Living Room / July 1, 2018 / Corentin Hermine.
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.
Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small to midsize artwork. This technique will make the room feel larger than it actually is, because it invites the eye to roam beyond the eye-level horizontal space that may feel confined.
A large living room with a fireplace is a terrific way to combine spacious living with a cozy aesthetic. Getting the ambiance right in a big room can be ever so tricky, but a real fire will naturally bring the functionality of the room back to relaxation and lounging, while also creating a lot of warmth and enjoyment. A stunning hearth and mantle can also be a brilliant alternative to a television as the main focal point.
A big living room is a great opportunity to supersize the pieces of art that are displayed. Not only will big collections create a striking and covetable focal point, they have a natural tendency to also fill large empty spaces that can lead to a stark feel. Sculptures, in particular, divide a room beautifully, but oversized wall art will also help to add in some valuable proportion.
