Let’s be honest… the living room is a special place in the house. This particular space is typically the first room we show to guests on a house tour and the first spot we sit down after a long day of work. Not only is this space cozy for the community but it is also a space to share your family’s story. Thus, it is important to make sure your living room has pieces that display your preferences, interests, and style. Today, we’ll be sharing with you three ways you can spice up this important room in your home.
There are many benefits to adding plants to your living room. Plants add nice texture and greenery to any space and have health benefits as well. They lighten up dark rooms and make bright rooms feel natural. Don’t have a green thumb? No worries, there are many artificial plants you can purchase to get the same effect with less upkeep. However, if you are into plants, choose a variety of heights and styles that all have similar pots or baskets to display in. This gives a sense of unity while looking at the variety of plants you choose.
Many times the walls in our homes get neglected. When we utilize the wall, not only can it make a room feel bigger, but it also can help with displaying your theme, style, and story. A few of our favorite options are:
Paintings- Are you someone who likes pops of color and texture? Choosing an abstract painting that fits your style is a perfect way to spice up your space.
Canvas Prints- We all have at least a few favorite pictures of our loved ones or furry friends we wouldn’t mind blown up. Shutterfly has various options to fit your size, style, and budget on its website. Check it out here.
Wooden Bookshelves- Small shelves are never a bad option for displaying decorations and special pieces. This particular idea is more versatile as you can change out the items with seasons, preferences, or styles to keep the space feeling new throughout the year.
Throw Blanket and Pillows
Looking for an alternative that is a little less pricey and good for a home that is full of children and craziness? Throw blankets and pillows can be an excellent addition to your space. If your room has bright colors and patterns throughout, choose simple white, gray or black pillows of various shapes and sizes. On the other hand, if your room feels like its lacking life and color, bring in pops of color with your pillows and blankets for a nice touch.
