At the end of the day--literally--a home must be a home; a retreat from the world, an oasis of comfort and calm. A place to read, to eat and to relax. Cozy homes have been a big part of Apartment Therapy in 2010, perhaps as a reaction to the lingering recession or perhaps as an antidote to the stark mid-century modern aesthetic that has dominated interior design for the past decade.
Whatever the reason, we seem to be gravitating toward coziness. But cozy does not preclude style. In many of these rooms, cozy finds its place alongside glamour, elegance and, yes, even minimalism.
