How to Make your Home Cozy with Modern Design
There is a stereotype with Modern design... that it can’t be aesthetically pleasing and cozy. Yes, modern design is shaped by clean shapes and lines which can be hard to find comfort in that. But, believe it or not, with just a few additions you can make your home modern but also, cozy, warm, and inviting for the winter months.
It is that time of the year to snuggle up with a blanket, your cup of joe, and watch Netflix in your cozy home! Here are a few tips to make your Modern home the perfect place to snuggle up and watch your favorite show:
If you have ever been to a hospital or a doctor’s office, you know that hell hole is characterized by smooth, shiny walls and absolutely no color...NOT COZY. So, you take that industrial design feel and do the opposite. HA! But seriously, adding layers of texture to your home makes it more inviting. When you add faux fur, velvet, or wool, the space is softened, creating a cozier feel.
2. LEATHER/ FAUX LEATHER
While adding texture to your home, also consider adding leather. Even just one piece of leather furniture, armchair or ottoman, can warm up an entire space. If you add a couple fluffy pillows or throw blankets, it will add that much more to the comfy feel. Soft leather is inviting, comfortable and easy to fall asleep while watching your favorite show!

If you already have furniture in your home that you don’t want to change, just adding decor can be enough to change the feel of the space and make it cozier. Consider adding the go-to items, throw blankets and pillows. Just adding these layers can make any space feel warmer! Even adding a rug can help ground the space or adding some flowers can give the space more personality.
Of course, lighting had to come into the picture. It is the last, but definitely not the least. Sometimes, bright lighting can be a bit overwhelming and even uncomfortable. Consider switching some of the bright light bulbs in your home to ones with bronze hues. This will make your living space feel so much more welcoming as it will soften the space. Lighting is a simple change and can make all the difference in the color scheme and aesthetic of the room.
