Living Room / April 2, 2018 / Christelle Angelique.
When tackling a big room, a lot of attention is naturally diverted to the main pieces of furniture, but there's another element to consider. While the right sofa is essential (we are coming to this!), choosing to furnish with some tall plants is a simple yet effective way to create some proportion. Let's not forget that some natural greenery adds a much-needed organic feel as well.
Try a monochromatic color scheme in the room. That means using different tints and shades of the same color, and usually adding a neutral such as white. Keeping the eye moving by using variations of the same color makes the room look larger, more open and less cluttered. Add texture to the room to keep it exciting.
Get as much off the floor as possible. Decorative shelving can be installed and outfitted with attractive storage options to keep school projects out of the living room corner, or sewing and craft supplies corralled.
When you shop for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space.
