Add Texture: 

Look at any room that evokes a feeling of coziness and you’ll notice a variety of textures. There are tons of ways to add texture to a space. Here are a few of my favorite ways:

    • Throws: Nothing says cozy quite like a few well-placed throw blankets. Use one on the end of your bed, one draped over the sofa or one carefully tucked into a floor basket.
    • Rugs: The texture and pile of your rug will add texture and aid in the overall feel of your room. Moroccan shag rugs are perfect for casual, boho-feeling spaces while a sisal or jute rug lends the perfect touch of beachy to a California cool space.
    • Couch: Want to up your coziness in a huge way? Then opt for a velvet couch. It brings sophistication, class and a ton of texture to any living room.
    • Woven Baskets/Bins: Natural fiber baskets give yet another texture to an empty space. They can be added a variety of places from entryways to living rooms, bedrooms or even bathrooms.
    • Pillows: An easy and inexpensive way to add texture to a room is to swap out a few standard pillows for pillows that are highly textured. Try out faux fur pillows, crocheted pillows, or even pillows with embroidery or embellishments (like these amazing Anthropologie pillows).
