Living Room / April 14, 2018 / Esme Jean.
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.
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!
In a coastal living room, blue is the obvious paint choice for walls but you might not realize how essential it is. Since you want your space to mimic the feel that the ocean gives you, blue is instantly calm against your creamy whites and natural accents, making you feel cool and relaxed like the ocean does.
One way to make a room look elegant and well-designed is to let one colour dominate the space. A sophisticated shade such as dark grey is the perfect option for bringing modernity into the hall. Of course, you can always use subtle accents such as colourful throws and cushions to break the monotony.
