LIVING IT UP WITH YOUR INTERIOR
The living room is where we spend most of our time, and it’s certainly the room our visitors see the most of — so it’s important the space is both functional and stylish.
New interior design trends are starting to emerge: think warmer colour palettes with earthy tones, layering natural materials and textures, and softer furniture shapes.
Before you start searching “lounge room ideas Australia” and getting totally overwhelmed, it’s important to go back to basics and ask yourself how the space is going to be used, as your design decisions and decorative choices will be influenced by the use of the room.
Curvy, plump shapes are growing in popularity for sofas and occasional chairs, and their sculptural form is a great way to begin modernising your space.
Velvet and velour are here to stay, so if you’re only making minor decorative updates to your lounge room, try adding velvet with cushions in an earthy colour palette, or even a velvet ottoman or armchair.
LIVING ROOM WALL IDEAS TO TRANSFORM YOUR INTERIOR
Mirrors are regularly used for living room wall decor as they add light and ambiance, as well as creating the illusion of more space — especially if placed on the opposite side of the room to a window.
If you’re thinking of trying out something bold but are worried about the cost (or even changing your mind), try removable wallpaper.
Easy to install and remove (as the name suggests), removable wallpaper is becoming more popular and is a super practical and affordable way to decorate your living room walls.
The best bit? It’s not permanent, which is great if you’re renting.
