A Cushy Reading Corner

A reading nook with a window, a bookcase and a fireplace may be straight out of central casting, but a super-comfy chair and what designer Amie Corley calls “cozy fixings” can transform any living area. After placing a curved-frame velvet number (from Jayson Home) in this den in St. Louis, MO, she put in a vintage side table for snacks, a rich brown leather pouf (from Serena & Lily) for stretching out, and a swing-arm lamp (by Visual Comfort) for catching every bit of a good book. Rich blue on the walls and trim cocoons the space.

A Warmed-Up Living Room

“Golden, earthy shades are pure, warm perfection. They bring that fall coziness year-round,” says textile designer Erin Barrett. She snuggle-fied the living room of her home in Charleston, SC, with a cinnamon-color sofa by Gus Modern, a gold-toned side table from Target, and a bronze-finished fireplace screen from Kirkland’s. “The minute I saw the vintage-y gilded handprint at a local store, I had to have it!” she says. “Pieces that make you happy are also key for cozy.”

A Posh-Meets-Inviting Bedroom

“A mix of materials that inspires cuddling—like faux-fur, velvet, and linen pillows—makes for a supremely cozy bed,” says designer Amy Kartheiser, who created this retreat for the parents of three kids in Winnetka, IL. “Without textured elements, a room can feel cold and sterile.” Luxe gray grass cloth wallpaper from Phillip Jeffries, a chestnut brown woven headboard (purchased on the couple’s honeymoon in Bali), and the polished brass lamp from wayfair.com blend for a style so soothing, Kartheiser says, “you may never want to leave.”

A Richly Colored Master Bathroom

Sure, you can go with whites and grays to make a bathroom feel all chill…or you could paint your vanity a lush, not-the-least-bit-subtle green. “The color brings the outside in, so it’s fresh and relaxing,” says designer Jasmin Reese. She went with a modern farmhouse vibe for this bathroom in a Chicago townhouse, complete with shiplap painted black and barn-style sconces from Satco. It has the ahhh of a spa—and a dash of oooh, too.
