Homes are not always dramatic and dazzling, but details make a huge difference even in the most compact spaces. Take this townhouse as example: part of a luxurious NYC West Village townhouse, this comfortable furnishings and colors create a parlor room where socialization is key. The fireplace and floor to ceiling French windows leading to a terrace that overlooks the garden are massively charming, but all the details shape a elegant yet snug living room.
No ceiling lights? No problem! You can still create a central light source with an arc floor lamp. The arcs on these types of lamps are generally fairly high, ensuring that no one will bump their heard when walking underneath, but considered placement is still important. Keep in mind that these lamps are quite modern and work best in contemporary settings.
Neutral colors give you the flexibility to change the room without needing to buy a new couch. All you need are new throw pillows and you can make your couch work with virtually any theme. When it comes to the shape, try to strike a balance between interesting and classic so you choose a design that has staying power. We love a good, square sectional sofa or one that invites you to plop down, like the Hamilton Leather Sofa from West Elm. Still not sure which couch is right for you?
