Happy, cheerful colors evoke a fun, kid-friendly atmosphere. In her own home, designer and mom Alison Kandler paired a navy sofa with wicker furniture and a distressed coffee table, but the brightly striped area rug and candy-colored pink and floral pillows help tie all the hues together. The family space serves multiple functions: a place for kids to create art and play, a home office and a spot to relax as a family.
Personalize your living room with a fun saying. For this inexpensive update, look for wood, chipboard or cardboard letters at craft stores, then cover them in patterned scrapbook paper, pretty gift wrap, leftover wallpaper or vintage maps.
As one of the most social spaces in the house, your living room needs to look good, work hard and function well. Before you begin any work, take a little time to work out how the space functions for you. Is it a relaxing haven, and entertaining space of family central? A sophisticated neutral palette helps create a comfortable feel in this kitchen living area. The trick is to pay attention to balancing the colour scheme and keeping everything in proportion. An open-plan layout is a fundamental part of modern family schemes and this one incorporates all aspects of living.
If your budget allows, go for a complete makeover. Start with a neutral base, selecting all your permanent pieces, such as sofas, chairs and tables, in go-with-anything neutral shades. Then, add in color and style with pillows, framed artwork and accessories. Here, designer Joel Snayd uses a gray-and-white color palette to set the tone for this contemporary farmhouse living room. He brings in the glam with all the pieces that can be switched out later, like the floral-printed stools, colorful bolster pillows and eclectic mix of accessories.
