Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 18:09:25 PM
Pare it back with wood, think about alternatives to traditional living room furniture, such as the three-piece suite. It’s still possible to have a cosy area for relaxing and reading with less space-greedy furnishings. Swap an upholstered armchair for a wooden rocker with cushions; and bookcases for slimline ladder-style shelving. Wash walls and accessorise with subtle colour.
Transform empty space into a gallery, if wall space is tight in your living room, make your artistic statement in an unexpected place. Fix two hanging mounts onto your door – one at the top and one at the bottom – to stop the the picture moving when the door opens.
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.
