Living Room / June 23, 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.
Another important aspect to consider when designing your living space is durability. Due to the high traffic your living room will likely experience, it is worth spending a bit more on higher-quality furniture and floor furnishings to realize extended use and not necessitate constant repair, refurbishing or cleaning. Choose fabrics that are both pleasing and durable. In addition, choose colors that transition well when you set out new décor items each season.
Bubble-gum pink sofas decorated with bright sherbet-color pillows makes this living room truly stand out. Solid gray-glue walls, a white chandelier, and a geometrical bookshelf balance the splashy couch and pillows. When incorporating lots of bright, bold colors, keep balance and scale in mind so the space does not come across as over-the-top. If this room were to incorporate a rug, it would be wise to stick with a neutral tone to prevent competing colors.
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!
