Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 17:47:33 PM
Factor in textural pieces, decorating with white on walls, ceiling and floor can leave a space feeling clinical and stark. Take the chill off a compact nook with a homely leather armchair, red floor lamp and woollen rug – all circled around a log-filled fireplace. A tactile cushion and soft throw in viridian green add a final designer touch.
Create an uplifting desk area, give an old chair a new lease of life with a fresh coat of paint. Pick a eye-popping shade in a hardy egg shell and paint just the chair seat and back, leaving the legs unfinished for a contrasting effect. Finish the scene with a crisp white desk and enhance the bright tone with matching desk lamp and accessories.
Make the most of natural light in the room by keeping window dressings simple. If you are lucky enough to have high ceilings, full-length curtains are a good choice as they’ll draw the eye upwards and create the illusion of space, even if the square footage in your living room is a bit meagre. Subtle stripe designs add to the feeling of extra depth. If you do choose curtains, make sure they can be swept away from the window for light or alternatively go for Roman or roller blinds.
