Cozy colors to think about are as follows:
- Reds, yellows, oranges, gold
- Light greys, blues
- Dark greys, purples, greens

Velvet is a popular trend for sofas at the moment. Consider this if you want to replace your seating options. They give your living room a luxurious feel and also offer interesting texture to the room. Additionally, try a vibrant color that makes a dramatic statement when combining it with other patterns.
