Interior design tastes vary over time but there are some classic themes and design you can follow that will really make a difference.
Being elegant is a choice- it is very easy to go overboard with the decorations but minimalism is often the key while dealing with interior design. Change small, make the impact bigger is what we offer you in this blog. Simple things like, changing the colour of a lampshade or the sofa can dramatically alter the look of your living room. Here are 10 ways you can make your living room look elegant:
‘Metal’ for Life:
Using metal furniture can create an elegant look for your room. Metallic designs are sophisticated by default. Aluminium, copper and iron have different maintenance requirements but it is entirely up to you on how you want your home to look.
Colour play a significant role in the way your room will be perceived. Use blue in your furnishings and other décor to create an atmosphere of tranquillity and elegance.
Bring nature to the home and floral fabrics
Floral prints and nature based designs are trendy right now. You can find ornamental plants to complement floral designs in your furnishings.
‘Locally sourced’ is another buzzword that we hear a lot nowadays. Get rid of mass produced décor and support local artisans. The sky is the limit with artisanal items.
Use Mirrors strategically
Mirrors can greatly enhance the look of a room. You can purchase vintage mirrors to make your living room look more spacious and elegant.
Make Ample Use of Lights
A well-lit room is a pleasure to live in. Create different lighting setups to change the look of your room. Industrial lights strategically placed can create amazing lighting effects.
It’s time for a vintage timepiece
A vintage timepiece like a grandfather clock can instantly make your living room look elegant. Harken back to more sophisticated times with a well-designed, antique wall clock.
Memorialise your best moments with vintage photo frames
A collection of vintage photo frames with photos of friends and family is a great way to add character to your living room.
Use your living room for storage
Don’t let the extra space in your living room go to waste. Get antique shelves and use them to store all the things you love.
Celebrate your love for books with an antique bookend
This is a must have for all book lovers who want to give their rooms an elegant touch. Antique bookends are a strong statement of the owner’s good taste and sophistication.
