Living Room Wednesday, July 12th 2017.
A room has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal one. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a manner that draws the eye upward. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a stylish way to accomplish this goal. Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined.
Emphasize a focal point or accent piece in order to take people’s attention away from the size of the room. This can be anything from a feature wall to a mantle, or a bold piece of furniture that creates contrast with the other walls. Another option is to add a contrasting accessory. Look for an object in a style that differs from the rest of your decor. For example, if you primarily rely on traditional pieces, try something avant-garde like some modern art. If you prefer minimalist modern furniture, choose something that’s traditional, such as an antique armoire, as your focal point.
An oversized sectional sofa not only makes a beautiful living room centerpiece, it is also a practical choice that provides comfortable seating for your family and guests. Sectionals are statement sofas that will set the tone for the entire room, so go with minimalist touches for the rest of the room. Choose a white sectional and load it with decorative pillows and throws or choose a dark leather sofa that will give the room a cozy vibe.
