It’s hard having friends over and not being able to have them sit at the table. That’s because you can’t afford a big table. But that can be solved, if you “relocate” your balcony and turn it into a dining area. Smart eh?
Decorating ideas come in many forms, but the things you need to remember when renovating your living room are the bold colours, sophisticated patterns and the mixture between old and new.
Starting with the graphic wallpaper patterns at an affordable price Ferm Living transformed from a graphic design agency to a company that designs and sells lifestyle products when the owner Trine Andersen re-decorated her own home. You can read about the clairvoyant-inspired beginning of the company on their “about us” page.
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.
Your living room will look modern with a few trendy touches and it will evolve together with your lifestyle into a complex interior design that will complement your personality. Use bold colours and earth tones to create a unique living room arrangement and do not hesitate when it comes to blending old furniture with modern influences.
Your matching sofas don’t need to be ultra-long to get the job done. And don’t hesitate to add pops of color with vibrant pillows. If your space isn’t ideal for the placement of sofas across from one another, try arranging seating in a perpendicular formation, as shown in the next image.
Designed by Poul Henningsen and first created 40 years ago, The PH Artichoke is one of the masterpieces of the house Louis Poulsen. Manufactured in a limited edition of 50, this exquisite pendant lamp is the final and perfected product in a series of variations. If you follow the PH series, you notice that each lamp seems to be a blooming and unfolding sequence, from the smallest lamp variant up to the refined artichoke. It is made from 72 leaves which cover the light source in such manner that one only perceives the reflected light. This gorgeous, golf leaf plated artichoke, with an 840 mm diameter, is an anniversary version that celebrates fine taste, exquisite design and not least, stuffed pockets.
They say a darker paint would look better than a lighter shade for a small room. This is because it would give a sense of depth to wall, thereby helping to create an impression that room is larger than it actually is.
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.
Looking for height as well as a clear separation of spaces? Go with a divider screen, such as a frosted Plexiglass selection that lets in the light while doing its job.
