Be Consistent. Every room in your home can and should be different, however, you do need to maintain continuity from room to room. When arranging and decorating your family or living area take a look at everything that “touches” it, all the connected spaces. Think of the way you dress yourself, tying the pieces of your wardrobe together is much the same as tying together the rooms in your home.
Accent your Neutrals. Neutral colors will stand the test of time. Unless you can afford to change things often, use neutrals on the walls and for larger, more expensive pieces. Incorporate the latest trends or colors in easily replaced accents such as pillows and throw blankets.
Final Touches. One item often overlooked are window coverings. They are functional, blocking glare on TV screens, protecting flooring and furnishings, reducing heat or keeping the cold out, and adding privacy. They also put the finishing touches on your room’s décor. A local window covering expert will help you consider your options and find the best choice for your budget, décor, and lifestyle.
Follow these expert tips, add your own style, have fun and before you know it everything will come together in your family room making it feel “just right” to you and your guests!
