Work Your Weird Angles. Wondering if your living room furniture is working for you? Are you making the most of the space available to you? Is your current living room furniture arrangement making the room feel cramped or crowded? First you will want to consider the layout of the room, its function and how you prioritise the different elements of the room. Think about foot traffic when arranging furniture, as you don't want to be creating too many obstacles that disrupt the flow of the room. People don't want to be navigating a maze to sit on the sofa from the entrance of the living room. An awkwardly shaped living room can be baffling to decorate. Here's what to mull over if you're working with an odd space. You can turn a weird wall into a focal point. The owner of this apartment turned the vertical space around her bedroom door into a salon styled gallery wall. Not sure where to put the sofa? A bold pattern can establish a center point in an oddly shaped area. Here peonies wallpaper anchors the living room.
Embrace Your White Walls. Can't paint your white walls? Consider embracing a white-on-white interior. Pairing your walls with equally pale furniture is an elegant and straightforward way to make any small space feel brighter and larger. For character add pops of colors and splashes of texture. Interior designer, Mercedes Daczi personalized this white living room with a range of colorful and textural accents including houseplants and wicker furnishings. If your walls are white and you enjoy neutral tones, you can always take a soothing approach… Layering neutrals in a space with white walls can play up the clean, refreshing look we talked about in the intro. White is arguably the most versatile of paint colors, especially when it comes to that which surrounds us—walls. Would you agree? Although I love a pop of bold color (or a dramatic dark, or a well-considered neutral...), even I have to agree that white can be seen as one-size-fits-all, serving as a backdrop for spaces overflowing with interest and personality. It seems that no matter the style, from classic and cozy to clean and contemporary, white just works.
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.
