The lure of an overstuffed sofa, the soft splendor of a cashmere blanket, the layered touch of multiple textures—there are so many qualities that can give a home the warm and cozies. And sometimes, comfort is all in the eye of the beholder. We asked five top interior designers to spill the tea on what makes a cozy home.
“Nestled in the woods surrounding Ulery’s Lake in Montana’s Moonlight Basin community, this lake cabin blends into its surroundings. We furnished the space using leather, woven materials, and wool—and chose art from local artists to complement the location and add color and life. We brought in leather for durability and vintage rugs for some extra soul. The entire design process focused on creating an inviting environment that wasn’t precious and would hold up to everyday life while still looking beautiful.”
