Sara Castell. Living Room. August 23rd , 2017.
The sofa is the most important piece in a living room, no matter how big or small the space is. It’s the spot where you relax with a cup of coffee, watch a good movie, get some work done, hang out with guests or take a nice weekend nap.
Your living room, regardless of size, should be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertaining. Here are some of our favorite ways to make it feel more spacious.
You’ll also want to pay attention to scale so that your statement pieces don’t overwhelm the space. Play around with different shapes, textures and colors to discover the right proportions. You may be surprised how much you like the look of a bold pop of color or a tall statement piece.
Founded in Montreal, Canada, Customaps is the result of an unusual collaboration between a Parisian mural specialist and a Marseilles-based cartographer. With their combined areas of expertise, Customaps creates unique posters, murals, and pre-stick wallpaper of maps and satellite images, each detail tailored by the buyer down to the zoom-level, style, and font. The possible customizations are almost as endless as the locations.
It’s interesting to try new things. Sometimes traditional ideas about living room decor aren’t the best solution for a small space. Instead of using blinds for window treatments, use long, flowing drapes because they draw attention to vertical space, thus expanding the area of the room.
