How-To: Create a Cozy Corner

While the brick walls and built-in seating areas on the perimeter of this living room have the potential for chilliness (in looks as well as temperature), this possibility is assuaged by the super-cozy seating area tucked into the corner.
Creating your own cozy corner is a perfect way to transition into Fall weather. And, if you have kids returning to school, you can make this corner serve double duty as a reading corner as well.

If you're creating this space on the floor, as opposed to the built-in seating shown here, start by laying down a small area rug (3-x-5 feet is a good size). Then, pile on floor pillows, poufs, or bolster pillows. A light throw blanket is always a good addition as well. While this type of floor-level corner may not work well in all rooms, a more relaxed or bohemian interior can easily adapt to accommodate it.
