1. Art on the Wall
Lounge settings on films and in magazines are always so perfectly set. Everything in the setting goes so well together, but what really makes it stand out is the art on the wall. Hanging random art together in pairs of 3 diagonally or horizontally immediately creates an interesting effect to any room. They look even better in pairs of 4 or 6, be bold with it and allow it to be the most eye catching element of the room.
2. Don’t Divide Small Spaces
When you’ve got a small space in your dining room or anywhere in the house, don’t divide it. By dividing small spaces you are only making it appear even smaller. Instead of dividing it, create an illusion with the angles of furniture/décor items you use in that space to make it seem bigger than what it actually is.
3. Use Side Tables
This is to make the room feel and seem more comfortable and relaxing. By incorporating side tables in your lounge or bedroom, it immediately creates an intimate and elegant setting. Your first thought when entering a room with a side table should be to kick your feet up and curl yourself up with some hot tea and a good book. They add the ultimate finish to any room!
4. Showcase your TV
Your flat screen TV is one sleek and stylish decorative item when placed in the right spot. Use your TV to your advantage and show it off where you can. It will instantly make the room much more elegant and luxurious.
5. Your Fifth Wall
Your fifth wall is the one that completes your room, your ceiling. If you really want to decorate like the experts then don’t ever forget about your ceiling. By hanging a vintage style chandelier is already one way of changing things up.
