Decorating a living room can be tricky. It’s not as hard as you may imagine. It’s actually quite easy when you have a flexible Budget and you don’t have to be uncozy or too secured in your home. It’s the same with the décor. All you have to do is either choose the right furniture or the right colours.
Of course, there’s one Colour that I find inspiring and like. It’s the one that is not usually encountered in a lot of other room décors. It’s the one you use when you wish to create subtle focal points in a room. It could be one of the walls if decked out in a nice shade of beige or the ceiling if it has a bold print. In this case we have an example of a traditional living room that has an exotic inspiration.
The colours you choose should be warm and cozy so the décor should not be cold and uninviting. It’s why, with a lot of white and warm colours, it’s best to use cream as a main shade and as a neutral as a cold colour. The need for soft light and warm colours is clear. Also, try to harmoniously combine them and to build a lovely and inviting décor.
For a sophisticated look with plenty of rich colours and a touch of personality, combine both pink and turquoise. You can create a chic and stylish décor with them and keep them separate but together in the same room. For a little bit of drama and drama, paint a rosy colour on a wall behind the sofa and on an ochre wall or a flat mat.
A single colour, less burstiness and a little bit of color can make a stylish and breezy new living room appear interesting. It works well for tall and narrow rooms and is easier to fixate with. Make sure there are plenty of low lying area rugs as well as with the right accessories.
Lighting is your biggest problem when renovating and decorating a living room. Too much light can also be harsh on your eyes and your eyes also doesn’t want to be perceived as a dark, dreary space. Make sure you choose a powerful and bright accent color. It will enhance the whole room’s theme and make the space feel more airy and spacious. It’s also a great way of giving an accent color a makeover.
Another thing you should consider is space. Decide whether or not you want to have a sofa or if you want to have two armchairs. Both of them should be considered a separator between the dinning room and the sitting area. You should also think of the type of day the meals will be. You can’t just put a regular sofa and a small one together in the dining area. Try grouping multiple armchairs around an island to make it easier to interact.
Don’t forget to set the mood too. There’s no need to go overboard when you’re decorating a living room. The right furniture is just as important as the colors and you should create the right ambiance in no time. Let your personality shine through. You can go with a fun color for the wall, in a combination of bold and bright tones or a contrasting shade. The seating area should be clutter free, although that’s not everything. The color should also be fresh and uncluttered. Everyone should be able to concentrate in the space and the décor should be a harmonious mix.
How do you plan on having a large family for the holidays? Perhaps your home can accommodate all of us in a matter of minutes. It’s not a very formal approach but it’s an option that should be considered.
The family members gathering at the dining or at the breakfast terrace these days has to be outdoors but we all prefer a cozy touch to the space even if it’s just a few days away. So place the dining table elegantly against the back of the eat-an-a-half walls and create a cozy seating area with long curtains and wooden floors. If you have an outdoor kitchen you can either have the table placed against a large wall unit or you can place it modestly in front of the window.
The breakfast nook is usually the bigger space. It should be placed to the side, where there’s most potential exposure to the environment, where there’s also the most practical distribution.
