Living Room / June 15, 2018 / .
Since you do not have the luxury of space, you can not just throw a bunch of pretty things together and hope it will work. It is important to first consider all the pieces of furniture you will need in order to create a welcoming, livable space. Ask yourself questions like Would stools or ottomans work better in the space than armchairs? Would two side tables or stackable tables be a more size-friendly option than one coffee table? Round tables could take up less room than square ones.

Hang bright, graphic artwork to amp up the style of a cozy family room. Here, a floating gallery shelf with blue prints puts a surprising contemporary twist on a traditionally rooted room. On the adjacent wall is proof that you can fill a bold-patterned wallpaper with artwork. The key to doing this is to keep the color scheme, in this case, black and white, consistent between the wallpaper and the print.
Create an intimate spot for two within a larger room. Do not forget to think about how you want to use the space. Especially with large living rooms that are well suited to entertaining large groups, it can be easy to overlook the fact that we are not always hosting parties! Try tucking a small card table against a bare wall along with a pair of elegant chairs. You can use this space for reading, chatting or even a cozy dinner for two.
