A natural coloured area rug and wooden floor are the perfect base for a brown sectional, and natural greenery provides amazing contrast. Painting one wall in solid fresh white is a good idea so that the overall scheme doesn’t become too muddy.

We can store all kinds of things in here: books, blankets, clothes, important documents, or even our savings. These compartments are usually found under the sofa and are covered by the same fabric and padding that cover the rest of the sofa.

While a number of us at Freshome would love to have a home theater, those of us who are still waiting to make our millions and buy our mansion settle for creating a theater-like space in our dream living room.

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.

An L-shaped sofa in the living room next to a robust wooden coffee table entices guests and family to enjoy each other’s company.
