Living Room / June 8, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
Combining different elements – wood, stone, glass, metal, leather – together with a variety of surfaces, from smooth and shiny to rough and nubbly, is easy to achieve. Layering different fabrics is a great way to bring texture to the fore – provided patterns are all within the same colour family, it will work.
Show off your key focal point by framing it appropriately painting a wall a strong colour is the perfect backdrop for, say, striking artwork, a dramatic mirror, or display. Consider lighting, too this should be arranged to show off your chosen focal point to best advantage so that it doesn’t get ‘lost’ once night falls… and of course, there’s no reason why a fabulous light fixture, such as a sparkling chandelier or dramatic pendant, shouldn’t be the star, too.
A room will feel more comfortable and inviting if it has a focal point, whether that’s an architectural feature, a fantastic view, an arresting piece of furniture, or artwork. The idea is that it draws the eye – it should be the first thing that’s noticed on entering a room - and if possible, furnishings should be arranged around it.
For many people, the comfort of a living room outranks the aesthetic value but you can combine the two effortlessly, by focusing on a cosy finish. If you're wondering which motifs will help to capture the right essence.
