When I think about what I want my house to be, cozy is pretty high on the list. It’s our place to come back to everyday to rejuvenate and find calm so we can work hard and take on the next day. I try to think of that when making most of my decorating decisions, which leads me to creating a lot of spaces in our house that feel cozy, inviting and casual. Fortunately, our house has a few elements that already make it cozy such as our fireplace and built in bookshelves. However, there is one purchase in particular that has added so much cozy-ness to our house.
That thing is…. a rug! Simple, I know, but it’s made a world of difference for us since we purchased one, and now I can’t imagine being in our living room without it. The one we bought in particular is somewhat fuzzy and thick which really adds to the comfy feelings. We purchased one that looks vintage in design, but it’s actually brand new. I love all the vintage rugs that are popular right now, but it was very hard to find one that was the right size and in my price range, so instead I settled for a vintage-style rug to get a similar look. I’m thinking about adding some more rugs in other areas that don’t need to be as large, so I may find a real vintage rug for those areas.
Besides our own house pictured above, here are few other cozy rooms with great rug inspiration:
