The designer of this modern family room broke up the space into different sections. including a sitting and TV area. a cocktail area by the fireplace. and a small home library. Although this room is designed in white and light colors. all the materials are low-maintenance and easy to clean. A chalkboard is mounted behind the large sectional for messages and scribbles.
Your guests will want to put down drinks. You might even want to put your feet up. But it's also a focal point of the room. Turn to the rule of three to help you dial in decor that impresses and relaxes.When arranging your coffee table. group items in threes. Have a stack of coffee table books? Try three of them. Have candles on the table? Group three of them together.
Mix a fuzzy blanket with soft. furry throw pillows and more structured canvas ones. Combine a tightly-woven throw with velvet lumbar pillows and large fleecy ones. Play with textures. Using the rule of three will keep your couch from looking messy while giving you space to explore.Three focal points make your mantel modern and interesting.Mind your mantel with the rule of three
The principle also applies to furniture. How much do you really sit on that chair? Could it be replaced with something that folds up and is put away when you don't have company?You might also want to invest in larger furniture. which seems counterintuitive. But when you have a small chair and love seat. they actually take up more room because you have to leave space between them.
