Living Room / February 8, 2018 / Priscilla Douglass.
Most interior designers resort to using mirrors for increasing the amplitude of a space. Including the mirrors in the backdrop of a cabinet adds functionality to living room designs as the shelves can display decorative accessories to enhance the beauty of the room, while the mirrors reflect light to brighten up the living area.
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.
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.
If the room looks well put together, but one still wants a change, look toward the ceiling for inspiration. Create textural elements with 3D panels, strips of wood or board to transform the ambiance of the hall altogether. Either stick with one material or be bold and experiment with a combination.
