Living rooms take a serious beating and the
decorative elements get stale fairly quickly. Use the following tips to give your living room a fresh new look for not much cost.
FOCUS ON ONE PIECE
Turn one decorative piece or large piece of furniture into the focal point and decorate around it. One high quality piece will carry the room in most cases, be careful not to over decorate
If you have one already, change it - a new entertainment unit for the TV, a different window treatment will create a difference.
GO BOLD & COLOURFUL
If you’ve already got a pretty monochromatic colour scheme, go the other way. Add a few unexpected splashes of colour. Step away from the standard accessories for colour and add a chair or area rug that is full of colour and brings a new sense of energy.
SHOP YOUR HOME
Scour your own home to see if there are any pieces that can be swapped around. You can even take old furniture and find a throw rug to liven it up or, depending on your budget, have it re-upholstered to give it new life.
REARRANGE THE FURNITURE
Just a simple change of your furniture arrangement can really give the room a new look. If you change the traffic flow of the room, you’ll give it a different feel.
LOOK OUTSIDE THE NORM
look for eclectic pieces with a unifying theme, colour, style or just of appeal to you.
