Layer texturesA great way to make a property feel warm and welcoming is to add fabric, textiles, plants and natural surfaces. “For a cosy look, it’s about bringing in texture,” David says. “Do that through layering rugs, introducing plenty of cushions and throws, and also scattering around plants. These are really simple and cost-effective additions that will take your pad from being a beige rented box to a cosy home.”Victoria Jackson adds, “Bold cushions can update a sofa – especially in a furnished space where you have little control over your furniture – while rugs, pretty bed linen and throws can brighten up any room and add interest.”
3. Double up on rugs Don’t hesitate to layer rugs to bump up the texture in a space. For a winning combination, pair a neutral-coloured rug that has lots of texture with a patterned one. For example, the designer of this room used a natural-fibre rug to add more warmth to the white-and-grey seating area, then put a smaller patterned rug on top for a hit of colour. Alternatively, lay a high-texture accent rug (like a fuzzy sheepskin or a cowhide) on top of a patterned area rug.
Go green Welcome the outside in with plenty of leafy plants and vases full of foliage. Oversized specimens such as fig trees, palms and monstera can sit in baskets or pots on the floor. Smaller plants, particularly succulents, should be positioned on bookshelves, windowsills or bedside tables to provide a soothing green glimpse.
