If you have a bit more space to play with, bring the furniture away from the walls to create a cosy sitting area. This works especially well in open-plan living spaces, helping to zone the relaxation area from the thoroughfares or dining, cooking and study areas. If the back of your sofa isn’t much to look at, hide it behind a low console table topped with decorative objects. A good rug can also help to zone a living space, making it feel more intimate. Place the front legs of sofas and chairs on the rug, leaving the back legs off, to give mismatched furniture a more unified feel.
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.
One necessity of any living room is having a place to set things down. End tables and coffee tables are an integral part of living rooms as they create the space to place things and can be a great asset for design aspects. To keep the room from being too cluttered, it is important to have the tables placed in strategic places and to be of the correct size and style. Typically, end tables are placed to the side of a chair or sofa. Coffee tables are usually found in front of the primary seating or between pieces of furniture.
