Living Room / June 23, 2018 / .
When it comes to small living rooms, hard working, multi functional pieces of furniture are your friends. Take this coffee table, which doubles as a storage bin, allowing you to clear away any clutter at a moments notice. You could also invest in lidded stools, or even a sofa with storage under the seat.
Mint is the perfect colour to give your living space a cool, refreshing vibe. Create an informal, effortless feel by mixing it with relaxed denim blue and slate grey, then bring the whole palette to life with pops of crisp white, chartreuse and zesty lime. Make it mellower in winter by switching in accents of navy blue and soft purple.
The first thing you should never do if you have a small living room is cram in too much furniture. Instead, choose a sofa that is proportional to the size of the space, and if you are still in need of more seating, use stools. They will take up far less room than bulky armchairs, and can be easily manoeuvred.
Pick a wallpaper featuring different shades of the same colour to create a subtle but striking feature wall rather than overwhelming the space. Opting for a simple design instead of a hectic pattern will also help to soothe the scheme. To break up a papered wall, place your furniture and artwork in strategic positions around the edge of the room.
