Design Twins Secrets To Styling Your Living Room!
We all love the idea of a renovated, brand new look, complete overhaul style living room! Making the decision to create some changes is EASY. It’s the decisions that come after which start to overwhelm us. LIKE, where to start?!?!?! Start BIG. As in, key pieces first! Sofa. Coffee Table. Rug! Don’t let the enormity of the transform overwhelm you. Once you’ve made decisions on the key pieces, you’ll find the accents and décor will naturally flow.
There are certain questions we can ask ourselves which will help us to clearly make the big choices and end up with the living room of our dreams!
Firstly, do you have a particular style? Modern? Minimalist? Scandi? Boho? A combination works fine too! It’s all about honing in to what kind of vibe makes YOU scream with joy inside. Spend a few nights on your phone flicking through Instagram or Pinterest, taking screenshots of rooms you like. Um, “welcome to my every night” you say.
Secondly, do you already own some pieces that can be better featured with the addition of just one or two items? A busy living room can be combatted with a neutral rug. Or perhaps a new couch in a lighter colour could make a huge difference to the harmony of your space!
Lastly, this one is super important – what kind of home do you live in?! Is it small or large? Well lit or dim? DO YOU HAVE KIDS? (Sayonara white couch). What function does your living room most often provide? A place to watch T.V? A place of serenity and calm? A place to entertain?
The Elle Cube Coffee Table by GlobeWest ticks a lot of different styling preferences! The beautiful brass adds boho glory while the glass top and sleek design brings a modern feel!
Pair with the Felix Block 4 Seater Sofa to indulge in complete sophisticated luxury.
