If whenever you step in your living space you feel like it doesn’t feel like you, it might be time to add a bit of character, so you can enjoy the ambience and a relaxing atmosphere whenever you need a bit of me time. While your living room needs to be functional, it also has to represent your values, your personality, and your style. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank or redesign the entire room. Little changes can make a big difference. Find out how below
1. Feature Wall
A good way of adding character to your personal space is creating a feature wall. Whether you are going for the glitter paint or flowery wallpaper, maybe the rustic style stone, you can add your personal touch. If you have a fireplace, you can use the mantlepiece to display your family photos or your professional certificates. Whatever makes you smile has a place on your feature wall. Get your favourite quote on a stencil sticker and make your space inspiring and relaxing at the same time.
2. Personalized Canvas
In case you haven’t yet found your favourite artist to feature in your living room yet, you might want to get inspiration from the internet. You can get reprint rights to different online images and – for a few dollars – get them printed on a large canvas. Display the pictures on your sidewalls, and over your seating area, so they create an ambient and relaxing atmosphere.
3. Unique Seats
Unless you have no time to sit down, your sofa should be the most comfortable item in your home, after your bed. When you go out shopping, look for the comfort element, style, and the colour schemes, as well. Check out Alexander and James Sofas for inspiration. In case you are happy with how your old sofa looks like, you might want to get new foam or upholstery designed for them, so you can extend their lifespan.
4. Contrasting Color Schemes
The best way to define your living space is by adding one main and one contrasting colour. Some of the most popular color combinations in living rooms this year are dark teal and white, plum and grey, and black and white. This doesn’t mean that you have to choose one of these; make something truly unique that represents your personality.
5. Floating Shelves
To make your room look more spacious and find a place for every memorabilia and decoration you have, you can add some floating shelves, too. They are easy to install and can be used to hold your family photos or your collection of own statues. The best thing about this solution is that you can save a lot of floor space and avoid making your room look too cluttered and crowded.
