The top 4 things you need to know when you’re decorating your living room!
You probably have good “bones” in your living room. You’ve got great lighting, a gorgeous floor, and your furniture is facing in the right direction. But something is still missing. Well, there is something you can do about it! And you have come to the right place :). These quick tips will help you take your living room from drab to fab:
The eye is naturally drawn to, and will follow a pop of colour throughout a space. So you want to make sure that the pop of colour (or accent colour) you have chosen, is repeated multiple times across your living room. If your living room is open to your kitchen, then you should repeat that colour in your kitchen, and that will make both rooms flow together and give that harmonious vibe that you’re ultimately going for!
2. Patterns, textures, and details, oh my!
Play up your living room by adding at least 1 pattern, and 2 textured items in your decor. This is easy to do with different throw cushions, throws, curtains, and area rugs.
3. Size and scale are a BIG deal!
If you live in a cozy little apartment, you need cozy little furniture. Do not overcrowd your space with oversize furniture. It is a design killer! Same rule applies to a large open living room. You need larger furniture to fill up the room. The average sized couch will look off because it will be too small, and it will also rain on your design parade.
4. Follow the rule of 3 when you’re unsure.
When you’re placing accents on your shelves, or on your coffee table, remember that items usually look their best when they are in groups of 3. You want staggered heights, so a tall item, a short item, and an item somewhere in the middle, will work really well together.
Following these 4 important tips will help you transform your living room into the space you’ve always dreamed of!
