If you have no free walls and a centered fireplace, float seating in the center of a room filled with doors and windows. Face chairs and sofa toward each other to encourage conversation. Anchor the conversation grouping with a rug and large coffee table. Frame the space with additional seating and cabinets for storage, positioned around the perimeter of the room along the walls. Arranging furniture around a fireplace, especially in the winter, makes your living room feel inviting and cozy.
When creating your own rustic look, you have so many options to choose from. You can dress it up with antique chandeliers and romantic candles, or keep it simple with burlap accents and upcycled farm materials. If you balance your space just right, you may even be able to alternate between these two options simply by adding or removing a few accessories as the seasons change. However you approach your new rustic décor, remember to keep in mind how you want to feel in your new space. Also consider if you will be primarily hosting in this space, or if it will be a personal escape from the everyday.
Online shopping is the new normal. And while getting paper towels and your multivitamins on repeat order is a no-brainer, there are some areas of the home that most people find a little intimidating. Furniture can be a fairly large purchase for a home, and shopping sight-unseen can be, in a word, daunting. While the showroom experience appeals to many, unless you live in design meccas like New York or Los Angeles, you may have to head to the web to get the best options, brands and designs. And like buying anything online, taking your time and getting the details right can make the difference between a deal and a disaster.
