When we’re decorating our living room, we sometimes find ourselves asking, ‘is this for us or for our guests?’ It’s a good question, especially if you’re used to entertaining a lot, but the truth is you want your living room to be an amazing place for hanging solo and for blow-outs with your besties. So what do you need?
Great seating is an obvious must, and with our phenomenal selection you’ll never have to choose between a great looking and great feeling seat. In particular, we love stools and ottomans because they help us stretch our legs when we’re lying around on lazy Sundays, but they do double duty as seating when a few more guests than expected show up. Try out a light stained wood stool with a thatched straw seat for a welcoming boho-chic vibe that pairs perfectly with canvas sofas and rustic distressed wood coffee tables. If space is an issue consider stacking options, so extras can easily be tucked away and brought out as needed.
Speaking of space, if your living room is feeling a bit cramped, floating shelves are the best way to get rid of clutter while creating a showcase of what’s most important for you. Decorate these sleek shelves with your favourite films and novels, and toss up a couple of movie posters or framed covers for added emphasis. Walls still looking a bit bare? Metal wall art is sure to look absolutely stunning next to these shelves, especially in matching colours.
