Enjoy the warm and cozy atmosphere in your living room all winter. Redesign the space and welcome the New Year with an inviting and comfortable living room. An intimate conversation area will inspire a meeting for a long chat over a cup of warm chocolate.
Textures, natural elements and light create a real atmosphere. If you have a formal room, a slightly relaxed atmosphere with some suggested casual comforts will help create a space that feels cozy and inviting.
To create a conversation area, take the sofa away from the wall if necessary, leaving no more than 8 feet from the front of two parallel sofas or one sofa and two armchairs.
Throw and pillows
If you have enough furniture to create a “U” formation, make sure there is at least 18 “between the coffee table and the furniture gathered around it. Bring color and texture with throws and cushions. The idea is to create a place where someone would love to sink in and read a book. or have a long conversation.
The coffee table is an essential “basic item” in the conversation area, allowing family and friends to have a place to read, drink, or even play board games. Even a suggestion from one of these activities displayed on the coffee table will liven up and relax the room.
Bring out the color and texture
Accentuate color and texture with candles, collectibles, natural elements like pinecones in a bowl or basket, vintage books, or other table displays. Unite the look by placing coffee table accessories on a tray or large plate. Woven fabrics are also suitable.
A rug or rug under the furniture will tie everything together and add a layer of texture and warmth, increasing the “cozy” factor of the room.
Side tables can also be used next to chairs and sofas, being careful not to block the easy entry into the conversation area at least through one end. The side table provides another opportunity to personalize the space with accessories, and is required to hold a lamp or candle for beauty and function.
By bringing natural elements, rich textures, and a personal touch to your image or collection, your room will be attractive and inviting. Let the conversation be beautiful or deep, and enjoy it indoors when it’s too cold to go outside.
