7 Cosy Living Ideas

Design Inspiration Lifestyle Guides

Autumn is all about retreating to the warmth and comfort of our homes and enjoying the cosier things in life. Read on to discover our top cosy living ideas so you can bring Hygge levels of cosiness to your home this season.


1. Use a warm colour palette

Nothing makes you feel cosier than being in a room decorated in a warm and inviting colour palette. Think burnt amber, ochre and tangerine - anything with an autumnal vibe is a go-to shade for instantly leveling up the cosiness of your home. These rich colours add depth and dimension to your space while framing your furniture with a stunning backdrop too.


2. Get cosy underfoot

If you also hate walking on cold floors, you’ll love our next cosy living idea. Rugs are a great way to add a splash of colour to a room and, what’s more, they make those dreaded early morning walks to the kettle a little less chilly. Make a statement with a bold patterned rug or keep it simple with a classic colour block design, the choice is yours.


3. Find love at first sit

No cosy living room would be complete without a super-comfy sofa. Whether you like to stretch back and relax or snuggle up in a pillow fort, you’ll find the perfect sofa for you in our collection. For extra cosy points opt for a velvet sofa - they feel so luxurious and soft which is a big plus during the colder months. And if you’re looking to really take your relaxation to the next level, consider a matching footstool so you can unwind and stretch out while you watch your favourite show.


4. Keep it crafted

Rustic furniture handcrafted from oak is a must in a cosy living space. It feels homely yet makes a statement and will give your space those ‘cosy cabin’ vibes you’re looking for. Our beautifully crafted oak sideboards and oak coffee tables are stylish additions to your space and lend an effortless Scandi-inspire sensibility to your home. Plus, we love their intricate wood grain finishes that show off the natural beauty of our woods and forests that look so beautiful at this time of year.


5. Layer up the layers

As the nights draw in it’s time to dust off your blankets and throws and fill your sofa and bed with as many cushions as you can! During the colder months, you want your home to feel as warm and cosy as possible and soft textures are the easiest way to do this. Our top picks? Fluffy throws and statement cushions add a pop of colour to your space and make ‘big nights in’ even better.


6. Create a cosy reading nook

There’s nothing better on a cold winter’s night than coming home, lighting a candle and snuggling up on your favourite chair and escaping into a good book. To design the perfect cosy corner, look for a lounge-worthy armchair, a stylish side table and a table lamp to create the perfect autumn ambience. We love pairing a chair with a statement silhouette alongside an oversized cushion too for off-the-chart snug levels. And if that isn’t cosy enough, throw on an electric blanket or hot water bottle too!


7. Create an autumnal wreath

We love an excuse to get creative and what better way to do it than by creating an autumnal wreath. While they’re often hung outside, we like using them to bring a touch of nature inside to celebrate the golden beauty of the season. Country Living has an easy, 5-step guide to create your own here.
