Cozifications – the beauties in the interior called “Home DÉCOR”
What does the word “cozy” mean to you? When I think about cozy – it means for me cuddling up in a warm blanket on my plush cozy sofa with a cup of hot chocolate on an autumn evening. The best background music is the sound of raindrops on my windows.
These are my cozy memories while I’m in Dubai and missing those beautiful Berlin autumn evenings.
This chapter is about these little things that add a warm feeling to our home – I call it cozifications. Those items that add dimensions to space, like rugs or shags, textiles, throws – and patterns. We can start by adding those little things and we will achieve a warm and cozy feel.
Cozifications create a home that looks loved and lived-in, which in turn creates a home that is loved and lived-in. A welcoming home for your family and friends adds personality. Those are the magic things that turn a house into a home regardless of where you live.
Throws – The mobile Decor
Throws whether made of cashmere, soft wool or cotton, throw blankets are a form of mobile decor that can travel from one room to room slung over our shoulders. As long as they’re meant to be used. They can be just draped over the arm of a sofa, they signal that a room is prepared to offer comfort.
A draped throw over the arm of the sofa is creating an unspoken invitation to cuddle up and feel warm.
Textiles warm rooms. Decorate a piece of woven fabric, like guilt, blanket, or tapestry, that you can drape over a table, lay on a bed, or use to cover the back of the sofa. And for those who own solid-color sofas which is true for most of us, draping something visually interesting over it helps to break up an otherwise bulking mass.
Another cozification décor is candles. Lighting plays an essential role when it comes to creating an elegant mood. The candlelight is hypnotic and flattering. Candles mix best with dimly lit rooms. So keep all complementary lights low so that candlelight can cast its magic spell.
You’re the creator
All the home décor items mentioned in my post will help you creating your cozy nest. You can play around and try different things while styling your space. Try to mix old with new. A newly purchased rug can be overlayed on your already existing rug and it will add visual interest to your room.
Don’t be hesitant when mixing colors and patterned pillows on your sofa. You can stay in the same color palette and mix different textured and shaped cushion on your sofa – it will look dynamic and yet elegant.
The process of decoration should be always fun – if you are finding it overwhelming stop and leave the room and do something else. Look for inspiration on Pinterest or interior magazine. Or visit us we’re always happy to help to create a cozy home.
