Own Your Living Space: Design Like a Pro!

Filling your living room can be a daunting task. Unfortunately, just placing furniture haphazardly no longer cuts it. Without the proper design and accents, your space can seem, unfulfilling. We all know the last thing you want is to purchase new brand name furniture, and it not pop or suit your space. Lack of cohesiveness throughout your home design can create unbalance. Believe it or not, this often starts with not only your furniture, but the home accents that accompany it.

Don’t worry! We’ve gathered some simple tips to make sure your living room space is up to the standards of the new furniture set you so carefully picked out. Because, let’s be honest, comfort is more than just the cushions on your sofa!

A great place to start is by choosing the colors. Color can be an amazing way to spice up your living room (or any other room in your home for that matter). There is a Waite Park furniture store that gave us a great tip! Using an accent chair with your sofa, sectional, or loveseat can bring everything together.

Our friends over at Uniquely Yours Home in Minnesota often do this with their home staging and design! Their residential design portfolio speaks for itself.

Accent chairs are a great way to bring color and life into your space. However, curating a cohesive design doesn’t stop there. Throw blankets can also alleviate the threat of bringing “too much” into the space. We would also recommend throwing some pillows into the mix! Adding throw pillows that correlate to the design elements you’re including can help to really make that color POP.

These coupled with sculptures, vases, trays, rugs, and other home accents can bring your dream home to life!

Just remember, keep it simple! In the world of accenting your home, a little can go a long way.

Another great way to maintain proper home design throughout your living space is to include some texture. That rug that you love, but its woven fabric isn’t quite the same as your sofa. Go for it! Often utilizing slight varying textures throughout can be just what you need to ensure proper home design. As previously mentioned, this can start with your accent chair! If you’re not sure about which accent chairs to start with, get some ideas from this affordable furniture store!

Include some life and light! Bring a nice lamp into the mix or put that new house plant on your cocktail table. To get you started, Country Living has done a great job to provide info on the 25 best indoor plants! Plants can not only do well to bring your home design together, but it can be a great way to build the atmosphere.

Accenting and home design doesn’t just stop with your living room. It can also be brought into your dining room, bedroom, and even home office!

Still not sure where to start? Get some tips from a professional home stager! Browsing their sites can give you insight into current furniture, accents, and occasional styles!

Just remember, sprucing up your living space doesn’t have to be a daunting task. There’s elegance in simplicity, so just keep it simple! Have a gray sofa? Get a patterned accent chair with a color you enjoy and match a throw blanket to it.

Creating your perfect space can really be that easy!
