These times that we are living in the world, it makes us reflect on us as human beings, our environment, and our planet. Some countries with more severe restrictions during this quarantine, make us aware that our home is always our little oasis. For this reason, I bring you these ideas so that you can transform your living room into a comfortable and inspiring space for today and always.
Lighting is a very important factor in interior design, especially natural light. Natural lighting provides comfort to our living room during quarantine, something essential considering that it is the social area where we spend much of our time together with family, friends and sometimes we even work.
Wide windows. If your house/apartment has these types of windows, then you are lucky. It is very beneficial that a large amount of light enters your room and is a great way of energy saving. In addition to highlighting the colors of floors, furniture, and decorative elements.
Small windows. If your windows are small, mirrors and walls in light colors would help a lot. Thus, achieving a larger room.
Wood, wool, cotton, linen, wicker are extremely attractive materials for a good decoration of a living room. This health crisis and quarantine has also shown us how our planet is regenerating and the importance of staying healthy. Be it through an appropriate diet and also with everything that is around us. That is our clothes and also our house. Thus natural materials take a fundamental role in our well-being. Natural materials achieve a beautiful combination with other colors, in addition to bringing warmth to your room. It also allows us to combine textures in our living room such as cushions, blankets, rugs, curtains, etc.
It is one of the favorite places in our house. When we are in our living room, we always have a preferred place where we can relax for a moment (a sofa or armchair). To have a reading corner, the important thing is that it is near a window from where it enters enough natural light. I recommend that you place a table, corner, low shelf or a bench, where you can have a good cup of tea or coffee. It is also very important to be comfortable in your reading corner so you could add some cushions or blankets.
Add color to your living room. When we talk about colors, they can be applied on a wall and in decorative objects (ornaments, paintings, textiles, etc.). As we already know, bright colors and white help to illuminate the space.
While colors such as red, green, yellow, blue, they attract a lot of attention and can be the protagonist of your space.
Flowers and plants
Plants and flowers not only delight us with their bright colors but also make space stand out, plants can give a color accent to your room.
Small plants. They can be placed on the coffee table accompanied by some books, on shelves next to some pictures, next to the window or on the same windowsill (we can have privacy if they are tall like orchids).
Medium or large plants. We can place it in the corners of the room, next to the sofa, dividing the space of the room with the dining room or next to a window.
Flowers. They are very charming and accompanied by a beautiful vase, there is no doubt that it predominated in our room. We can place them on coffee tables, side tables, shelves, shelves.
EXTRA: If you have young children at home
Quarantine with young children means toys surrounded by the whole house, especially in the room. The problem comes from having to put everything back in its place. One of the ways to save time and make it look tidy is to make a space in your room where you can store the toys that they like the most. Decorative baskets next to the sofa, baskets under the coffee table or in boxes inside a piece of furniture are a great solution.
