Living Room Update

The addition of two Barcelona chairs and a trendy zig-zag rug have transformed this living room into a more masculine yet comfortable space.

Hey Alana! Those are some bold colors you have picked! You are absolutely right, the space feels rather masculine right now, doesn't it? I guess I am compensating for something, haha. Accessories are always an easy and affordable way of changing things up. If you find some accessories with feminine lines (such as candle holders or vases) in whites or orange, that may help tremendously. I would go for impact so get a bunch and make a statement out of them. Another, a bit more costly way, is to change up the chairs. The ones I currently have are very strict and boxy which makes their shape rather masculine. You could soften things up with a more feminine, retro-looking chair (from, say, Urban Outfitters or even Ikea - they have added some gorgeous chairs in their latest collection).

Hope this helps! I would love to see what you do with the space so if you don't mind shooting me an e-mail with your pic, I would love to check it out! merus.design@att.net
