You will more than likely spend most of your time in your living
room, so you want to feel comfortable and be able to relax the
moment you enter. When shopping for living room furniture, select
your sofa by comfort rather than style. There is nothing worse than
coming home to relax and sinking into a hard uncomfortable sofa. Let
style dictate with other pieces in your living room, such as
buffets, side tables, coffee tables and entertainment units.
Your living room is the heart of your house, you express yourself in a sophisticated editing of your surroundings. Most important to you is the drama that you can achieve by eliminating clutter, you can lead the eye to the main event, whether that be a dramatically-lit sculpture.
Your carefully-planned look can be ruined by a messy stack of unread mail. Look critically at where you'll need storage and think creatively. Do you always drop the mail on the coffee table after you walk in the door? Perhaps you need a sleek console table in the entryway with a large ebony box to stash the mail in before you mess up the living room.
sDon't detract from what's most important If you have a dynamite view, maybe you don't want to spoil it with any window treatment. If you have a gorgeous piece of art, spend a little on a contemporary light to add drama and give the art breathing room on the wall.
