Inject Cosiness into your Living Room

Now that Autumn is here and the nights are drawing in, it may be time to spruce up your lounge in anticipation of the cooler, cosier evenings.


Let’s start with colour. If you have a larger space to work with, bolder, richer shades can work to your advantage. Spicy energizing colours, such as yellows, reds, and oranges, evoke warmth and vibrancy. The soothing colours of blue, green, pale grey, and purple, on the other hand, are a better choice for creating a soothing atmosphere in your living space.


Pick a sofa style that fits the character of your home as well as the size of your living room. Need help measuring up? You can find our helpful guide here. A couch’s depth and angle are also important, as this affects how comfortable you feel.


We suggest choosing a neutral-coloured fabric for the sofa, which will allow you to experiment with colour in other areas. You can match vibrant accent walls with soft furnishings such as throws, cushions and rugs, which will help balance the room while adding soft textures. You can order free fabric samples here to help you plan your scheme if you opt for a Made to Order Style.
