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.
Dark accent, look to the opposite end of the color spectrum to tie everything together. A moody blue grounds a windowed living room by Sarah Richardson without overwhelming it. Sneaky furniture, steal a space-faking secret from this tiny Brooklyn apartment. Choose a few full-size furniture pieces instead of cramming in lots of smaller ones. The living room will feel larger, and you´ll have a sofa you actually like to sit on.
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.
