Does your home suffer from the winter blues? Worry not; your friends here at Decorium have you covered. Today we’ll be going over some great ideas to warm up three spaces – the bedroom, living room and dining room.
Of all the rooms in your home, the bedroom is the most personal, so it’s essential to create an environment you love. To achieve this, start with the furniture. The perfect bed will fit the scale of the room and set the tone for the entire space. Next up, add accessories with soft accent pieces. A nice rug under the bed works well here, and a blanket throw makes a great accent. The paint you choose for the space is key; pick a colour you love and stick to it. As for the lighting, you’ll want to select a light fixture that blends well with the room’s furniture. Don’t be afraid to go bold and try something unique. To finish the room, dress up the walls. Hanging interesting artwork is a great technique for introducing colour to a space. Finally, declutter the room. A cluttered room is not a happy room.
The living room is where you and your family probably spend the most time together, so choosing the right sofa is paramount to achieving a comfortable space. In addition to usability, the colour of your sofa is very important, as it will set the tone for the entire room. Warm up the floors by adding a nubby wool rug, then accessorize in style with florals or abstract artwork and fun, patterned accent pillows. Add a conversation piece like an accent chair backed by a funky fabric. As for the paint, we recommend a colour from a more neutral palette. Adding a blue undertone creates a feeling of freshness.
Finally, let’s talk about the dining room. You’ll want to select a paint that works with the rest of the home, so if you have an open concept, avoid clashes by using the same colour as the living room. As with the sofa and the bed before, you’ll want to choose furniture that fits well with the dimensions of the room. The table will be the main focus, so it’s important that it works within the space. Underneath, we recommend an area rug in a warm tone that’s large enough for the table and all the chairs. Of course it’s the lighting that will set the mood, so make sure you choose a fixture that suits the scale of the room. Go with rectangular if the room is long, or try a circular shape if the table is round or square. A dimmer is an absolute essential.
So as you can see, it isn’t that hard to warm up the rooms in your home and get them exactly as you want them. Come on by Decorium and let us help you warm up your space!
