Living room is the heart of the family, where everything fun, festive, heartful happens. Therefore, its improvement requires a special attention to details.
With the help of carpets you can visually adjust the space. Bright carpets visually expand the room and clear geometric designs on them “eat” the space. If you have the unusual furniture and you want to emphasize this, it is best to choose a one-color rug. A bright picture of the carpet will attract the attention and the furniture will serve as the background.
The white walls and monotonous furniture are an excellent basis for changes that do not require large investments. You can dramatically change the design, replacing only curtains and a carpet. For example, putting a colored carpet and hanging pick up the tone to it draperies you can create a festive atmosphere. Pastel colors will also add comfort and warmth to the interior. And choosing a striped carpet and curtains in the color of one of the stripes, you will add some dynamics to the room.
It is very easy to dilute the dull monotone interior with the artwork on the wall. Not bringing a variety of colors, using only black color, you can create a linear pattern. Playing with the silhouettes of birds or any animals, perhaps even plants, we enliven the interior and give it momentum. It’s hard to look away from a wall.
Natural objects are combined with man-made – artificial ones. Stones and flowers on the one hand, glass and metal holder on the other – as the image of an ideal world order where the person and the fruits of his or her activities are not opposed to nature, harmony, but complement each other.
When the room has bright spots, from the first minute they capture the attention of visitors, hide the shortcomings and flaws of the decor or lay, if any, from prying eyes. These spots can be created all alone, without finishing an art school. Take an old chair and clothe it again (fabric under the velvet or plush will be ideal), and then hang a picture above it. Draw a picture of yourself, the main thing – do not limit your imagination and go to the creative process. The color and pattern and the fabric on the chair should be the same with each other to form a single harmonious composition.
The plant of an unusual shape may also be bright and original element of the decor. With it, you can visually change the concept of the room, for example to push the boundaries. High plant will “lift” the ceiling, and dangling one, on the contrary, will smooth out the high ceilings.
If the room is bright, it has a lot of paintings, ornaments, plants simply give it the comfort. And if the room is very concise, the fancy plants will add some showiness.
Cushions are an important element of the decor. Without them, the living room would look boring. You can buy a pillow in a store or show your imagination and sew them. Pick a color pillows in tone of the curtains, furniture or paintings on the walls. You can play on the contrast.
If the room is in soothing pastel colors, the colorful decorative pillows will set the dominant color and will make a bright accent, making living room more expressive. To add zest to the interior, you do not need large investments. Thus, new covers on pillows can change the atmosphere of the room.
