Living Room / June 22, 2018 / Narcisse.
A gentle palette of warm, mixed neutrals gives you the freedom to play with different accent colours and interesting textures and finishes as your room scheme evolves. A modern, square style sofa can be tucked into a corner or used to zone a seating space in a larger room. A design with a movable footstool section and removable covers gives you flexibility. A style neutral, straight legged sideboard in classic oak will work in other rooms and with various decorating schemes.
Before decorating or furnishing an awkwardly shaped living room consider how best to optimise the space available. Think about an L shaped sofa in a tight eaves space teamed with trunks that can function as coffee tables as well as handy storage. Keep a dark room white to make the most of what little light there is.
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.
Create a tailored, designerly look in your living room with pinstripes, they look just as smart on your walls as they do on suits. Choose soft greys so the scheme does not feel overly masculine, and add a luxe touch with accents of gold in your accessories and soft furnishings. Keep window treatments plain and simple, making the walls the star feature.
