Get creative with lighting. Thanks to its larger size and corner or L-shape, the sectional can balance different types of light fixtures. Below, clustered pendant lights visually fill the gap carved out by a corner sectional. Consider installing a statement light fixture above your sectional.
Let me start by stating the obvious to my regular readers: I’ve never really shown this room on the blog before. When we first moved in, we had the tv on a bench in front of the window, two oversized brown leather pieces floating opposite the tv, a bookcase tucked into the corner, and an old tufted ottoman in the center. They all looked beautiful in our old living room (where the tv hung on the wall above the fireplace), but in this room they were awkward and totally inefficient. The room felt cramped, and we could still only seat 4-5 people.
Designers agree for both practical and stylistic reasons: "Typically sectionals can double your seating," says Victoria Hagan, whose new book Dream Spaces debuts this October from Rizzoli. And maxing out the seating options in a small living room is of course paramount, whether your goal is to fit the whole family for movie night or just successfully stretch out (we repeat: stretching out is not possible on a love seat).
4. New cushion: A new life for the living room means new cushion. Along with the previous suggests; you need to get new cushion with more colorful look. If you wish to save more money; you can also change the cover only. Find floral cover or any patterns with lively color such as orange or yellow.
5. Touch of flowers: Bringing the color to living room can be achieved to real flowers as well. Pick any flowers you like and put it to the corners or on the table in your room. Have it hanged is also a good choice. Flowers such as daffodils will elaborate floral arrangement and settle a nice feeling for your colorful summer sofa.
