    We’ve demystified styling the smaller spaces in your home with a few simple ideas we recommend to create space and design a calming sanctuary which perfectly aligns with your lifestyle.

    FUNCTIONAL DESIGN

    In smaller spaces storage is key and one thing you don’t want is clutter. When there are too many objects visible in your living room, it can look even smaller. Look for multi-functional furniture pieces such as sofas with storage underneath or entertainment units with multiple drawers to makecreating space simple.

    CHOOSE NEUTRAL TONES

    Aside from creating a calming and sophisticated environment, neutral tones give the illusion of a brighter and larger living space. Softer neutral tones help to liven up a room by reflecting natural light. Colours that you could incorporate for a more open room include white, beige, sage and light oak.

    ADD A TOUCH OF NATURE

    Adding some greenery to your living room is a great way to balance out those neutral tones. Often, including plant life in your living space can add depth and airiness depending on the size and shape of the greenery. This styling tip brings a pop of colour to any room and brings the outdoors in to create a more natural feel.

    DRAW THE EYE TO INTERESTING OBJECTS

    You can still incorporate styling pieces you love without cluttering your space. Try to integrate feature walls or centerpieces on tables, such as crystals or a ceramic vase. This will ensure that the room still feels open while showing off pieces you love.  

    SELECT THE RIGHT FURNITURE

    To ensure your furniture doesn’t take up too much space, we always recommend selecting pieces that have clean lines and a sleek design to allow them to fit effortlessly into your space. Always take measurements ahead of time and think about the walkways through your living room, to make sure that your new piece of furniture doesn’t interrupt the flow of the room.
