Living Room / March 1, 2018 / Leah Venegas
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.
For those who like to alter the mood in the living room from one season to another, changing the colour of the upholstery and adding accents and accessories make it easy to achieve. Turquoise blue is a favourite for the summer. Add a contrast floral print on a winged back chair and multi-coloured cushions to complete the summery look. Don’t forget to fill the vases with fresh flowers!
