Does your living room have a fireplace? The hearth invites people to gather. It also draws their eyes. so it's important to make the most of this design space. There is a fine line between a stark. nearly bare mantel and a cluttered one. The rule of threes can help you walk it with confidence.When you peruse design blogs. you'll see the rule of threes in living room mantels everywhere.
You already have a living room. so infuse some personality into your den or family room. creating a space which expresses who your family really is. Make it personal with favorite photos. artwork and other objects. Make the space more vibrant by adding bold color. and make it special with a unique family theme.
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.
Don't limit yourself to the walls of your home. If you have outdoor space. use it. Setting out a few chairs where you can relax and enjoy the balmy spring evenings expands your living space to the outdoors. where you'll find an abundance of brightness. You get extra points if you can set up your outdoor living area near an indoor one. Leaving the door open between the spaces connects the two. bringing that fresh feeling of the outdoors in.
