You can even accentuate the need for tradition with the help of strategically placed rustic items that look aged but keep the overall look contemporary and clutter-free. Personalize your living room with creative and artistic accents that give that feeling of tranquility and comfortable relaxation for you, your family and your guests.
It is worth it if you love the Olympics. You will have fun reminiscing over the 1904 Summer Olympics, or more correctly, the Games of the III Olympiad. Held in St. Louis, Missouri, the marathon was talked about for years. Look up Frederick Lorz, the presumed winner (until someone outed him for his practical joke) and you will have a great story with which to impress your friends. You can tell them the trunk whispered this tale to you.
A small living room can be expanded by taking one of the walls down. Get rid of the wall separating your living room and the kitchen, or your living room and the hall way. But remember, safety comes first. You can always resort to losing a wall to maximise your living space, as long as it won’t harm the structural resistance of the building.
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.
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.
Next, select furniture that is comfortable enough for an afternoon nap, but elegant enough for hosting company. Be sure there is plenty of seating and, if possible, arrange all furniture so those seated in the living room will have a clear view of each other and the entertainment center if one exists.
