Living Room / January 12, 2018 / Leah Venegas
Living rooms are usually the largest spaces in a house and hence it is easy to experiment with textures in this room. Instead of matching finishes and textures in your furniture and décor pieces, mix and match textures to create a warm, lived-in air. Whether you to choose to have a sofa or not, scatter throw cushions over your seating to make it look inviting. A rug in the center of your room will not only make the space feel cozier but will also help define the living room design and bind its individual elements together. Curtains are another living room design element where you can experiment with textures and the effect it has on the room. For small living rooms, choose light sheer fabrics while heavier silks and cottons are better suited to expansive living rooms. Even the texture of your curios impacts the room. For contemporary styled living rooms, pick sleek metallic accents and for more traditional living rooms pick organic wooden knick knacks.
To give your living room a warm and comfortable appearance, pick furniture with soft curves and plush seats. Be careful however of how the piece will look in relation to the size of your living room. While heavy carved wooden furniture will complement a spacious living room, it might overpower a compact living room. These smaller living rooms are better suited to light, contemporary furniture. Instead of choosing regular rectangular coffee tables, pick a table that is rounded or organic shaped.
