One of the latest trends in interior design is all about stepping back. Interior designers used to bring in impressive visuals to a home to create an ambience that promotes relaxation. Now, cosiness is taking the opposite approach.
In the art of the cosy, primary design elements are taking a step back and assuming a background position, allowing occupants to live comfortably with enough space, both physically and visually. Dark coloured walls, neutral furniture, a timber staircase stained to provide a richer colour is what the art of cosy entails.
