Dear Style Studio team,

I can’t figure it out on furniture placement. My entry faces a wall and I have two parallel walls that can be used. How can I configure my living room and make it cozy?

Best,

Dear Carmen,

Working with the architecture of your room, it appears you have the best layout. We have provided you with a simple layout to clarify a few suggestions we have to put the comfy in your space.

Simple Cozy Layout

A more structured sofa with a tailored slipcover is a great place to start. Toss plenty of fluffy pillows on your sofa … mixing prints and solids. Next, we recommend adding an easy side chair upholstered in a print fabric like Samara Spice Suzani.

Finish off your area by adding a round table with a burlap tablecloth topped with a lamp for generous lighting. Try using a larger rug to better define your space.

Dehaviland Distressed Black

You might consider placing the Dehavilland 2-drawer console at your front door to provide a stronger sense of entry.

Any area can feel more relaxed and comfortable by adding a collection of your favorite books. Pull all of your favorites in a corner bookcase to give your unused corner a purpose.

The last recommendation from our team is to add a couple of Leather Poufs as extra seating for your unexpected guest.

By building on a simple layout, a room can be refreshed by refining all the elements that are currently in place and then adding a handful of inspired and intentional pieces to provide an unexpected surprise.

Happy Decorating!
