Lighting Tip

Lighting is extremely important. It creates ambiance, change your mood and makes a space more inviting and welcoming. So, give each part of your living room a subtle glow to shed the best intensity at any time.

Don’t Forget

Do not neglect texture! It matters. Every surface has to be pleasing to the eye and touch . Living room is the right place to fill with luxurious and elegant furnishings, fabrics and artistic finishes.

Choosing Paint Colors

Color plays a vital role in our lives. A wall color can energize or make a space more peaceful. Choose neutrals and blues to create a peaceful and serene environment, reds and yellows to warm it up. In rooms where you entertain or simply relax with family, subtle colors and hues allow for versatility. However, the best way to choose a living room color is to know what mood you want to create: soothing or invigorating, inviting or intimate. The best option is to start with a neutral palette, and then to add nuances by way of decorating or furnishing.
