We all want to live in a place that feels like home. The colour, the warmth and the cosiness of our surroundings can have such an impact on how we feel about ourselves and what we do at home. But it's not always easy to find inspiration for your colour palette or your furniture choices... so here are some top tips for creating a lovely atmosphere:
Cosy home colour schemes
Keep it simple. The more you add, the less cosy and comfortable your space will feel! Stick to a few neutral basics that can be easily re-styled when needed. Colours such as reds, browns and cream are all very cosy and inviting, but with just a few pieces of furniture that are neutral in colour you'll be able to change the look whenever you like.
Soft furnishing for comfort
Add texture. The more textured your home decor is (including plants, cushions etc), the better it will feel! Try layering blankets or throws on sofas and buy a comfy bean bag that you can lounge about on and maybe even take a nap in.
Add a splash of colour with your accessories. Add some cosy cushions, throws and rugs to add more vibrant colours to the room. You can even add in a few bright plants or flowers for instant warmth! Add some bright green plants or flowers to brighten up your room (or go for fake if yours is like mine!).
Cosy lighting effects
Layer up with lighting colours. Lighting is so important - it's what creates mood! Create a cosy atmosphere with some soft lighting. Use lamps instead of overhead lights wherever possible and place them in areas where you'll be spending the most time. This will create a relaxed and calming mood that's perfect for winding down after a long day.
Create a focal point. A fireplace, mantelpiece or large piece of art can all be great focal points for creating a sense of cosiness in your home. Try to keep the rest of the room simple and add accessories sparingly so that it doesn't feel too cluttered.
With these tips, you'll be able to fine tune the feel of your living space so that it's just how you'd like it to be. You can create a cosy home without too much effort.
Add plants and flowers to give some rustic character to your home
When most people think of adding plants and flowers to their home, they think of keeping a garden. But you don't have to have an outdoor space to enjoy the benefits of greenery; there are plenty of plants that can thrive indoors. Not only do indoor plants look beautiful, but they also provide many health benefits. The beauty of plants can bring you natural happiness that can improve your mood and energy levels. Many plants have a healing effect and can improve the air quality in your house, which is especially important if you have pets or allergies. Different plants can help filter out different toxins so be sure to do some research on what works best for you!
Adding plants to your home is a great way to connect with nature and bring some of that natural beauty inside. Whether you have a green thumb or not, there are plenty of plants that are easy to care for.
Cactus plants are easy to care for and don't need a lot of water. Aloe plants are also easy to care for and have healing properties. If you're looking for something that will add some colour, consider adding flowers like jasmine or roses. These flowers release a sweet fragrance that can improve your mood.
Plastic plants can provide natural beauty to your home as well. There are a variety of plants that come in plastic form, including the popular bonsai tree. Adding a plastic plant to your home is a great way to enjoy the benefits of plants without having to worry about watering or fertilizing them.
No matter what type of plants you choose to add to your home, they will help to bring colour and make your home a more beautiful place.
Wood furnishings carry a natural beauty that is hard to replicate with other materials. If you're looking for a way to add natural beauty to your home, consider using wood furniture and decor. Wood has a warm, rustic feel that can instantly make any room feel more cozy. Not only does wood look beautiful, but it is also a very durable material. It doesn't show dirt up easily and and can be sanded down and refurbished at any time to bring back its lustre. You can also paint wood furniture to match any decor.
Adding wood touches to your home is a great way to add some natural beauty and character. If you're not quite ready to commit to a full piece of wooden furniture, consider using wooden accents instead. Wooden shelves, picture frames or even rugs can add warmth and texture to any room.
Different types of wood such as oak, pine or cedar can give your home a unique look. If you're looking for a more modern feel, try using bamboo furniture and accents. Bamboo is a sustainable material that grows quickly and doesn't require any pesticides or fertilizers.
Adding wood elements to your home is an easy way to bring in natural beauty and create a warm and inviting space. You might consider one of our solid wood wall clocks made from Oak and American walnut. We also stock special exotic timbers such as Zebrano and Wenge that we're able to craft into any size and shape of clock.
There are many ways to add natural beauty to your home, and the best way to find what works for you is to experiment! Try adding plants, flowers, wood furniture or accents and see what gives your home the most natural feel. With a little bit of effort, you can create a cozy home that feels just right for you.
