‘Cozycore’ is an emerging trend that everyone loves this season. It is rooted in classic design theories, such as Hygge, a Danish concept focusing on enjoying simple pleasures and basic comforts. This aesthetic is easy to implement in your own space. It is not only for homeowners, but it is also ideal for apartment living at The Landmarks Lofts & Garden. Here are some great tips for making your space as cozy and inviting as possible during the chilly winter and fall months.

Adding Sophisticated Layers

Adding textures and layers is a great way to create depth and dimension in your space. You should implement various textiles into your design, such as rugs, window treatments, and throw pillows. Using different patterns can help to add layers as well.

Lighting for a Cozy Mood

Changing your lighting is the easiest way to add warmth and a cozy autumnal ambiance to any room. You may want to avoid harsh overhead lighting and focus on lighting features like candles, string lights, and accent lamps. Using incandescent light bulbs instead of fluorescent can also create a warming glow.

Natural Rustic Design

Natural and rustic decor and furnishings can make your space feel more organic and pay homage to the great outdoors. This will help you feel calmer and immersed in nature. Consider walking a trail or fishing at the nearby Fischer Park for inspiration. Taking in the scenery may spark your creativity. Adding indoor plants, natural wood grains, organic textiles, and a natural color palette are great starting points. Lastly, to truly achieve a cozy aesthetic and feel at ease in your surroundings, you should prioritize comfort over all else. Choosing plush and comfortable seating and having books, board games, and warm drinks readily available will help tie your design together.
