Making your Lounge Beautiful: Top Buys for the Homely Feel13.9.13
Coming home after a hard day’s work will always be an enjoyable moment – walking through your own front door, kicking off your shoes and feeling the carpet between your toes as you settle in for the night, relaxing with your loved one. While your home will always be the place you feel most comfortable, there are ways in which you can make it feel more homely.
After all, you don’t just want your house to feel homely to you but also to visitors along the way. With a few little tips, you can ensure your home is as welcoming as possible and as the busiest area in your home; the living room is a superb place to start.
Choose warm colours in your lounge that will ensure everyone who tries to relax within its walls will feel snug and comfortable. While a popular paint choice for walls may be the trusty magnolia, step out of your comfort zone and choose something a little warmer. A feature wall would suffice if you didn’t want to opt for all-over colour.
Is it time to invest in a new seating arrangement? Take a look at the beautiful British plush sofas at Sofas and Stuff and add some beautiful cushions or a lavish throw which will reflect your individual personality.
It’s easy to spend a fortune on doing up a living room to try and make it cosier when really; you don’t have to spend much at all. Add personal touches such as family photographs to the walls for an immediate homely feel, without breaking the bank.
Be practical when it comes to what you’re walking on. Wooden floors are easy to maintain and clean but they’re not the warmest of things to tread. Consider a rug, such as a beautiful, colourful shag pile, that will bring the room together whilst also injecting a splash of colour to an otherwise dull floor.
Make sure that your personality shines through in the living room and throughout your home. After all, your home is a reflection of who you are and if you’re a homely, inviting person, your home should be too.
