Today’s Monday Mood Board is inspired by ‘the snug’. I think every home needs a snug, so I hope today’s mood board inspires you to create one, too! If you missed my post about our snug (or have no idea what I’m talking about, ha!), you can read this post HERE!
A snug is basically a cozy space with soft comfortable furnishings, a place in your home where you can go to relax and be comfy. It’s ideal for winter!
I’ve shared many times over the years that I think texture is a secret ingredients every room needs (read this post about texture). And that secret ingredient is especially true if you are creating a SNUG!
You’ll notice today’s Monday mood board features many textures paired together. Here are some examples:
There is a cotton / denim fabric paired with a soft velvet ottoman. The chunky wicker texture on the trunk next to a smooth leather with metal nail heads. A mix of throw pillows, each with unique fabric textures, paired with a super soft plaid blanket with fringe. Notice the distressed pattern on the rug offers texture with interesting movement. A textured rattan lamp paired with a metal reading lamp and brass window candles.
A great thing about creating a snug is you can really make use of what you have! It doesn’t have to be perfect to be cozy. Don’t worry if it all matches perfectly or follows all of the “design rules.” Instead, look for textures and pull soft items together. Add some warm lighting to make it extra inviting. Do you imagine yourself curling up there on a winter’s day, feeling snug as a bug? Yay! You’ve got yourself a SNUG!
Mood board source links are below. Remember you can always use any of our mood boards as inspiration for ways to pull various pieces together.

Slope arm slipcovered sofa – This is the sofa I had in my last house, we didn’t have room for it in our new one so we gave it to Courtney! Ours is the extra deep one, which makes it basically the size of a twin sized bed. We used it for guests all the time. Perfect for a multi-purpose room!
