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.
The living room is often one of the most-used rooms in a home, so when redecorating or remodeling think about how you can maximize utility and comfort. And whether the focus of the room is a home entertainment system or a functional space for conversation, a good way to anchor the room is by using a focal point. Sometimes your living room will have one already, like a fireplace and mantle, but if not you can create your own.
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”.
Create a formal conversation area as your living room`s centerpiece to warm up the space and make it a place that you will enjoy entertaining guests. Use four armchairs arranged around a light glass coffee table and add some delicate décor, such as a vase or a stack of coffee table books. To create a rich, warm ambiance, use large comfortable leather arm chairs and place a wood table between them. If you`d like to create even more seating, try arranging two different sets of arm chairs on opposite ends of a long coffee table and then situating a sofa along the length of the coffee table.
One simple way to inject more personality into your living room is with a simple coat of paint. Paint is a versatile medium that can do so much for your overall design without breaking your budget. Get inspired by these living room paint ideas and transform one of the most important rooms in your home.
Nature and the environment have proven to be a big source of inspiration in interior design and architecture over the past few years, particularly where material choice is concerned. We have seen a rise in popularity of natural materials such as wood, stone and slate as people are seeking to reduce their impact on the environment by choosing products that will last longer and that are readily available.
