What makes a space cozy? I like to think less of the space, and feel it instead. So for me, coziness is about a certain kind of sensuality. Comfort, layers, ethnic patterns, something glossy and graphic, patina and most of all: memories of good times. Lets not forget a delicate, nostalgic scent on the air, birds chirping outside the window, soft music, and dappled sunlight, or soft lighting at night.
I think about coziness so much, that I though we could chat about each part.
Lets start with...
Every place to sit or rest must be super soft, supportive and restful. For me that means a place to put up my feet, a blanket within easy reach, and plenty of down pillows around to pick and choose from. Also a place to put a drink, and a nice texture under my bare feet.
Next up: layers, pattern, scent, lighting, and of course memories! I have so many house projects to share with you: reno, new lamps, new rug, hanging art (been here three years...just now hanging more than two pieces of art.) Stay tuned weirdoes.
