How to Create a Cozy Atmosphere in Your Home with Modern Design and Furniture

It’s common for people to gravitate towards warm and cozy spaces. Nothing compares to a thoughtfully designed, comfortable home that feels so lived-in and loved. This type of atmosphere encourages you to unwind after a long day, curl up with a hot drink and binge watch your favourite show.

Here are some tips on how to furnish and decorate your home to achieve ultimate comfort, while still adhering to a modern style!


Adding textures throughout your home is arguably the easiest way to accentuate a cozy appearance. Typically, to achieve a polished look, homeowners will gravitate towards sterile and industrial designs that have smooth and shiny textures. However, if you want to enhance comfort throughout your home, explore fabrics and materials such as velvet, faux fur, cashmere, tweed, wool and leather to create a softened and welcoming feeling.

One way to add texture to your home is by adding a wool, tweed or velvet armchair and sofa to your living room. When considering kitchens and bathrooms, add towels and placemats around the space to introduce new textures.


Choose leather textured furniture items to make your space appear more inviting! Popular leather items to choose from include an ottoman or an armchair. Once you put these in your family room, you can pair them with soft blankets and pillows that make it easy to sit back, relax and fall asleep while reading a book.

Incorporate Wood

Wood will make a room feel warmer almost instantly, even if it’s just a small amount! Incorporate wood elements such as hardwood floors and wooden furniture including a coffee table, dresser, wood shelving, pedestals, trays and accents.


Layer your space with rugs! This is an important accessory mainly used to add warmth and comfort to your home. Feel cozier instantly!


Adding plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables to any room will bring life to your space! Plants can be a lot of maintenance, however, you can easily purchase plants that are easy to care for, even when you’re away. There’s also the option of incorporating artificial foliage.

Combine the Old with the New!

A simple way to add character to your home is by combining antique pieces with modern furniture. Integrating vintage pieces will add a sense of warmth and charm. Don’t be afraid to mix and match furniture colours and styles. Consider including multipurpose furniture so that you can be more flexible when combining styles.

Include Small Comforts

Accessorize your space using pillows and throws! Change your pillow covers, combine different patterns and styles or drape some blankets across an ottoman, sofa, chair or bed. It will be hard to resist having snuggle time once you add these finishing touches!
