Choosing Colour to wall
A lot can be done if you need a colour theme for your living room. Sofas, rugs, decorative showpieces, birdcages, and many more décor items can be played with when it comes to colours. Again, you want not to spend a lot on looking for colourful pieces. You can take a look at flea-markets to pick interesting pieces. You can have shades of the equivalent colour to give a unique feel to the room
Accessorize of your Home with Comfort & Elegance
Contrast textures add an exciting element to your living room. They save the space from appearing boring. You can do this without spending a fortune. Just place your favorite items at interesting angles. Like, if you are having an old, wooden side table, you can put it next to your contemporary sofa set; or have pillows with embroidered covers placed on chairs or plain-coloured sofas. You can even paint lampshades yourself. This will make up for the lack of colours. While adding an interesting personal touch. Make sure you left ample, yet not too much, space between furniture to withdraw clutter.
Mix up your textures
Using the same one or two textures throughout your living place is a sure-fire way to make a space look flat and dull. Instead, mix a variety of textures in your upholstery, decorative pillows, throws, and drapery for a more dynamic, elevated look. Use pillows of different sizes for a wider dimensional look.
Add Molding to Wall
Decorative molding is one of the cheapest ways to give your room a high-end look without spending big bucks. And with a little time and DIY know-how, you can do it yourself in a weekend. However, even if you decide to hire a professional, it’s still relatively low-cost and well worth the investment. For the most sophisticated and elegant look, paint the molding the same colour as the walls
. Decorate the corners
Colouring the corners of your living room is the best way to make it look stunning instantly. A colourfully decorated lampshade, an old clay pot that you made in a hobby class, a statuette that your friend gifted, an old corner table from your grandmother’s house, and many such things can go in the corners to uplift the observation of an otherwise simple living room.
