Your living room is meant for relaxing and socializing. This is a room that should reflect both the architectural style of the house or apartment as well as your personality. To create a living room with a noticeable flare, you should first ask yourself the following questions; How many people do you need to seat? Will the room be for entertaining, for family or for both? Will it function as a formal parlor en? Do you wan to be able to put your feet on the table? And what kind of activities will happen here? Will that be work, art projects or TV watching?
Observe what doesn’t work in the current scheme, and strategize about possible fixes. Do you never listen to music, because the speakers are in the other room. Do you resent the small table when guests come over? Addressing the failures and hassles allows you to create a room that benefits you, as opposed to one that dictates how you live.
Once you have taken all these possibilities in consideration, its time to show you decorating tricks to elevate you and your home to another fabulous level. Here are some of the decorating trick for your living room:
A blast of color in an elegant black and white scheme makes a potentially intimidating space friendly.
Ottomans and Poufs do everything! They are extra seating, footstools and even coffee-table stand-ins.
