Sticking to a neutral or earthy color scheme will help brighten up your room and give it an airy feel. For a youthful vibe, combine a main neutral color scheme with vibrant pops of color like yellow, blue or green.
Display Your Decor Vertically
Placing canvas art, frames and other wall decorations like sconces vertically helps elongate your room, thus making it appear larger. Add a few tall plants and a narrow, floor to ceiling bookshelf to complete the look.
Create A Reading Nook
A window sill is a perfect opportunity for a cozy reading nook. Simply add a large throw pillow and a blanket to add some dimension without taking up floor space.
Add An L-Shaped Couch
An L-shaped or sectional couch can help you use your space efficiently and set your living room apart from the rest of your house. For a fresh and open feel, we recommend a bright or neutral sectional paired with white chairs.
Make It A Collection Of Chairs
Ditch the large couch and go for a collection of plush, oversized chairs. Create dimension by adding a large rug and placing the chairs around the perimeter. For a stylish look, go for an eclectic collection of chairs.
Add A Clear Coffee Table
A clear coffee table can really help make your room feel a little bit bigger. For a modern look, add a few pops of color and tuck some cube-shaped stools underneath in case you need additional seating.
