Viewing Area: The eternal question: What to do with the TV? If space allows, try placing your television in a corner so the flow of the room is uninterrupted (but where you can still enjoy Downton Abbey comfortably from the sofa). Bursts of Cheer: Maxi floral prints and super-sized stripes are whimsical touches that give this living room an affable appearance. Warm and Inviting: Nothing says, “curl up and stay awhile” like an extra-deep, sink into me sofa and a plush ottoman to rest your feet. Load on Layers: Stimulate the senses with plenty of textures, including a scratchy jute rug underfoot, a tweedy wallpaper, and a luxurious cashmere throw on the sofa. Polished Pairs: Ah, the power of two: A pair of identical console tables flank the fireplace and two different, but similarly colored, sofas face each other for a pulled together look. Natural Elements: A mix of polished and unfinished wood pieces, and a neutral shade on the wall, can make a room feel chic and not campy. Feeling the Blues: A palette of navy blues makes this room feel instantly inviting and cozy. It’s a durable color for big pieces of furniture, like this plush sectional, since it masks everyday dirt. Small-Space Solution: The trick to turning a small-space into an elegant living area is to use appropriately sized furniture. A sectional sofa might seem too big for a petite area but in fact it’s the perfect size and helps define the space. (Using small furniture in a tight space only exacerbates a compact feeling.)
White on White: You can’t go wrong with an all white space. To prevent it from feeling like a hospital room, introduce different textures. A crocheted throw, a rough hewn linen sofa, and a nubby rug all add depth to a monochromatic look. Reading Nook: Carve out a quiet moment in your living room to entice a little reading time. Drag a cozy chair over to a window or next to a bookshelf and be sure to provide ample light for late night page turning. Updated Prep: Give tradition a twist and try a living room filled with old standby silhouettes a Chesterfield sofa, bamboo side chairs in super saturated colors (ocean blue and lime green). Game Changing: An extra large coffee table with a feminine shape is the modern take on the traditional game table. Invite friends over for game night; the edge on the table will keep board pieces (and drinks) from sliding onto the floor. Touch of Trend: Update your living room as you would your wardrobe with a few new accessories each season. This neutral room is an easy canvas for a few pops of color and pattern an aubergine throw, a zebra pillow, and a metallic side table.
Lighting: Because most of your day’s (and night’s) preparation takes place in the bathroom, it is perhaps most essential that you light this space in your house right. Too much, too little, or otherwise improper lighting around the vanity could result in garish grooming, so you don’t want to skimp on your lighting budget. While it may be wise to install dimmable recessed lighting around the rest of the room, such lights are dangerous around the vanity, where they can cast deceiving shadows on the face. Instead, vertical fixtures or sconces mounted on either side of the mirror will provide even light. These task lights should total 150 watts, providing sufficient brightness that won’t wash out the face’s features.
Bring On The Butterflies. If you are a less active person, you may see yourself drinking a refreshing beverage in the morning while you watch the butterflies dance around your garden. The best thing you can do to attract these beauties of nature is to plant flowers that are rich in nectar. You will then have double effectiveness, the soothing view of your gorgeous flower garden, and the ubiquitous presence of these curious little butterflies flying around your yard. Dress Your Deck. If you have a deck in your backyard, you have the advantage of various floor levels; this means you can easily design different zones for each of your favourite activities. For example, a dining area can be created with pergolas and vines to render a more secluded and private place for you and your guests to have a meal or share some drinks in. By making every space have its own function, you can enjoy the practicality of an organized backyard getaway.
Sea of Space: Make your living room a welcome respite for a gang of friends with ample seating and a circular coffee table that’s easy to navigate. Easy Elegance: Keep a formal living room from getting too fussy by mixing dramatic accents like these floor to ceiling drapes with everyday classics, like a pair of neutral slipper chairs. Ladylike Charm: Soft, muted colors and sinuous curtains infuse a living room with a little feminine grace. Extended Seating: The right furniture layout, with a quirky accessory added here and there, can broaden a living room to accommodate large groups and big parties. Mix It Up: Throw caution to the wind and mix in a bunch of different patterns for a lively look. Pick complimentary colors to guide you when shopping.
Countertop: Usually, home remodelers devote weeks of deliberation to their kitchen countertops only to flippantly choose the material that makes up their bathroom vanities. However, vanity countertops are just as integral to the room’s design – if not more so, considering the smaller space. By hiring a reliable cabinetmaker, you can select from a bevy of countertop materials, including: granite, marble, quartzite, laminate, tile, wood, concrete. Of course, some countertop materials will be easier to maintain than others in the humid bathroom environment. For example, wood counters, unless immaculately sealed, will soak up steam like a sponge and rot. Tile, though amply customizable, may be difficult to clean with the small, rough grout lines. Generally, the safest and easiest choices are granite and marble, which create a sophisticated, stunning look and little hassle.

Therefore, dining room should be comfortable, and you must not neglect or ignore this part of the home.

An ideal place for a work table is by the window, where there is a lot of light.

It’s that treasured (and often off-limits) space that sets the tone for your entire decorating style. Seeing Red: The secret to taming a fiery red? Balance it with pops of white. A smattering of dove white wall accents with the white fireplace, chair rail, and coffee table keep the bold color in check. Pattern Play: Trellis, ikats, florals oh my! The trick to mixing patterns is to pick a color theme here, reds, browns, and blues and to use big swaths of solid color (the brown sofa, red chairs, and green ottoman) to anchor the space. Light and Airy: You can pack a lot into your living room even a dining set if you keep furnishings from weighing the space down.
