When you bring new furniture into your home, you don’t have to stay with the same style as your existing decor. That said, there are styles that are easier to incorporate. Look for furniture that has simple and clean lines, like contemporary and mid-century modern pieces. Adding these styles can also give your space a trendy update without a big price tag.
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.
Some may see a blank corridor, but we see a gallery just waiting to happen. Hanging family portraits, photos, and artwork is a simple solution to give your pathway a personal touch. Choosing coordinating frames in a single color, like we see in this long hallway from Style at Home, creates a cohesive look.
