Cookie-cutter homes are out and injecting your personality into your private space is in. While renovating your home to look like a resort may not be feasible given that we all have real-world budgets, you can still achieve the look you’re going for by adding pieces that complement your personality. Love imagining yourself living in a fairy garden or fancy destressing amidst a tropical Pinterest-inspired living room? Want to wow your guests with your one-of-a-kind home accessories? DIY interior designing makes it all possible with a little help from Comfort Furniture. Let’s get started on a few tips on how to achieve the Pinterest-worthy home of your dreams.
Throw pillows, cushions and poufs don’t just help to brighten up the room. Many amazing living room design ideas often include them to add a touch of warmth and comfort for when you just want to lounge around with your guests. Exercise your DIY interior designing skills with the placement of poufs such as the Chimo Poufs that come in 2 sizes and 4 colours for more variations. If being playful is your thing, then consider the Costello Stool or Holger Stool, as both of them come with a handy handle for easy shifting around the house. Or, functional stools like the Arsenal Stool or Alicia Stool that doubles up as storage solutions will reside well with the Marie Kondo in you. Throw a couple of cushions onto your sofa for some indulgent snuggling during movie nights and mix it up with different patterns and colours.
Love the idea of getting closer to nature but don’t fancy clearing up fallen leaves or dealing with pollen allergies? Try adding some artificial flower decorations to brighten up your home, instead. From delicate floral posies to life-sized artificial Monstera plants, you’ll be able to achieve the lush indoor garden you dreamed of without the hassle of maintaining real plants. Flower decorations can help soften the vibes of a home and make it gentler on the eyes as well. For a quirky touch, roll out a verdant carpet of grass for a doormat instead of normal rugs or carpets. Planters also make good room separators, particularly if you don’t want to make the area feel boxed in but still want to divide up your space.
A For Art
You don’t have to be an artist to appreciate good art, but if elaborate pieces are not your cup of tea then posters can help you liven up the space. Posters impart a contemporary vibe to your living room and can easily jazz up your wall design. However, if you prefer 3D functional art, the Shadow Wall Shelf will be right up your alley. Not only is it a trippy piece of art, but it’s also designed to add more storage space to your living room walls. You can showcase your favourite knick-knacks or books without taking up floor space plus get a gorgeous art installation all in one!
Nothing brightens up a room like pops of colour. While painting an accent wall might not be at the top of your list of living room design ideas, infusing some vibrancy into the space via the furniture would be the next best thing. Invest in brightly coloured pieces such as the very dramatic red Plunge 3-Seater Sofa and add on a stool that complements it, such as the Raul Stool for a bold living room set. Sofas with softer hues such as the Cullen Sofa or Kayama Sofa bring a state of calmness to your abode and can also be easily matched with the other furnishings in your house – perfect for those who are dabbling in interior designing for the first time!
While you’re busy DIY-ing the rest of your interior design plans, don’t forget to include lighting options into your list. Your gorgeous new living room won’t be complete without some form of illumination but don’t fret, you can easily find the lighting option of your choice from our wide range of LED mood-changing lamps and hanging lights, including the multi-functional Loyal Stool. For a cosy café setting, go for a covered light option such as the Light Hang – Cement. If you prefer a more industrial setting, the Light Hang – Cage or Light Hang – Bell may suit your living room design ideas better due to its edgy skeleton wire concept.
Decorating doesn’t have to be a nerve-wracking experience and you don’t need an interior designing degree to tell you how you want your home to look. Let your creative juices flow as you leave an everlasting impression on your guests with unique Comfort Furniture home accessories.
