It’s officially time to wave goodbye to summer, and any chance of another heatwave (sob); however, this does mean that all the good T.V shows are on, and it’s the beginning of those much-loved cosy seasons ahead. After a busy day at work, with the kids, or a mixture of everything; there’s no place that welcomes you more than your sofa. Getting cosy in the family living room is the perfect way to enjoy an array of entertainment, catch -up, and make the most of each other’s company. Therefore, it’s worth ensuring that your living space lives up to expectations. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and advice for those who want to give their lounge a boost, just in time for the X-Factor and cosy autumn nights in together.
Plenty Of Personality
An interior space is the perfect way to show off our personal style and taste, so it’s worth putting some time and effort into designing rooms that reflect who we are. Maybe you have a favourite colour that everyone knows you for, in which case, you should bring that hue into your living room, ensuring everyone who walks into it will instantly feel that they’re in your home. You don’t have to go as far as painting a wall or whole room (although, why not be brave); you can add rugs, cushions, and throws, to bring in colours and patterns you love, so the look of your lounge can be easily changed when your personal style evolves.
Invest in furniture that will last a lifetime, and that will be a timeless piece that will suit your changing decor; it’s worth checking out designers like Piet Hein Eek for some inspiration and ideas on key pieces to boost your interior. Another way to portray your personality is through wall art and photographs. If you spend a lot of time in your lounge, it’s comforting to be surrounded by happy memories that pictures often bring to a room. You can create a feature wall, full of items, photography and trinkets that you’ve collected over the years, which will make a beautiful talking point and ensure your living room feels like home.
A Dreamy Space To Hang
The living room is usually where you’ll end up gravitating towards each evening and on weekend-days when you’ve decided the rain is not going to stop anytime soon. Therefore, creating a cosy and comfortable haven to hang out in is a smart idea. If you’re sat with your feet up, reading Vogue, you want to have invested in a sofa that you can relax on, and that doesn’t skimp on your personal interior style. Whether you choose a charcoal-grey modern couch, or you’re more of a brown chesterfield sofa kind of a girl, it’s worth putting some thought into what will suit you and your living space the best.
The more you take pride and care in your family living room, the better it will look after you. It’s worth the effort of getting the interior design just how you like it, so you’ll always look forward to being in there whether you’re eating, online shopping, or having a movie night in with friends. It’s important in your busy life to feel like we have a sanctuary to return to each day, so all the stresses can ebb away. Now; Netflix and chill.
