2. Layers and Layers of Textiles & Textures

Once you’ve found the perfect corner, layer it with textured blankets, faux fur, linens, scatter cushions and a plush rug. Remember that natural textures always warm a space and add character and interest, so use rattan, wood and clay accessories to bring in visual  warmth.

4. Lighting

Whether you go with a wall light or floor lamps, think carefully about where your light should be positioned for ultimate functionality. Even if you are reading on your phone or something like a kindle, you don’t want your space to be too dark. Dimmer switches are a great idea, enabling you to transition between ambient lighting  and task lighting.
