Five elements to make a cozy home

It’s easy to recognize a warm and cozy home.  Is that feeling of
familiarity and honesty that invites you to stay longer, put up your
feet while asking for more hot coco and praying you don’t have to leave
ever again.  That’s the feeling we all want in our
homes notably because our homes are the best reflections of our real
selves.  Hence it would be practically impossible to have a  warm heart
and not have a warm home or vice-versa as it’s equally impossible to
create fake characters of our home.  The great news
is that the process to make a house feel like a cozy home may be even
easier to tackle than we all think.  Here are five simple elements to
consider.

 ADD COLORS

While all-white interiors can be very relaxing, colored makes
homes cozy.  By colorful interiors I mean spaces with either warm tones
or full colorful ones.  Colors have a special magic to bring out the
soul in the room and it’s also the easiest way to change
things around.  Usually warm and dark colors provide a better result at
accomplishing coziness.  Painting a wall, upholstering a sofa or adding a
colorful rug are only a few of the ways to bring color inside a home.

APPLY SOME LAYERS

I’ve never seen coziness without layers.  Layer is what gives a home a
sense of lived-in and reality.  Steps such as adding a smaller rug on
top of an existing one, placing a chair in a corner or laying a throw on
a bed are only a few of the many ways of
adding instant layers to a home.

INJECT LIFE

Plants and flowers can immediately transform a home.  It could also
say a lot about the homeowner lifestyle.  Either real or fake fire could
be one of the warmest elements in a home.

FLASH THE FAMILY HEIRLOOMS

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.  Don’t be afraid to use your
family hand downs.  That’s what makes your home yours.  Antiques or old furniture conceive perfectly enveloped rooms.  If you don’t have
anything handed down to you can find great
pieces at affordable prices at a flea market.


DISPLAY BOOKS 
An added bonus is if the books are old, you know patina is a good thing.
