Plush pillows, breezy curtains and inviting furniture all in soothing and tranquil ambience – when your home is this cosy and comforting, you won’t want to leave at all. The good news is that creating your oasis of relaxation for both you and your guests is not hard to do. Here are 10 homes that got it right with minimum effort, maximum impact.
1. Soothing warm lights are a great idea when it comes to maximising the comfort level in your home. This homeowner went with this tip in the living room and of course, the bedroom, to enhance the tranquil aspect of his home. Go with minimum furnishing to create an open space that is relaxing.

2. A soothing all-white theme in the living room and kitchen helps enhance the comfort level in any space. Like this homeowner, pairing that with mellow down lights and a minimalist style is a sure-winner for cosiness. In the bedroom though, things take on a darker look and feel to create that luxe comfort that’s inviting and relaxing.

The bedroom is definitely the showpiece here, with its boudoir-style interior – a plush rug, neo-classic two-seater, chandelier and heavy upholstery – you want to do nothing more than to just lounge and relax here! Elsewhere, illuminating downlights and the same luxe upholstery create a cosy feel that is elegant and sophisticated. The kitchen with its wooden cabinets is a nod to country-style design that is simple but classy.

9. Using blinds as curtains lets you control exactly how much light you want in, thus creating the right amount of comfort whenever you want.
