Simple things to change your living room

August 25th, 2010

We walk in and out of our living room, but rarely do we notice it. One can easily become complacent with the status quo, but it doesn’t take much to make a lasting change that everyone will notice.

Change things up and see what you think. You can always go back.

–       Use flowers as an inexpensive way to lighten the room.

–       A large stack of books can become an interesting end table.

–       A lamp that’s worth looking at whether it’s on or off can create conversation.

–       You can add light to a room with a well-placed mirror.

–       Take advantage of your windows by grouping couches together to create conversation.

–       Using lighting correctly can turn a dark corner into a prime reading spot.
