Have you noticed the warming trend in neutral color schemes this year? Grays are beginning to lose ground to warm-toned neutrals, helping to create inviting spaces that beckon you to grab a good book and relax for hours. From paint to furnishings, flooring to window design ideas, check out these three options that are sure to cozy up your home.
This peaceful living room has ample light coming in through three, separate single hung windows that also allow great ventilation. The addition of the picture windows above pulls in more natural light which makes the space very inviting. The windows are trimmed with a chestnut-colored wood frame stained to match the hardwood floors and ceiling. The side table, chairs, and coffee table echo this warm wood tone, pulling the room together. The soft, tan wall color is the final touch, creating a serene haven for relaxation.

Walls: Behr Curious Collection N290-4, Windows: Milgard Hermosa® Series vinyl windows in the color Clay.
Woods and warm color tones are known for their ability to create spaces that are both inviting and welcoming. In this space, wrought iron fixtures and accessories pair with deep wood accents in the flooring, ceiling, and windows for an updated mission style feel. The addition of clearstory wood-framed windows near the ceiling, allows sunlight to illuminate and impart warmth to the rooms, inviting guests to linger over a home cooked meal. The neutral wall color effortlessly harmonizes with the warm browns tones throughout the space.

Let in the light and enjoy a stunning view with an elegant wall of windows. Keep furnishings and wall accents to a minimum to avoid weighing down the space. A modern, yet soft, feel is attained with sleek open backed chairs and sculpted wood, free hanging lamp. Add interest to the space and keep fresh air flowing by combining picture windows that do not open above casements that do. The dark wood chair legs and side table anchor the room, while warm, moss greens on the wall create a sense of relaxation and repose.
