Living Room / May 19, 2018 / Leah Venegas.
Bring a dull living room to life by changing the curtains. Choose elegant sheers that don’t completely cut out the natural light in the area. Add wood panels to a blank white wall and clad it with tiny mirrors to create a stunning and unique art installation for the room. Step it up a notch by reupholstering the sofas with velvet.
Bring a new look to a hall by changing the texture and colour of one of the walls. Stone, wood or 3D panels are the perfect options for this task. Rather than cladding the entire area, restrict it to a small section such as the background panel of the television to bring a sleeker look to the design of the room.
When you speak of designing a home the first space to come to mind is always the living room. This is probably the most worked area. It’s the place where we spend a lot of time on with the family as well as friends and guests. Hence, it is important for this room to be well-designed, warm and inviting. However, a lot depends on how we use the living room. Living rooms can have a number of functions depending on your lifestyle. For some people, the living room is a formal space meant only for receiving guests. For others, the living room functions as a place to entertain guests and a family room where everyone gets together in the evenings. Depending on the intended function of the room, you can add the cozy factor in different ways. Finding the right balance between a warm and functional living room might take some experimentation, but here are a few easy tips to get your started.
Place a beautiful carpet on the floor in the same tones as the rest of the living room, so that it matches the wallpaper, the runner on the coffee table and the accent cushions on the sofa. Enhance the look with a large floor vase with a dry arrangement. Using neutral shades such as grey guarantees a modern touch to the décor.
