Home, Décor: How to Make a Luxurious Home Cozy

The fall season is the perfect opportunity to get comfortable and cozy with friends and family. Transforming a house into a snug utopia comes with its own challenges, especially if the humble abode is not so humble.

Here are some helpful tips for how to turn a luxurious house into the ultimate cozy home this fall with these helpful suggestions.

Fill in Negative Space

One of the reasons a large home is so luxurious stems from the abundance of negative space, which encourages a classic, flowing Feng shui. An open design detracts from that cozy feeling, so breaking that house up into more defined sections is crucial.

A quick fix for an open layout is to add rugs, lamps, screens, and seating areas in negative spaces. A reading nook tucked into an empty corner "shrinks" the size of the home without sacrificing that opulent style.

Filling in empty parts of the walls also gives the appearance of warmth. Fall-themed décor can give that cozy feeling, but steer clear of any tacky decorations that ruin the grandiose of the home.

Gather 'Round the Fire

If the house features a fireplace, especially in a communal sitting area, make that the focus of the room. Placing an elegant rug with plush floor-seating options in front of the fire gives the home that classic warm and inviting vibe. Pull the furniture closer to the hearth, creating an intimate space for the family and guests to enjoy the ambiance.

Remember, as welcoming as a fireplace can be, always practice proper fire safety to ensure the lovely autumn night doesn't turn into a dangerous thriller.

Warm With Warm Lights

Cool lighting is perfect for a luxurious, modern look throughout a large home. However, after a long autumn's day of work, warmer lights are essential! Studies have shown that warm lighting elevates feelings of relaxation and calms the mind.

Here are a few ways to achieve relaxing, warm lighting:

  • Lampshades
  • String lighting
  • Candles
  • Warm-light lightbulbs
  • LEDs with warm/cool settings

Change the lighting setting between seasons, focusing on warmth during the fall.

Float the Furniture

To promote the grandeur of a home, most people space out their furniture to leave an open-air layout. Instead, float the couches, chairs, and other living room décor to create sections within the room for that cozy look—this effectively turns a more prominent space into a tighter, warmer area.

Remember that attaining a welcoming style isn't solely dependent on furniture placement—this floating method encourages family and friends to congregate together, contributing immensely to a cozy feeling.
