If you find yourself with too many small tables but in need of a coffee table, try clustering your small tables together. You can use a pair of matching tables or group coffee tables of varying heights to create a multi-height coffee table. Try mixing and matching styles, finishes and shapes to create an eclectic look like the one in the living room below.
Try a dark wall color for a bold 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 dark color on the walls, keep the floor finish lighter. The deep blue wall color in this entry highlights the patterned tile floor, making it the focus of the room. Use this technique to show off a beautiful floor or carpet. Add a mirror and other reflective accents to bounce light and to extend the space.
Does your living room have an awkward setback or quirky corner that’s tough to furnish? Turn it into an asset by adding a built-in desk to create a functional and attractive home office space. A built-in desk does not have to be complicated, expensive or even require a contractor to install it. You can make one desk yourself like the one above with a few basic items – a desktop, a few wall shelves and a drawer unit.
