Sharing a pass through with the kitchen. the tv room is flooded with light. Its modest size makes it the coziest area of the house, and because of that it is the couple's favorite wintertime spot. "It's so comfortable to just lay around in," Jennifer says. "You sit down and all of a sudden you're falling asleep."
The Milo Baughman settee is currently Jennifer's favorite piece. A recent birthday gift from Raymond, Jennifer found the tufted leather sofa on Etsy and drove 10 hours across Pennsylvania to pick it up. Always up for a design adventure, "It was well worth it," she says. "It's amazing."

What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Surround yourself in softness. Something as simple as a sheepskin rug casually draped over a sofa begs you to close your eyes and nap awhile. Whether real or faux, rich-textured sheepskin evokes coziness and plays a big role in Nordic homes during winter. Using sheepskin in unexpected places, such as on your dining chairs, is both luxurious and enveloping. It adds just enough luxury to feel special and inviting — two important aspects of creating warmth.
Looking up. Filling unused vertical space is a great way to get major impact in a room without shrinking the usable floor area. One large, leafy plant like this fiddle-leaf fig in a corner of the room doesn’t interfere with traffic flow but makes the room feel sophisticated and lively (while helping the background visually float away).Pieces with impact. By choosing big-scale but more simply shaped items, you can create a sophisticated look that feels full size, but not overstuffed, even in a small space. See 10 top plants to grow indoors
