Is your living room one of those boring places that look no one ever lived in it? Or do you feel like no matter how clean and organised it is, it still looks bland and gloomy? This happens because sometimes when we assemble our furniture, curtains and other items, we forget toad the right accessories.
Decorating an interior space does not involve just adding the necessary items. It is also about adding some pieces that can bring in a splash of colour or a sense of vibrancy to it. Take a look at what is below to five types of accessories that you can add to your living space.
There is nothing more suitable than a personal collection that can make a personal statement about your living space. If you have collections such as books, magazines, mugs or plates, why not make a display wall out of this? You can also make a photo wall using your family pictures. If you do not have enough photos to decorate a full wall, then frame them and place them on your mantelpiece or display them on shelves.
Whether you have a vibrant living space with a lot of colours or a minimalist space with just neutral colours, plants are something that suits any home. If you want to add something colourful you can get a flowering plant or two to your living room. But if you want to keep it simple, just get a green plant. Plants are versatile natural accessories that go with any house style or theme.
Instead of having the same old floors, why not have an area rug to make the space look cosy? The texture of a rug also will give you a comfortable feeling when you are walking barefoot too. They also come in various patterns and styles so you are free to choose any type that matches the rest of your décor. For example, if you want patterns and texture get a boho themed or a Persian rug. But if you want a more subtle design, you can get a something with a neutral shade such as a grey rug or even a black rug.
Pillows and Cushions
There is nothing called too many cushions when it comes to comfort. Cushions are a great way to add some extra texture to the overall look of the living room, get some colour in and provide comfort and support to those who use your chairs. They will also come in handy when you want to snuggle in front of the TV with your favourite movie on or want to have some quiet time with a book.
Want to add a romantic and calming atmosphere? Get some candles in your living room. Candles have the ability to make the living room space feel inviting and intimate. Candles, like rugs, also come in different shapes and designs. So,you can choose how you want to display them; whether you want long, classic taper candles on a candelabra or pillar candles to be used on a tray. It is an added advantage if you can get some scented candles so they can diffuse the aroma to add to the cosy and calming vibe.
The living room is not just another space to add the basic furniture and be done with. It is also the place where you entertain your guests and spend time with your loved ones. So,make it not just functional but also comfortable and stylish.
