When you place certain pictures of your family on the wall or choose certain cushion covers, you’re styling your home. The purpose is to strike a balance between aesthetics and functionality, and using this living room, I’ll show you how it’s done. Styling as a concept works very differently for different people and at the end of the day it reflects one’s personality. However, while styling a space, you can definitely keep certain factors in mind. Let me break it down for you. The first of all being colour, as it becomes
a very essential part of your personality and your room’s personality, and you can add this colour using cushions, throws, rugs and even artefacts for that matter. The next thing is object of personality. Object of personality could be anything from
a very quirky artefact to your favourite artwork or to a souvenir that you really love. Then, we can add some greens, some books to the room that sort of bring the entire room together and then we can
definitely add something personal to the room like a mug that was gifted by a
grandmom or your favorite family picture, anything that makes it feel like a home. So let’s have a look at what this room essentially
consists of. It has this white wall with these mouldings, it has this wooden unit, this Winchester fabric sofa and that solid wooden table. So if you take a look at the room it consists of browns and whites and it’s a really Colonial looking room. So the colours that we’ve picked are yellows with a hint of gold, and reds that sort of complement the entire look of the room. Okay great, let’s dive into it! So we’re adding these quirky looking artefacts on the table and on the unit with some books and some greens here and there. We’re also adding a hint of gold on both the woods. On the sofa we’re adding a dull finished sequin cushion and to complement that we’re adding a white and gold cushion and to break the entire pattern of golds and whites we’re adding this yellow colour cushion. Beside, we’re adding these long candle stands that sort of give depth and definition to the entire room and for the wall we’re adding this beautiful looking yellow and white painting and then we’ve added some greens here and there and with the painting, with the red, with the golds and the white we’re bringing this entire look together.
