It`s interesting to try new things. Sometimes traditional ideas about living room decor aren`t the best solution for a small space. Instead of using blinds for window treatments, use long, flowing drapes because they draw attention to vertical space, thus expanding the area of the room. Your living room, regardless of size, should be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertaining. Here are some of our favorite ways to make it feel more spacious.
Picking up the trend for nature in interior design and wanting to cater to carpet lovers, Danish carpet producer Ege came up with the Out of Nature collection.
Use a fireplace or mantel as a centerpiece to create a focal point in your living room. Choose a deep, rich wood or black fireplace to warm up a room and make it feel comfortable and inviting. For a light and airy vibe, pick a white or light color, such as stone or baby blue.
A room has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal one. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a manner that draws the eye upward. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a stylish way to accomplish this goal. Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined. When you shop for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space.
We see everyday the work of some of the most brilliant minds, designers and architects, that create out of nothing impressive living spaces and yet, we rarely think about their homes and how do they look like. So here we are, “sneaking” inside the house of a designer, Susan Drover from SAM Design and exploring her “imaginarium”.
Her lovely home is located in St. John`s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Simple, yet elegant, Susan Drover`s living space has something that makes you say: “Yes, this is definitely a warm place, where I can enjoy the little things in life. A real home”.
