Update your furniture. If you don’t have the budget to replace old furniture, just give it an update. New paint, new upholstery or new hardware can transform the existing look into one that looks like it cost a lot more. Rearrange the floor plan. Try a different lay out of your furniture or swap in pieces from another room. Create zones even in the smallest of living rooms, to give a better flow. This will make your living room look professionally styled instead of just pieced together.
Pattern can work as well in small living rooms as it does in large, but it pays to think carefully about where you put it. Wool fabrics are made for cosy country-style firesides, but keep tartans, checks, paisleys and florals confined to throws and cushions on sofas and armchairs, leaving walls for plain paint finishes. Add a natural flooring rug to bring the two sides of a room together.
Give some wow factor to a neutral scheme by packing it with flourishes of florals. Rich claret and crimson shades are matched with the warmth of worn leather in this country living room. Blooms are exquisitely depicted on tea-stained linens; beautiful curtains show off the pattern to best effect. A soft button-back leather sofa adds to the country house feel, while elegant, vintage-style lamp bases and mirrors hint that pieces have been acquired over time.
Paint your living room a light and bright color. Using a lighter color on the walls will make the space seem larger, and the reflective quality of light paint hides dings, scratches and imperfections, instantly upgrading the space.
