Experience the joy of coming home to a warm and cosy space. The feeling of cosiness can be evoked in any room with calming colours in warm neutral tones combined with soft, natural and textured materials. The perfect combination of colour, lighting and textured styling elements create a feeling of complete comfort and cosiness in your home.

The use of rich, sensuous textures is a key styling element when creating cosiness in a space. Avoid loud patterns that visually overwhelm the senses and instead choose minimalistic designs that calm the mind and soul.
Soft furnishings such as chunky knit rugs, velvet pillows and woolen knit throws can transform cold into cosy and make a room feel warm and inviting.
Lighting can help transition your comforting space from day to night. To enhance the feeling of cosiness at night, utilise soft warm lighting from a combination of floor and table lamps.
Choose darker hues to create a cosy and comforting feeling in your home. Use relaxing, deep cool tones such as on all the walls of the room, not just a feature wall, to give the room a snug, cocoon feel. Then style the room with soft, contrasting linens and diffused lighting for comfort and depth.
Whether you want to use neutral tones or darker hues to create cosiness in your home, Dulux has a range of luxurious colours that provide pure comfort. If you need help finding the right colour for your design, ask our colour experts at Dulux Customer Service.
