Don’t forget that clear furnishings create the illusion of space. The living room below is obviously not a small interior, but a glass coffee table enhances the open feel created by floor-to-ceiling windows.
You can also add to the traditional lure by choosing different bold hues for your living room walls. But when you do that, make sure the colors stand well with your taste and that of the visitors too.
A few rugs in different patterns and shades can really do the trick. In addition, they serve as chic space dividers. This is a great example of creativity, a blend of formal and casual items would do the purpose fairly well; get jumbo sized decorative articles, big flower vases, sculptures or even large lampshades if you want to make a style statement.
Whether you’re stumped by a living room layout problem or you’re looking for ways to change up your space, don’t forget the value of strategically placing your furniture. Not to mention, if you’re looking to buy a new piece or two, consider the needs of the room before making that purchase. A little forethought can go a long way in creating a living room that is both stylish and functional. Happy decorating!
Anything that injects the elusive old age charm to your living room is bound to make you love it. If you do have the habit of storing those sepia tinted photographs of your ancestral home, it would be easier to understand what it means to live around those charming old furniture designs and drapes.
Sometimes the answer is as simple as relying on the furniture you already own. In the next image, a sofa distinguishes a living room from a bar area in a chic family home.
