how to make a big room feel cosy
Drape throws over chairs and sofas, layer with cushions, and position a rug or two on the floor to create textural and visual warmth.
If you can’t fill the entire space, make a cosy “zone”. In this room, the rug, dining table, chairs and lamp sit in the centre.
Add colour. If you prefer a neutral palette, choose paint shades and furniture that have warmth, like this grey wall colour.
Wall panels and crown mouldings can resemble an office interior if painted all white, so Mette went for two-tone warm grey walls in the dining room. The sculpture on the floor belonged to her dad and she found the star at Ikea.
