While banishing clutter might help a smaller living room feel more open, if you’re a fan of the cosy, lived-in look such a pared back scheme will do little for you. But small doesn’t have to mean bare and characterless. Try the classic combination of dark leather armchair and traditional fireplace – there’s nothing like it for creating a warm, cosy environment. Add much-loved items and accessories – in an interesting, character-filled scheme, no one will be thinking about how small the room is.
Install trim work and crown molding to create architectural features that make a strong visual impression for a living room that is definitely upscale. Add artwork to transform the interior decor. Blank walls or outdated artwork makes a room look poor. Invest in some new pieces or DIY art on your own.
Pure, harmonious shades of white and cream are a timeless decorating theme. Mix textures and abstract patterns inspired by Nature to make a fresh contemporary living room that would be at home in town or country. Mix painted furniture in shades of milky white and Bone with touches of natural wood on shelves and table tops. Use open back shelving to show off a feature wallpaper. Layer up texture and white on white patterns on sofa cushions. Choose different tones of white and natural in relaxed country linen. Showcase art work and collectibles in an eclectic mix of box shelving and different styles of frame on walls. Combine delicate ceramics with milky glazes and the pattern of lace with smart contemporary glass and wood pieces.
The living room is the first room guests see when they enter your home. The windows are also the first ones people will see in the front of your home. This is why choosing the best living room windows is critical. Make your first impressions count!
