Living Room / June 25, 2018 / .
Add coziness with a screen. In a large, open space, you may want to create an area that feels more protected and intimate, decorative screens are your friend for this. Partially folded and placed behind your sofa, a screen will create the impression of a smaller room without stopping the flow of the room. Comfortably fill a large space with an L-shaped sectional. Large, modern spaces are especially suited to accommodate a great big L-shaped sofa. This piece screams comfort!
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.
Grey living room ideas should not remind you of a rainy day. Use a neutral background as the canvas for pops of bright color, clean lines, and funky patterns. In this living room, a coat of chic gray paint on the walls, a handsome stone fireplace, and chocolate brown tables give a foundation to the bright plants, art, and accessories, which keep the room from looking cold. When you feel like a change in the color scheme, simply swap out the accessories for a whole new look.
Instead, aim for a light and airy feel, with smaller or more delicate-looking furniture, and emphasize light and bright through neutral hues, lots of natural light and mirrors to create the illusion of extra space. Wicker or Victorian-era wooden furniture can instantly open a small space. Light blues and yellows can make a cramped space seem larger, and less bric-a-brac on your tables and walls can create an uncluttered and hospitable design.
