The living room above is a great example of how to maximize a small living space. A room of this size has the tendency to seem cramped, but the large windows, light colored walls and ample use of mirrors not only reflect the natural light pouring in from the doors and the windows but the use of mirrors also gives the optical illusion of space, making the room seem larger than it actually is. Conversely, darker colors will make a room feel smaller. Even with the abundance of natural light and the strategic placement of the mirrors, this room in a darker shade would have a more boxed-in feel to it.
One of the fastest growing home trends for 2019, the botanical look is all about bringing the outdoors in. To incorporate this style into your living room décor, choose a colour palette that includes refreshing and serene colours from the natural world and accent with revitalising shades of green throughout. Furnish with pieces that use natural materials and finish off with some in-season flowers and houseplants. The truly brave may even want to have a stab at creating their own Living Wall (i.e. an interior structure comprising vertical panels of plants). Not only is the use of greenery on-trend, but it also has many health benefits including stress reduction and air purification.
Try a dark wall color for bold living room update. Dark walls create an intimate and inviting feeling in a room. They are great for living rooms, libraries, dining rooms and bedrooms. When you use a dark color on the walls, keep the floor and ceiling finishes lighter. The deep blue wall color in this living room highlights the coffee table, making it the focus of the room. Use this technique to show off a special table or beautiful display of objects.
