Keeping the 7 elements of interior design in mind, below is a continuation of the previous article.
For a living room to look and feel cozy, it has to include something personal. Without these details the room will feel cool and less welcoming. The most important item you should have in your living room is something that’s meaningful to you and to your family. There are personal things that you love and remind you of beautiful moments adding personality to your space. It can be a piece of art, your favorite book, a wall where you show some photograph of special travels and moments with your family or some other type of a special accessory or souvenir.
The idea is that it shouldn’t be anything that anyone can purchase from stores. Include elements that express what you love to do. Use the souvenirs that remind you of an important trip or experience. This is what’s going to define your living room from everyone else and make the room unique to your home and may feel in your personal space.
Design Tip: LED lighting is best to accentuate these memorabilia. Accent lighting is one of the ingenious ways to achieve a gorgeous looking living room.
The curtains give the living room character and are a wonderful way of introducing color, pattern or texture in this space. Pick an eye-catching look for your living room curtains or pick a solid color with a simple design. Scapes also add an elegant and fresh look to the space so don’t forget to dress up your windows.
Trend Alert! The trend is floor length curtain panels! This look is simple and elegant. Adding curtain panels can be the finishing touch that completes a room design.
Throw pillows are very important for a couple of reasons. The first is COMFORT, sometimes your back might need extra support or you might want to take a nap and have a pillow to rest on. The second is DECORATIVE, pillows offer a wonderful opportunity to bring in different colors, textures and patterns without making a large commitment. It’s ideal to add one and contrast into space which can help you achieve the interior design style that you are looking for. Pillows can be changed with the seasons, so you can immediately change the appearance and fresh home decor more often.
