Measuring your space where you plan to put the couch, first, before you shop, will help you know what will fit there when contemplating your choices. Be sure to allow for plenty of space on either side of the couch in front of it for a coffee table, if you plan to use one, as well as behind the couch if it will used as a walk space. Allow for the arm size of the sofa, too. Some sofas have larger arms than others, so be sure to include the arms, if they extend beyond the base of the couch. Remember, too, too large of a couch in a small room will leave it looking and feeling awkward, and it can quickly consume all of your space, both literally and visually.
Decorating a room starts with choosing your color scheme. Everything you choose for your room after, from furniture, to art, décor pieces and window treatments, are typically all based off of your color choices. For a mid-century living room, keep in mind that the colors were typically a scheme of neutral tones that were accented with darker hues of many different colors; green, yellow, red, purple, dark brown, red, orange, and more.
Overhead lighting tends to pool in one spot, focusing the eye to only a small section of the room but using a few smaller lamps in each corner will draw the eye around making the room seem larger. Try some cool wall sconces to keep the floor space open.
Mid-Century design is here to stay. Once introduced in the 1950’s and 1960’s, it remained a staple in the decorating arena and is most recognized for its crisp, stylish and unique look.
