One of the goals for each of my clients is to create a space that is both purposeful and delightful to be in, not only for them, but for their guests as well. What better way to do this than to hone in on the stylistic choices made in your very own living space.
Our living space is one that we tend to spend a lot of time in, but it also acts as a primary space for us to entertain guests. What’s lovely about sprucing up your living space is that it doesn’t take too much heavy lifting—rather, it is about incorporating simple adjustments that can make the biggest difference. Whether you are seeking new ideas for living space decor or are seeking some new inspiration, below are 4 decor ideas that can liven up your living space.
Wall art is the epitome of a simple interior stylistic choice that can impact the ambience of any room. Depending on your selection of wall art, it can serve as a source of more color, harmony and life to your living space.
Wall art also makes a solution if you are looking to alleviate ‘dead space’ in your room, in other words, the empty spaces or gaps that could use some filling in. This goes for living rooms that are neutral in color, may give off a feeling of emptiness, or the need for there to be more ‘togetherness’ through a color scheme. From prints and paintings to framed photographs, the options are endless, and allow you to reflect a bit of your personality to those you welcome in.
A decorative mirror is a great way to add a touch of sophistication and interest to your living room area. They come in unique shapes, sizes, and designs that are able to reflect your style and align with the other decorative elements in the room. No need for mirrors that are too large in size—smaller wall mirrors are sometimes all you need to help fill in empty space, while bringing that sense of order your living space craves. Mirrors can also create the illusion of a larger room if your space is on the smaller side.
Bold Accent Chairs
Not all living spaces call for accent chairs, but for those that do, they make a beautiful touch to align with your aesthetic. Between different colors, textures, and styles, an addition of accent chairs will instantly add that “inviting” element to your living space and provide more seating. Sometimes it may be difficult to determine ways to complement the other existing design elements in your living space. This is a wonderful way to do so and also a perfect opportunity to play around with bold color.
Round Wooden Coffee Table
A classic coffee table is one of those pieces that never fails to tie a living space together. But what’s so wonderful about the options to choose from today is that there are plenty that have the ability to add that final touch. If you’re looking to bring a more rustic feel to your living room space, a round wooden coffee table does the trick. Different shades of wood allow for more options that further align with your design preference and make it easier to complement your existing furniture.
We’re all familiar with some of the basic elements that make up a living room. Sometimes it’s as simple as taking those elements and getting a bit creative with styles, textures, colors, and size that can make your living space look complete.
