If you are in the market to update your living space, particularly your living room now is a great time to start. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season finally behind us, it’s a perfect time to start to start planning updates to your interiors.
You don’t have to plan a huge home interior re-model to achieve an updated look. There are simple and effective ways to update your interiors that can change the whole look and feel of the living area or space that you are working in.
An easy way to change up the look and feel of your living room is to play with lighting options. If your home is filled with grand chandeliers and extremely rich looking lighting fixtures you may want to play with mixing different lighting elements in with what you already have.
You can choose from a variety of styles to give your room an additional light source as well as an additional touch of style or flair. You can select from rustic or antique lighting options, old world European charm inspired lighting design and really anything else that you envision for your space. Aidan Gray is an excellent example of furnishing and lighting options for an array of tastes and styles.
In addition to playing with the lighting in your living space throw in a pop of color on one wall. Doing this gives added dimension and interest to your living space.
It also can bring in all different types of emotion and atmosphere to a room. If you are interested in creating a more calming feel to your space choose soothing color schemes like lavenders, light greys, and cool sages. If you want to add drama to your living space choose deep burgundies, and highly saturated hues. If you want to create an upbeat, cheerful vibe choose pops of bright colors like reds, neon yellows and bright blues.
You will be amazed at how easy it is to change the entire feel of a room just by using specific colors on opposing walls.
Furniture & Wall Art
Adding a few new elements into your living room with regard to furniture and wall décor are two more ways that you can add depth and interest to your living space. If you have the space for additional furniture, consider adding in an antique sideboard or curio cabinet. Utilize options that provide both unique décor quality as well as function.
If adding furniture is not an option for you due to spatial limitations, you can play with wall art and wall décor options. Add a gallery wall of your favorite framed artwork or black and white family photographs. You can also create a gallery wall with antique and vintage mirrors. Mirrors open a room and give the illusion of more space. They also add more natural light to any living area as the light is filtered back into your living space.
Small changes can pack a powerful punch when it comes to updating your interiors quickly, efficiently and without having to designate a ton of time or money for your efforts.
