Side Tables - Side tables tend to be an afterthought but they're actually very important. The number you need will depend on how much seating you have. Everyone should be able to comfortably set down a drink without having to get up and walk over to a table. Try to have one on either side of the sofa (unless there isn't enough space – in this case people can use the coffee table), and between pairs of chairs. The key is to have enough surface space without overcrowding the room. The tables should be approximately the same height as the arm of the chair or sofa they're next to. From family game nights to book club gatherings, the living room is a social hub. The proper placement of the room's furniture goes a long way toward making the space feel welcoming.
Keep it sweet, opt for impact with a sugary shade – decorating with pastels needn't mean going entirely pale. Paint an accent wall in a darker colour, which will serve to balance the lighter tone on an adjacent wall. Use matt emulsion to create a fashionable low-sheen look – a velvety, almost chalky finish – ideal for uneven walls in the living area. Make it multi-coloured, a family space is the perfect place to go big on colour. Choose a low-slung modular sofa in a mix of pretty colours for flexible seating that will bring a sense of fun to a family room. Paint walls white to create a backdrop that makes the colours really pop. Keep other furniture minimal so the sofa takes pride of place. Stick to blue, create a fabulously fresh space with blue. Marry steely blues, from mineral to aqua shades, to devise a scheme you won't want to leave. Mimic a dado or picture rail in paint – and take it all around the room for added impact. Keep the feel classic with white or natural wood furniture or create a more exotic look by adding texture and pattern for that year-round holiday feel.
If you have an odd shaped room with irregular angles or alcoves, you can use these unique features to your advantage by highlighting them with interesting furniture or decor. A bookcase or some shelves can fit nicely into an alcove to display your books or other knick knacks attractively whilst making the most out of the space. Sharp angled corners can be visually softened to appear less harsh looking with the help of something circular or spherical, like a circular coffee table or a spherical sculpture of some sort. If you have a tight corner, try to de-clutter the layout to make the corner less heavy on the eyes. Aim to minimise the clutter in certain spaces, and add clutter in others. Much like using contouring cosmetics to sculpt someone's face in order to highlight their best facial features and distract from their less flattering, you want to be thinking about your living room in the same way.
