Averyl Dufour. Living Room. April 16th , 2018.
Add glamour to wallpaper with rhinestones, a touch of sparkle can uplift and give a traditional design modern allure. How to: Use a good-quality, all-purpose clear glue with a fine nozzle to stick rhinestones in place. Work in small areas and use sparingly for a subtle effect.
Make a cool memo board, these self-adhesive tiles can be built up into a shape and mix of colours that suit your living space. How to: Ensure your wall surface is clean and dust-free – it might be worth washing with sugar soap if you are installing the tiles in a kitchen, for example.
Work with original features, give architectural features a modern update with a fresh coat of paint and light retouching. Here original features have been painted to give this living room a modern edge. The black fireplace remains the focal point, and adds a sense of cosiness along with the chunky sofa and rustic wooden coffee table. A wool rug brings texture to the scheme and enhances the inviting feel of the room.
Reach for the sky, take that décor up high when floor space is limited. Here, a small corner of a brilliant white room has been transformed with a column of geometric pattern that pulls the eye upwards to make the most of a high ceiling. The pattern is echoed at the window in a sheer voile, which allows the natural light to filter in for a clean and bright effect. The neat base of a marble floor lamp negates the need for a side table while providing great task lighting for when the sun sets.
