The Perfect Home: We’re Talkin’ Comfort

Comfort means different things for different people, and what makes someone feel warm and protected, may make someone else feel empty and exposed. For many of us, though, a perfect home means to have everything in it that we need, and to feel wonderfully comfortable when we're in there, and that's what we're talking about today. Let's take a look at what makes the most comfortable perfect home...

The Perfect Home: We’re Talkin’ Comfort.

Is there anything better than going home to a place where you just feel incredible comfortable? I’d say no! For me, comfort is an amalgamation of what I see when I walk in, as well as how the place feels. A lot of this comes down to what I’ve done with the place; decor, furnishings, the lighting, the atmosphere that I’ve created, all of those sorts of things. Let’s take a look at what the most perfect comfortable home might have as a feature:

  • A warm, neutral toned decorative palette. For some, this might be super bright colours, or deep dark feature walls complemented by brooding tones; but for me, there’s nothing more comforting than the colours we see in nature each and every day.
  • Lots of light, with the ability to dim it and make a much more cosy atmosphere: For me, in an ideal world, this would come in the form of dimmer switches for the electric lights, and a combination of black-out blinds and drapes for the windows. Of course, I’m a big fan of natural lighting, but sometimes the sun blaring in is not what you need!
  • Soft furnishings, especially in winter. When winter rolls around, I love nothing more than snuggling on the sofa with a hot drink, a funny movie and a blanket, surrounded by cushions, so to me, nothing epitomises comfort more than soft furnishings. My ideal home would have plenty of cushions for every seat, and the bed! As well as throws and fluffy rugs to give it a lovely warm feeling in the depths of winter.
  • A great atmosphere! Some light background noise, be it music or a movie, and the warm flickering light of a candle is the perfect atmosphere creator in my mind. Keeping it warm, cosy and absolutely beautiful is key, and my dream home would definitely achieve this.

Of course, the layout of the house would help. Both big, bright rooms coupled with the warm, soft furnishings are a must. I’d love to have an open fireplace in at least one of the rooms, for when the depths of winter arrives and a crackling fire suits the mood perfectly.

So, that’s my dream home; tell me about yours?
