Pay attention to your living space. Hospitality demands décor and ambience that matches the mood you love. Tone up that vacuum between the four walls with these secrets.
Soften Your Space
Make sure to have a few comfy accessories, like oversized pillows, a soft blanket over the arm of a couch or a sheepskin throw. And don’t forget to spread out and simmer down your lighting as well. Rather than one high voltage ceiling lamp, use a combo of floor, table, ceiling and wall lamps to make the room give off a glow and add to the melodrama.
Beset with Balance
If there is a large group of furniture at one end of the space, create a new seating area at the other end to maintain equilibrium. Balance the room from top to bottom as well, so people’s eyes don’t stop at the sofa. Consider adding a mirror, ceiling pendant lighting, Chinese screens, wall art, tall plants, and high-back chairs to boost the ambience.
Roll Out a Rockin Rug
A great room is off to a head start with an eye-catching rug. If you want a big open area for gatherings and conversation, choose a large sisal that can handle foot traffic. If you want a separate area for dining, place a rug exclusively in that area to create a natural boundary. And if you want people to feel at ease. Choose a plush wool or shag and toss floor pillows down to encourage a casual vibe.
Find a Focal Fixture
Every living room needs an anchor to work off of, whether it’s a fireplace, artwork, a cool light source or a panoramic view. If you don’t already have a natural focal point, create one by showing off your favourite item in the room, like bright throw pillows or DIY wall art. Oh, and if you are going for a conversation space, you might not want the big-screen plasma TV hogging the limelight.
Stabilize Your Sofa
Make sure your couch is facing the door, whether it’s angled in a corner, floating or along a wall. If you’re forced to place it with its back to the entrance, place a console table behind the sofa with lamps or art books so as to make the overall look more inviting.
The Wide Sun-Lit Style
Roomy, airy and free from cramping conditions, the colour white augments the emancipated look of this living space. Creamy and filled with contrasts of red, blue and black at some spots, the hanging lamps light up the night after the orange sun descends across the horizon. The widows, with their shutters opened at noon, bring in the wonderful rays of wellbeing.
An UberChic And Ultra Modern Look
Clean- cut lines that make the room appear sleek and smooth, slow down time as you lounge and enjoy the view in the contemporary answer to the ennui of history. You won’t find this sort of time machine-like design everywhere. In fact, it seems more like the inside of a vanity case. You can’t get more fashionable than that!
That Homely Feeling of Warmth
This is the mainstream-inspired brand of beautiful inner-vision. The smell of baking bread pervades the cozy copy of reality created for those who want to kick off their shoes and relax. Giving off good vibes and existing in the present, comfort is it’s middle name.
Plush, Powerful ‘n’ Passionate
Rose red hints which run the gamut to the prettiest pink, line this living lair. The square shelves are minimalist in design and go well in their dark chocolate against the russet back view. And as for the books and trinkets, they fit into their designated slots like statues in a niche.
