Here are a few quick and easy tips to bring a little warmth and a bit of luxury to your living room space.
Add rich color.

Add books to your living room space.

Books can add interest to any space. Although most people do most of their reading digitally, actual books can also serve as a great design accessory. A few interesting books stacked on a coffee table can immediately make the room more interesting by adding texture and color to the space. Add books that reflect your interests or hobbies, and you’ll find yourself paging through them often, especially on a cold winter day.

Change or add table lamps.

Lighting can really change how a space feels. A room always feels more inviting when you have amazing lighting. It’s important that the lighting comes from different sources, not just ceiling lighting. Table lamps illuminate the space, giving it a soft glow. Table lamps also give you task lighting as well as the lamps themselves become interesting objects in the room.

Add textiles

Adding a luxurious throw blanket or a few new accent pillows can really change the look of your space. But if you like things to feel luxurious, try adding a mix of different textures, velvets, faux furs, or silk blends; anything that feels soft to the skin can create a luxurious environment.

Add rich color.

Create a furniture arrangement that makes you want to stay in the space.

Create a cozy nook for reading with a chair, a side table, and a lamp. Arrange your furniture so that it is conducive to conversation. How you arrange furniture is just as important as the individual pieces you include in your space. Think about the types of activities that go on in any space and how you can comfortably allow for that activity in a space plan. This helps to create rooms that function well and look pleasing to the eye. Just moving around a few pieces can enhance the function of a space.

Add accessories that are interesting and that can provide a personal touch.

A collection of items from your travels, photos from a family gathering, or other collectibles displayed properly can not only add interest to a space, but these personal touches can also help to provide a warm and welcoming environment in which you can spend time. These personal touches are what bring personality to a space, providing a unique and distinct character to your living room. These are the touches that make your room uniquely yours.

Add fragrance to your space.

Quality candles, uniquely displayed, can provide a sense of luxury. A beautiful diffuser with a personal combination of essential oils can give your space a sense of luxury. Whether illuminated by a candle or the soft mist of a diffuser, these elements not only provide fragrance, but a luxurious ambiance to your home.

Until next time,
