Fun with color. Megan at Homemade Ginger used pretty teal for a surprising pop of color on this room’s built-in shelves (plus, the hue matches the rug). Think citrus, warm-weather devotees, take notice: Pops of lemon and lime will make your space feel summery year-round.
Decorate in layers. Beautifully designed living rooms place noteworthy objects at every level. Mentally divide your space into low, mid, and high areas, and position elements to encourage the eye to travel up, down, and around. Here, a faux animal skin covering a woven area rug provides underfoot allure while a prettily accessorized tray atop a trunk and perky pillows add color at the midground. Use vivid canvases, striking sconce shades, and sculptural standing lamps to keep interest running high.
Re-purposed bar cart. Setting up a booze station on your bar cart is a no brainer — but using it as an end table (especially when space is limited) to display blooms, art and coffee table books is just genius. Low furniture. short pieces like this tufted couch, keep an open floor plan cozy. Use area rugs to define individual "rooms" within the space.
