Accessories Can Redefine Your Home
Creating an elegant yet cosy atmosphere while designing your home goes beyond just choosing the right colours for your walls and placing the furniture ergonomically.
Let’s start with the idea ‘less is more’. Too much variation of furniture is one of the biggest no-no while trying to achieve a sophisticated look.
Here are some tips to create minimalist decorating style where living becomes neat, organized and clutter-free:
Introduce some rugs
Adding a rug is an excellent idea to highlight a specific sitting area and it also adds a sense of depth and warmth. Be sure to get the right size of rug and leave off the edges to create an appearance of a larger sized room.
If you choose to place it below the coffee table, put the front legs of your couch or armchair so the edges blend under the furniture and also creates a frame for a cleaner and more aesthetic appearance.
Creating a focal point
By creating a focal point, you are drawing attention to a specific object, which could be a show-piece placed on the centre table, a big statement chandelier, a fireplace, or even a dramatic red brick wall.
This object being the focal point will be the first thing that your eyes would land on when you enter the room. Typically, a focal point faces the main entrance for your living room.
If the room looks dull and bland, you can make add some personality to perk up the space.
If you want to do something without making a hole in your pocket, you can choose to create a collage by placing a mix of framed pictures, abstract designs, quotes, hand-made artworks. You can also create a retro look by placing different shaped mirrors.
Changing the colour of the lights to more warm hues rather than whites can also significantly enhance the entire look and feel
Change door knobs and drawer knobs
