Looking for cosy living room ideas to warm up this winter? While we’re all spending more time at home, many of us are looking for ways to upgrade our living space during the colder months.
Whether searching for a plush loveseat to curl up in with a good book, or a soft throw as comfy as your favourite jumper, we have something to suit every interior style. Start scrolling to discover cosy living room ideas to try in your home…
1. Set the Mood With Lighting
There’s nothing more inviting than a warm glow from a window on a cold day. To create soft, atmospheric lighting in your living room, swap bright overhead lights for warmly-lit lamps and flickering candles.
Depending on your interior style, go metallic for a mid-century feel with the Al Capone Tree Table Lamp, or minimal with the Terrazzo Table Lamp for a nod to Nordic vibes. Our tip to maximise seasonal cosiness: place your lamp on a glass or mirrored surface, like our Loop Side Tables, to reflect a glow around the room.
2. Warm Up With Colour
If your home is full of chic neutrals, create a Pinterest-worthy cosy living room look with seasonal colour accents. Think rusty reds, burnt oranges, autumnal ochres and rich plums. Start with smaller accessories, adding the Luxe Mustard Cushion to your sofa, or filling the Burnt Amber Glass Vase with pampas stems. Feeling bold? Go for a sofa in a statement shade, like the Jackson Berry 2 Seater Sofa in a delicious jam-like hue.
For those not into bolder colour, opt for metallic tones like yellow and rose gold, copper or brass, radiating warmth into neutral spaces.
3. Layer With Texture
The quickest fix for cosy living room style: mix and match textures. From faux fur to plush velvet, soft fleece to chenille, experiment with layers to create a tactile feel.
The Aspen Amber Throw feels soft as a cloud, and looks particularly inviting when draped over the arm of a sofa. For a luxe look, the Alaska Silver Faux Fur Throw is both chic and oh-so-cosy to cuddle up with on a cold winter’s evening. Pair with tactile cushions piled high onto the sofa, creating a space you’ll want to sink into. Variety is key, so don’t be shy: clash different textures that look good and feel even better when relaxing in plush perfection.
4. Fill the Walls
When we think of the cosiest places we know, country pubs with roaring fires come to mind. The ones with well-worn sofas and mis-matched frames hanging from every wall. Too many blank walls in a home can leave the space feeling a little empty and cold, so hanging a few well-chosen pieces will add character and charm.
If you have large open wall space, try creating a focus point with a gallery wall. Browse our framed art works to get inspired, and opt for warm wooden frames or metallic accents to match the rest of your cosy living room look. For a more pared-back style, balance the room with a large mirror to open up the space. Our Gold Round Square Mirror is a statement piece, featuring a yellow gold frame to warm up bare walls.
5. Go Seasonal With Scent
No cosy living room is complete without a warm and inviting scent. Elevate at-home ambience with a winter-ready home fragrance, from warming spices to sweet berries.
The Cinnamon & Orange Cracker Gift Set smells like Christmas, perfect for a festive feel. Fresh scent fans will love the Eucalyptus & Lime Cracker Gift Set, featuring mood-lifting notes. Or, for romantic nights at home, the Luna Sandalwood & Patchouli Candle is warm and inviting. Strike a match to set the mood, fill our Diamond Decanter with your finest bottle of red and wrap yourself up in a blanket with your significant other. The definition of a cosy night in.
