2. Add Rugs:

Walnut and dark finishes are the natural go-to for making a space feel cozy and lived-in.  It’s also very versatile in that it acts as a neutral, so it looks good with just about any color. Cherry, oak, and maple can have the same effect and can feel modern in a light, neutral space.

6. Let it Glow 

Create a comfortable and cozy ambiance with soft lighting. Opt for lamps with a diffuser to offer that warm glow or consider switching out your light bulbs. For a warmer, more golden glow, choose bulbs with 2,700 Kelvins or less.
