When I think about how I want my home to feel, the word "cozy" is always at the top of my list. And, after the amount of time I've spent stuck indoors this winter, I have a renewed appreciation for all the little things that make a home warm and cozy.
I thought it would be fun to do a little blog series on my favorite design elements for kicking the cozy factor up a few notches. It seems appropriate to start from the ground up, so my first idea for getting cozy is...

Much the way we layer our clothing in cold weather, our homes should be layered for warmth and comfort. A natural rug, such as sisal or seagrass, draped with a hide or a colorful rug is a great way to add richness and texture to a room. I also love a mix of colorful and patterned rugs piled together.
If you're lucky enough to have hardwood floors, layered rugs add a beautiful softness to them. Placing a rug on top of carpeting adds visual interest and helps to hide carpet you may not be particularly fond of :)
I am loving layered rugs, and I have a few areas in my home that could definitely benefit from this look. I'm on the hunt now for some budget-friendly options. I'll let you know what I uncover.
What do you think of layering rugs? Is it an idea you can cozy up to?
