INTERIOR STYLING TIPS
1 Instead of the usual sofa, opt for four comfy chairs around a circular table. The setting will feel more intimate and inviting.
2 Use a chandelier in an unexpected place like in the living room over the coffee table.
3 Armless accent chairs with exposed wooden legs work great in small spaces. They have less visual weight and don’t appear to take up much space.
4 Highlight a piece of furniture by painting or adding wallpaper to the wall behind it. You don’t even have to do the whole wall. Just do a space that is slightly wider than the furniture and outline it with decorative molding.
5 Don’t be afraid of using dark paint on the walls in a dining room. The effect can be dramatic yet calming. A darker color also makes the walls recede, giving the impression the room is larger.
6 Just because a dining room table has room for six or eight chairs doesn’t mean you have to keep them there all the time. Put a couple of the chairs to use in other rooms until guests arrive. The extra open space around the table will keep it from looking crowded and cluttered.
7 Create a cozy dining area by using mismatched chairs. Unify them by painting them all the same color and using coordinating fabrics on cushions and table linens.
8 Layer textures on the bed to make it feel warm and cozy and bring in a variety of textures through different types of bedding and pillows. For some tips on how to make your bed with a designer’s touch, check out this post.
9 Adding a cushioned bench at the foot of the bed gives the room an additional touch of comfort and gives you a place to sit when putting on your shoes.
10 All the furniture doesn’t have to be the same color in a bedroom. Mixing white furniture with dark wood or painted furniture gives a room a contemporary vibe.
