7 easy tips for decorating your living room

Your living room is one place that gets the most attention when it comes to design and décor because your home life revolves around it.

This room allows your guests to get a glimpse of your lifestyle without venturing further into your house. And fortunately, you don’t have to spend a fortune to jazz it up. Get tips…

1. Display prized possessions

Now, who doesn’t like a good collection? However silly it may seem to others, it sure is treasured as it could hold sentimental value or shows another quirky side of you.

It’s time to bring out those prized possessions for the display they truly deserve.

Collection articles can divulge a lot about your persona and it’s an easy way to personalise your living room without spending tons of money to customise your home.

2. Highlight with a rug

Rugs are one of the easiest means to bring about an almost instant charm to your space.

A stylish rug is an ideal choice to embellish your floor, and with so many options to choose from, you can select a rug that enhances the room setting.

3. Set up a cosy nook

Break the symmetry of standard living rooms by introducing an unexpected cosy nook in a corner.

‘Give this space much ado’  so it stands out from the rest of the living room and guests are intrigued by the set up. Add on to the warmth with throw pillows, blankets and floor rugs to the space.

4. Mirror deals it right

It’s true that mirrors can create the illusion of light and space while adding a classy look to your living room.

What could better complement an accent wall than a mirror cluster containing various shapes of mirrors?

Use mirrors in such a way that they reflect natural light or picturesque beauty points like a chandelier in your living room.

5. Fool around with odds and evens

Throw pillows are a convenient means to add glamour to your furniture. You can also use pillows that are large enough to showcase the patterns in the fabric for a cleaner design.

Did you know? Odd numbers are great for a modern look whereas even numbers best complement a traditional look.

6. Use the window to your advantage

Create a comfy conversation area by setting up furniture around a large window to take advantage of the natural light and scenic views.

Creating a cosy nook will look all the more spectacular even without a sofa. You can set up a cluster of four chairs paired with an ottoman or a coffee table near a large window to bring about a remarkable change in your living room.

7. Let it billow on colours

Functional and gorgeous, the right window treatment can enhance an already-stunning view.

Bring about a fresh summer look with sheer curtains that bluster over colourful furniture and accessories.

Transparent curtains are the simplest and cheapest additions you can add to your interiors.

A flood of natural light over colourful furniture sure creates a pleasant sight.
