There is nothing quite like going back to a home which is comforting and cosy.
More than ever before, in present times, we are all spending a lot more time at home. It is all the more worthwhile to invest time and effort to make the home one which you would want to spend your time in. Mini effort as simple as stashing slippers by the front door or switching to soft lighting can turn your home into a cozy setting. Here are 10 ways to jazz up that coziness in your home.
1. Play with Textures
When we think of adding texture to our homes we instantly think of a fluffy throw or a chunky rug, but that isn’t the only way.
Enter textured wallpapers- they are understated yet instantly add texture, depth and definition to your walls. Subtle patterns in these wallpapers add colour, detail and warmth.

2. Explore Deeper Tones
A common misconception of cosy homes is that one must style with neutrals. Wallpapers with dark backgrounds however, instantly conveys a different feel, enveloping a room's occupants in a seemingly warm embrace. Dark bedrooms turn your sleep space into a sanctuary of crepuscular slumber when night starts to fall and the stars begin to twinkle. Here are some options of deep tone wallpapers to create a warm and fuzzy atmosphere around the room.

3. Wallpaper your wardrobe
If you’ve found a wallpaper that you love but you don’t want to cover your full bedroom walls with pattern, hang the wallpaper on your closet doors instead.You can hang the wallpapers on the sliding door and use the leftovers to wallpaper the inside of the wardrobe so that no wallpaper goes to waste. How brilliant an idea is that?

4. Wallpaper the Ceiling
Say goodbye to traditional white ceilings. Ceilings are often overlooked as part of the home decor although they can bring a major change in the overall design of the space and cosiness. Covering your ceiling with wallpaper is a fantastic way to add color, pattern or texture to any room and certainly creates a wow moment when you walk into the space.
In Singapore where homes are getting smaller, ceiling wallpapers are great for small spaces where the walls are filled up with furniture and cabinetry so the ceiling wall is the best place to add a pop of color and pattern.

Those odd narrow nooks in your home, like you’d find at the end of a hallway, for example, can be pretty tricky to decorate.

Here's an example below and it reminds us how transformative a little wallpaper can be.
