    9. A wood-burning stove added to the cavity of an old brick fireplace in this English country living room by Hart doesn’t take away from any of the room’s rustic charm.

    Consolidate the storage. Still think you don’t have space for a big sofa? Maybe your other furniture is to blame. Individual pieces of storage take up space and can make a small room feel cluttered. Instead, concentrating all the storage on one wall of shelves and cabinets keeps the rest of the room clear for a decent-size sofa. This image also illustrates how cozy a stuffed small room can feel. This is a compact living space, but rather than furnish it with skinny pieces or strive for a minimal look, the owners have embraced the more-is-more approach. There’s a big sofa and an armchair and a coffee table. It’s full, but who cares when the room looks this homey and inviting?

    9. Bring in rustic touches. Country style is an easy way to add warmth and character. Exposed brick, wicker baskets and natural materials are all ways to introduce a rustic simplicity. If you like the look of exposed brick but don’t have an original fireplace or exposed wall, you could consider brick tiles or brick-effect wallpaper.

    The homey one. The cozy factor of this lovely little living room is increased dramatically by that oh-so-inviting fire. Now all that’s needed is a pot of tea and some buttered crumpets and jam.A bare brick wall nearly always adds character, and this one — which gracefully reveals its age — ensures that the wood stove takes center stage. (If you’re stripping back a wall to its bricks, be sure to check your local building regulations and, if all’s well, coat it with a sealant that’ll prevent the surface from crumbling off.)

    Asymmetrical Balance In this room not everything is the same. On one side of the fire place is a tall book shelf that reaches the top, on the other there is a small book shelf at the top of the room but underneath it there is a cabinet with some pictures and a lamb on top. The tall book shelf and the cabinet with the small book shelf both take up the same amount of space yet they are not the same object on both sides.

    The bookshelves and fireplace are cool. The fixture is cool.
