Make a home out of your house.
If quarantine has tough us something is that our homes are our safe spaces, and we need to take care of them daily. No matter how big/small a room is you can always make it more comfortable, brighter or more in style with some quick touches.
Based on some tip we found on publications like Architectural Digest & Mr Porter, here there are the definitive guide for creating a new chill/luxury zone in your living room.
Find a Balance of Old and New
Mix vintage finds with modern accents to bring your space to life. If you have a spare chandelier just hanging around…even better.
Add a Centerpiece
Whether you go for a romantic chandelier or a modern pendant, a striking light fixture can complete a living room. Use the piece to brighten the seating area and create a focal point. Install a dimmer switch to be able to switch up the atmosphere and set the mood.
Green point: buy a fishtail Palm (Caryota)
Featuring lush, jagged-edge leaves, this bushy palm varietal will transport any room to the tropics. The Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia) is also a great and valid option.
Add a Pop of Color
If your space is lacking a certain something, add a colorful lamp for an eclectic vibe.
Sort out your bookshelves
Not colour coordinated (yuck) but classified in four categories: ones you’ve read, ones you haven’t read, ones you didn’t like (get rid) and ones you’d like to read again.
Focus on the Mix
A successful lighting design combines a number of light sources at different levels of the room. Add layers of light from a number of types of fixtures that can be used together or separately for a flexible space.
Pay attention to the walls
It is always a good idea to support small artist by buying some art or to frame some print/posters from your favorite movies or books.
