Decorating a house has always been a style statement. However it’s not just floors and walls that have the most impact on how a room looks, a sofa or seating arrangement is often the focal point that makes a design complete. Take a look below if you want some inspiration for what to do with your sitting rooms for any of the upcoming seasons.
You can really spruce up an eating area with dining chairs. You can style your home with a retro look which is always in season. It’s up to you whether to go for either a 60s art deco look to mix and match old and modern, or go all out with hand carved traditional pieces. You can also go for a colour complement scale, with each chair a different colour to liven up an eating area and help the space to look younger. It’s easy to think this is too loud an option, but works well if the rest of the room is natural.
Sofa So Good
Summer is that time when you really start to notice what your living space looks like. With the influence of the outside world on our eyes and windows, including some natural looking colours in your personal space is a wonderful addition. Preparing for the summer can be a good way to convince yourself it’s time for a new sofa. Having shades of green and blue in a room will both liven it up and calm it down, and sunny yellow is a staple in something like a conservatory. For some cheaper options, you can choose to upholster a sitting chair, or throw around some pillows. Be careful not to ham a sunny addition up too much in a well lit room; the indoors is your haven away from the sweltering heat.
It’s very stylish these days to include something like a sofa in a bedroom. If you’re lucky enough to have a master bedroom that has space for more than a bed and a dresser, including some seating can be a great way to fill the room creatively. It also makes you more likely to spend more time in there doing something other than sleeping. Having a desk
Creating A Kid’s ‘Work Space’
One minor seating tradition that we don’t often think about is giving our kids their own creative little space. Having a desk encourages their individuality and lets you know when more paper is needed. It’s a tidy place to keep crayons and colouring books, and is often small enough to place in any room of the house. On the plus side, your children can even indulge their grown up make-believe if they have their own little desk to sit at.
Following the trend isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so going against type is another viable option. However, if you’re looking for ideas on how to switch up a living space, looking at what’s in this season is a great place to start.
