What’s more expansive than the great outdoors? A few good indoor plants add liveliness to a room and can give a space a breath of fresh air. Add other outside elements like a hammock couch or rattan chair for even more of that open air feel!
Designing a small space can be tricky, especially if you have a living room so tiny your legs practically hit the wall when you’re lounging around. These little hacks will give your living room the illusion of spaciousness while maintaining functionality so you can do everything from throwing a chic cocktail party to cozying up on the couch with your real best friend.
Lighting is a key factor in any room but even more important in a small room. The key to lighting is to layer it in the room, from floor to ceiling. The use of multiple types of lighting helps darken all areas of a room, which can close in a space and make it feel small. Multi-layering lighting entails the use of the natural light you have in your room paired with floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lights, sconces on the walls and even artwork lights. All types of lighting work together to brighten dark corners and light up spaces that feel closed in by darkness. Evening time is one of the most obvious times of day where a room can lose its sense of size and can be rectified with a generous amount of artificial lighting.
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.
