Furniture Style & Shapes
A cozy living room needs to have furniture that looks comfortable and makes you want to sit on it. Furniture that has smooth and curved edges helps your living room feel more inviting and warm. Soft and rounded furniture gives your room a more carefree feel and welcoming to both you and guests. If you have hardwood or concrete floors, consider getting an area rug to help define your space. Be sure to remember- if you do choose rounded furniture, you’ll want to have a circular or oval coffee table or ottoman to match styles.
Nobody wants to sit in an overly bright room- turn off the overhead lights! A bright overhead light can make you and your guests feel awake and alert- which can be either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the mood you’re trying to set. We suggest installing a dimmer switch onto your overhead light so that you can control the brightness to suit your needs. If you’re not an electrician, try incorporating plenty of access lighting such as: tabletop lamps, accent lights or floor lamps. Using lamp lights, you are more likely to set the mood with a softer warmer light.
While lighting can really bring a living room alive, one of the things that can make or break even the most beautiful designs- smell. Nobody wants to be in a room that smells, let alone get comfortable. Using warm uplifting scents can really take your space to the next level. We suggest finding a scent that brings you back to a time when you were relaxed and at peace. Some of our favorites include: woody, lavender, and fresh scents. Smell can have a very powerful impact on your mood and how you perceive an environment.
