Rajat Singhi, Founder and Creative Director of Address Home, a luxury interior brand, has shared five tips to decorate your living room:
WORK ON WARM, WELCOMING AND COSY INTERIORS
Avoid placing couches and chairs along the walls, pull them near, around the centre table or wooden coffee table, this will give your home a cosier ambience.
USE TWO-TONED COLOURS AND SOFT, WARM TOUCHES
With this, you can bring warmth and depth to any room of your house. There are many warm colour options like red, yellow, cream and orange. These colours resemble fire and evoke feelings of warmth. White and green can also be added as these will create a cheerful vibe.
Though there is no need to colour the entire home, choose neutrals, and floral pattern curtains, cushions, bed sheets or add freshness through flowers and wall art. This will also help you and others feel calm and blissful.
LIGHTING IS ESSENTIAL TO CREATE A COSY ATMOSPHERE
During winter, brighten up your living room with small yet beautiful lights that will create a warm and radiant atmosphere.
There are a variety of lights available in the market, but it’s important to get the light, right. You need to think about the space first and then decide on the style of lighting. You can go for soft mood lighting with a layered effect, table lamps, floor lamps beside ceiling fixed lights to make the living area visually appealing. And specially in winters, don’t forget to bring decorative yet attractive aromatic candles that will give a cosy yet comfort setting.
PICK A FABRIC THAT SUITS YOUR DECOR
PERSONALISE YOUR SPACE
Take or pick some family photographs, put them together into an interesting frame and display it on your living room wall.
You can also create a photo gallery and keep it on the coffee table, or fill the shelves with books, and souvenir items. While keeping furniture close, don’t forget the corners, fill the corner with wooden stands or keep a tall potted plant.
