Danielle called Love Your Space because she wanted a more current look for her living room and entry way without spending a ton of money on new items. We were up for the challenge!
Here's how we accomplished that in the living room:
1. On the wall above the couch we needed to create more negative space. It gives the eye a chance to rest in between groupings. Instead of having the pictures spread out on the wall we created one focal point by grouping them together.
2. We created dimension and layers on the couch by gathering a cozy throw blanket and pillows from other rooms in the house.
3. The curated small vignette on the coffee table lends some warmth to the space.
4. The only piece purchased for the house was this floor lamp from Target. We are loving their new Project 62 line. LYS Tip: When working with a small room utilize your vertical space, it helps to draw the eye up.
Next we moved in to the entry way. By hanging a small gallery grouping with items Danielle already owned above the bench, we created an inviting and functional space. We chose to pull these four items together based on their warm color tones that we carried in from the living room. LYS TIP: Hanging pictures together in a modern grouping is an easy way to create an updated look with items you already own.
Lastly, we completed this cozy nook by adding some simple touches. First we switched out the cabinet for the smaller ottoman which pairs better with the size of the chair. LYS TIP: Throw blankets and pillows are an easy update to any space. Don't be afraid to play around with colors and mixed patterns.
What do you think? Have you made any easy no cost/low cost updates in your home recently?
Happy Home Making!
