from day to night, creating a cosy home with a luxe twist.

Bring the outside in

Lastly, we couldn’t finish this blog without showing some appreciation to a cosy style staple. Embracing an organic, natural feel and bringing the outside in has quickly become an interior design evergreen.

Ultra-cosy palettes of warming neutrals and greys bring to life iconic, heritage designs of checks, plaids, trails and tartans.

Layer your home accessories in groups

A key styling tip; layer your home accessories in groups at varying sizes preferably in odd numbers, it is thought that when we style groupings in odd numbers, these naturally capture your gaze, becoming more appealing and more memorable.

3 is the magic number, but hey... there is nothing wrong with 7, 9 or even 11, let your style run wild!
