The smartest thing you can do for your small space: choose compatible furniture. Nothing adds visual clutter like over-sized pieces in a compact area. Try modular furniture instead! Pair two small ottomans to form one long coffee table. When it’s time to open up the room, move them to the side, or use them for extra seating.
Choose elements that are neither harsh nor extreme. If this is going to be the primary space for guests, avoid colors that are too severe or gender specific as these could alienate some of your guests. Primary colors and neutrals are always a safe bet. Lighter, brighter colors work best in when used sparingly.
Lighting plays a significant role in the success of your decoration. It does create a good ambience. It adds to the shine and glitter of the room, also making our moods shine and glitter. It can spur our senses and raise our oxytocin levels which are responsible for emotional joy. Also, scented candles can bring in an additional spark to the room.
Many homeowners choose furniture from the inside out, while others prefer to let the architecture of their home help decide their furniture options. This is perfect for homes that love to mimic streamlined retro furniture to counterbalance expansive windows and views. Many architects over recent eras were also furniture designers. Dig into history to find out if your favorite architectural style would complement your furniture too!
If you’d like the room to look cohesive and well put together, then the color you use on the walls, in this case a shade of turquoise, should also be included elsewhere in the room, in the form of accessories such as an ottoman, a lampshade, etc. the colors don’t have to be identical. You can pick one color to use as an accent in the living room and incorporate it using a variety of patterns. Although each with their own unique design, the elements will be linked through color.
