Take These Interior Design Tips and Turn Your Dream Into a Reality
You don’t have to be an interior design pro to create a beautiful polished living space and still stay within your budget. Tackle your living room with these inspirational ideas and you will have a beautiful space in no time.
Almost every living room has a loveseat sofa, so when you want your space to look like a pro designed it, make sure this ‘star’ piece of furniture has a distinctive style and color. Look for special trims, like decorative nail heads, curved arms and tufted backs. Coordinating fabrics also add interest and run far from the everyday sofa choice.
Go for the Unexpected
Is it a coffee table or a repurposed door? Guests will be intrigued when they realize that your coffee table was a lovely door in another life. This kind of twist makes for an unexpected approach to décor that is a hallmark of many interior designers. Take this same approach to side tables, too.
Throw It In
Designers use throw pillows like a baker uses icing on a cake. It adds the personality to your finished look. Toss decorative pillows that show off the mood and style you are trying to achieve. The best part – these are often the least expensive thing on your decorating list!
Sheer curtain panels are ideal for living rooms, where the idea is less about coverage and more about design and managing light. Sheer living room curtains that feature a delicate pattern do both, looking attractive and framing your window beautifully.
Find Your Footing
Define your conversation area with the help of a large area rug in an interesting pattern that features some of the key colors in your room’s palette. Let it anchor the room right under your coffee table.
The tall and versatile nature of a floor lamp can bring light to any corner of your room and doesn’t rely on your table real estate to get the job done. Choose one with a curved or carved pole to bring a stylish visual punctuation to your space.
Home Sweet Home
Make your personal mark with a piece of wall art that says it best. Wise words, inspirational quotes and mood setting expressions are all ways to say it exactly how you want.
