Every home should have a sense of comfort and warmth. Although some design styles are more comfort-oriented than others, almost all of them incorporate one or more of the following elements to add a sense of livability:
WAY #1: Add Fabrics
Upholstered pieces, slipcovers, throw pillows, and other fabric-covered components add instant comfort. They make it easy to want to “snuggle up” in a room.
WAY #2: Incorporate antique or vintage pieces
Antique or vintage pieces add a sense of history and balance. They ground the space and beckon visitors to come in and relax.
WAY #3: Mix up the wood!
Incorporate different colors and styles of wood in your furniture pieces. Avoiding “matchy-matchy” furniture prevents your room from becoming boring and predictable. It makes the space feel approachable and gives you permission to “kick up your feet”.
WAY #4: Add photos or personal mementos
Pictures and personalized elements make a house feel like a home…. Like the homeowner truly loves it there! Visitors are welcomed into the space with a sense of understanding about the homeowners.
WAY #5: Add natural elements, such as wood, plants, and shells.
Bringing a touch of nature inside a home adds a sense of unity with the outdoors. Everyone connects on some level with nature, so incorporating this universal component adds instant comfort.
