To receive friends there, to share an evening with family or two, or simply to relax during the evening: it is good to spend time in the living room … especially when you are comfortable there! We reveal all the secrets – and 20 great ideas! – to set up a cocooning lounge in which you will love to chill!
Cozy and sophisticated at the same time, the velvet sofa is a safe bet for a cocoon lounge! We like it in a deep color, like this sublime blue model, but it also works in terra-cotta or curry yellow: it all depends on your decorating desires!
For a cocooning living room with a resolutely “slow life” atmosphere, we love the soft crumpled linen sofa. A natural material, very soft to the look and to the touch, in which it is good to curl up!
It’s hard to give up your sofa, even to set up a cocooning lounge … especially when it comes to such a stunning rattan bench! A good idea? Customize it by playing with the accumulation of cozy cushions! And here is a sofa on which it will be good to curl up!
In large braided stitches or macramé style: the round wool pouffe is a basic! Not only does it offer additional seating – always welcome in the living room – but in addition, it exudes a warm atmosphere. Do you have enough space? Dare to collect them, by varying models and colors, for a gentle mix’ n’ match!
It brings a touch of originality while remaining terribly cozy: the faux fur armchair is a must have in a cocoon-style living room! Last essential of the cocooning lounge: the carpet! If you have plenty of space, you can even play the accumulation card.
An essential accessory to curl up in the living room like in a cocoon, the plaid is available in infinity, and we like it! The most trendy? The large mesh version, of course!
The cocooning lounge, a winter lounge? Yes and no! When the temperatures rise, we simply opt for a cotton blanket. Not sure that we need it to keep us warm, but what is decoration!
For a resolutely cozy living room, we forget the bare walls: paintings, photos, framed memories… We allow ourselves to crack! A good idea? Dare to DIY, for a 100% unique decoration!
Curtains, a detail? Certainly not! Nothing like a bare window to diffuse an icy impression in the room! To dress it up without compromising the light, nothing could be simpler: just adopt clear fabrics. We particularly fall for the crumpled linen, which brings a touch of charm to the living room!
Having large volumes is good… but not necessarily cozy! For a cocooning-style living room, we, therefore, focus on the coverings: very wide parquet strips on the floor, a beautiful print on the wall … both fresh and cozy, this living room has everything!
For an even more cozy effect, we dare to paint the ceiling in the continuity of the wall. And here is a living room that literally turns into a cocoon, thanks to this easy-to-achieve “cube” effect!
The secret to a true cocoon salon? Sweetness, of course! We, therefore, forget any idea of rigour when arranging the furniture. The trick that changes everything: take the sofa off the wall and, above all, dress it up. Here, we love the green backdrop, which brings a very natural touch.
