Rustic Romance The charm of this kitchen comes in its rustic wood paneling and whitewashed cabinets. Reminiscent of a log cabin, this kitchen
may be small on square footage but more than makes up for its size with attractive details.
Literary Hideout Cozy spaces are great for hanging out with a book. This small space off the kitchen became an instant library by adding shelves.
A comfy chair and throw rug add an inviting touch and soften the space.
The rich textures of this dining room -- the cool robin's egg blue of the walls, the warm wood of the floors, and the velvety
fabric of the upholstered chairs -- make it inviting. Just add candlelight, and you'll feel like you're in the middle of a
Jane Austen novel.
Stepping Stone Nothing defines a cozy space like the crackle of a fireplace. Even when it's frosty outside, this stone fireplace will keep
you warm and toasty. Be sure to have outdoor pillows and a few throw blankets on hand.
The Golden Age The warmth of this pretty entry room radiates from the mossy green wall color and the golden tones reflecting from the shell
chandelier. Even though this space is small, the mix of textures -- stone walls, wood paneling, wood floors, an area rug,
and even wooden shingles in the next room -- give this entry an aged, collected look.
Charming Nook Small spaces are always comforting, as long as they aren't cluttered. A slanted wall and bold wallpaper add visual impact
and make this bedroom feel like a world of its own, though it's only a few square feet.
Basket Case The pendant lights above this kitchen island are made from woven baskets, which add a relaxed cottage feel to this workspace.
Decorating with natural fibers is an easy trick for making a room feel comfortable.
Darkened Wood This bedroom's forest scene mural literally brings the outdoors inside. By restricting the mural to one wall and keeping the
color scheme muted, this bedroom becomes cozy without being too surreal.
Book Smarts This snug spot serves two purposes as both a dining area and a library. What could be cozier and more romantic than hosting
an intimate dinner party in this old-world library?
Laid-back Luxe A cool blue color scheme makes this small bathroom an instant place to relax. For added comfort, add stacks of fluffy towels
and a pretty flower arrangement.
Shades of Gray Varying shades of gray create a tranquil environment in this bedroom. Balance light and dark throughout, and add drapes around
the bed for another level of tranquility.

Attic Space This charming guest bedroom makes the most of the gable roof. Slanted walls may have deterred this room from being used, but
by working with them, it becomes a quaint guest room. The antique white color scheme and simple bed linens in this room bring
in vintage appeal.
Comfortable Kitchen This full-service outdoor kitchen is a great place for hosting a group, an easy night in, or just an afternoon of reading
near the fire. Make this a true extension of the living room by incorporating the comforts of the indoors, like upholstery.
Together but Separate The black color scheme in this ornate bathroom makes the room feel intimate, and the stone floor, while also adding a rich
texture, helps to bring the outdoors inside. A double vanity makes the space extra cozy as it allows two people to use it
without feeling cramped.
Hollywood At Home A glamorous bedroom can be cozy too. Luxurious bed linens, super soft throw pillows, and great lighting create a comfortable
space no one will want to leave. Pink silk curtains like these cast a soft glow throughout the bedroom.
Sunny Side Up From the floor-to-ceiling horizontal beaded board to the patterns and textures of the bed linens, this sunshine yellow bedroom
is cheerful and layered. The details of the bedding -- the pillows' ribbon trim, the coverlet's scalloped edges, and the rich
contrasting color palette -- add to the room's inviting coziness.
Old World Elegance Using a dark palette throughout this spacious dining room makes it feel more intimate. The dark-washed wood panels add a rustic
backdrop to the elegant dining room accessories.
Open and Inviting This rustic kitchen is open and light with neutral colors and textured wood beams making the space a perfect place to gather.
The barstools transform the island from meal prep to an inviting spot for casual dining and conversation.

Snug Set The juxtaposition of feminine and masculine makes this twin bed set balanced, elegant, and even a little mysterious. It could
be at home in either the mountains or a chic downtown apartment.
Safari Chic Create a sophisticated campfire vibe in your home with a real wood-burning fireplace and an animal pattern rug. Glam it up
with elegant porcelain accents and a splash of raspberry.
Wooden Weave Woven baskets lend a casual feel to any room. This dining room takes homespun to heart with a basket-weave ceiling, which
adds visual interest and texture to an often ignored space.
Warm and Cool Despite its small size, this open kitchen is designed for comfort. The shades of gray, which create a pattern in the backsplash,
are cool and calming, and the natural-stained wooden cabinets bring in a warm feel. In this kitchen, no detail is overlooked;
even the tile floor (designed in an oversized diamond pattern) highlights the room's cozy dimensions.
Quirky Dining Room In this funky dining spot, various styles and time periods are unified by a neutral palette. The mixture of looks and interesting
pieces creates a quirky but comfortable dining nook.
Backyard Bungalow This intimate outdoor space is an inviting spot to socialize with friends or have a romantic dinner for two. Warm natural
lighting, candles, and a punch of red bring some spice to this little nook.
Plush fabrics in pastel hues rule in this feminine yet comfortable living room. With velvets, silks, shags, and animal skins,
this room is all about the sense of touch, which makes it especially cozy.
