When styling larger rooms, use of space is crucial. Strategic use of carpets, furniture and decoration can create spacious, balanced rooms that are a pleasure to spend time in. When dealing with cosier living rooms, it’s all about giving the impression of space. Select clever colour schemes for the walls, add textures with bricks or tiles, and find the right balance of furnishings to create somewhere that is relaxing but not cluttered. You can also fine-tune the mood created by the room—from exciting, vivid colours and decorations to cool, pastel tones that relax the mind. It’s up to the desires of the person styling the room.
