10 Things Every Living room Needs

The living room is where you entertain, relax, read, maybe watch TV but it is the most 'public' space in your home and sure, you can count on the sofa, the coffee table, and a few additional seating options. But the room needs to be personalized through decorative touches. Here's some inspiration on how to add those personal style items to your space to give it a polished look

1 - A place for your books -  Your collection of first editions aside, designate an area to feature a few choice titles that complement your style. If your space is small, try blending the book case colour with the wall colour - it will look luxurious (like built-ins) and it will look streamlined

2 - Window treatments -  An empty window space is an incomplete one. Dress the frames with a set of drapes to maximize the height of the room, providing it with a simple yet elegant finish. Drapes also add softness to a room and they frame a window beautifully.  If you have blinds already add the drapes they really add a touch of style

 Sister’s Living Room Before & After (NOTE: "The window treatments are probably my favorite update to the space. I wanted to make them lush, but still feel casual. We achieved the “lush effect” by using lots of layers. Each window has a double rod that carries a sheer and a heavyweight cotton panel, plus a bamboo roller shade on each side. The casualness comes in with the types of materials we chose—the simple bamboo and the woven white cotton.")

3 - A styled coffee table -  A well-curated table keeps essentials on hand - minus the clutter. Stick to things that make like favorite books, vases, or trays. No, the remote control does not count as an essential or an accessory.

4 -  Something on the walls - We're all about the walls. Gallery of frames. One eye-catching print. An over sized mirror. Choose to decorate with pieces that will make the space totally your style.

5 - Pop(s) of colour -  Offset a neutral palette with hints of an eye-catching hue. It's the key to an instant uplift. Accent pillows, art, accessories and even an area rug are easy ways to add some colour to your space.

6 - Painted walls -  A can of paint really is the easiest way to add personality to a room. As for the color, well, that's up to you.

8 - Personal touches - Dedicate some shelf space for an edited assortment of pieces that reflect your personality. Throw some favorite framed photos to the mix as well.

9 - Light fixtures -  A little lighting goes a long way. If you don't have a ton of natural light, then bring in table lamps to set the right mood for your space.

 Open Floor Plan    Interact with family and guests while putting the finishing touches on your meal. With an open floor plan there’s room for everyone to sit comfortably around the kitchen and in the surrounding living spaces.

10 - The right seating arrangement - Small space. Large space. We can't stress this enough. It's important to think about the shape of your room and its function. Arrange for how you will be using this area.
