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.
Second surface, shange up tired decor with this quick DIY. Add old wood planks to a coffee table as a bonus shelf. And skip painting — the weathered finish has more character. Easy access, an open floor plan like in this Connecticut cottage creates one large space for entertaining. Two columns (garage-sale finds from years ago) stand at the corners of the kitchen, anchoring the room.
Preppy palette, hints of gold make buttoned-up pink and navy shades look a bit more glamorous. Embrace Americana, skip the primary versions of red and blue, and choose navy and burgundy for a nod toward patriotism that doesn’t overwhelm your space. Chic blend, this blogger proves that mixing patterns and textures can be a smashing success when you stick to a simple color palette.
