You’ve got great taste, but every once in a while even those with a good sense of design can stand to shake things up a bit. Consider these two ways to liven-up your living room if it has fallen into a bit of a rut.
Paying Attention to Details
You’ve picked just the right furniture for your living room. You’ve created a look that’s isn’t matchy-matchy, but has the feeling that each piece was curated and accumulated over time. You’ve set up a gathering space around the fireplace, and created a cozy conversation area over by the picture window.
It looks picture perfect—almost staged, and that can make a room come across as stiff, static, unusable, and…a little boring.
Not to worry. It won’t take a whole lot to liven things up.
If you tend to decorate in a very spare manner consider adding in some small accessories—perhaps a few tasteful tabletop items and expressive pieces of art to help warm up and personalize your space. A cozy throw over the arm of a sofa or chair can help soften a living space that’s full of hard lines and angles. The addition of a few plants can be just the right amount of greenery to add some life to your living room.
Neutral color palettes can create calm and inviting spaces, and if you decide to sell your home a neutral base of walls, ceilings, and floors are virtual blank slates that make it easier for a future buyer to move in. But, to keep things interesting, don’t be afraid to add a little color to your space.
Consider introducing subtle punches of pigment through accessories, art, accent pillows, and linens. If you’re up for it don’t be afraid to create an accent wall—just choose an understated hue that complements the neutral nature of your living room.
