Adding a Pop of Color to Your Living Room

How to add a pop of color to your living room, living room with green accents

Adding a bright, happy color to the living room can create a positive atmosphere in your home. Breathing a bit of life into your home during these gray winter days is as simple as incorporating a pop of color into the living room. Here are a few ways to do this:

Pillows

Brightly colored pillows, like the ones on this Chandler Sectional by England Furniture, are simple details that can make a huge difference. Pillows can be an inexpensive update to a room, and if you’re handy, you can even reupholster pillows by hand.

Accent Furniture

Accent chairs and ottomans, like England Furniture’s Kinnett Chair or the small Hollie Storage Ottoman, can add an interesting dimension into a room by introducing a whole new vibe. To have an accent piece blend into a room, it’s important to integrate that color throughout other parts of the room so that it doesn’t stick out.

Art

Adding striking art to the walls helps to make the room look more complete. Whether you opt for larger scale paintings or smaller framed water colors, pieces of art can add a splash of color to a wall without having to paint. You can also add vases tucked in a corner or prominently displayed on an end table or coffee table.

Leather Wingback Chair

The leather wingback chair is styled to reflect the feel of a British nobleman’s countryside cottage. The Colleen Chair by England Furniture has styling that would fit in to a classy and cozy room. It would pair well with a stately chesterfield sofa and leather-bound books lining the walls.

With rolled arms, s-curved legs, and a graceful silhouette, this leather wingback chair could be a gorgeous addition to a house. England Furniture offers a wide variety of luxurious leathers in various shades so you can coordinate with the rest of your home.

Arranging A Small Living Room

If you have a small living room, here are several ways to utilize your space so that you don’t feel cramped, yet you can fit everything in one spot. Here are some tips on arranging a small living room:

Go with a Loveseat

A loveseat is typically shorter than a sofa is, so that can be a huge space saver. Loveseats can also be paired with a great ottoman like this England Furniture Hollie Storage Ottoman 2F081LH (pictured). It is compact, and you can store away anything from blankets to board games. Furniture with storage built in is another way to utilize your space effectively.

Mirrors

Mirrors positioned opposite to windows or hallways can make a space feel bigger than it actually is. It brings more light in to a room and has the effect of creating more space.

Before you start arranging, use painter’s tape to outline where you want furniture to go—this will save you a considerable amount of effort as you start rearranging.

The Nail Head Trim Furniture Trend

Interior design is constantly changing, but often refers back to design elements of the past. Nail head trim is one such trend that evokes elements from antique furniture. Nail head trim is hardware that is added to the edge of a piece of furniture, often across the front, back or arm panels. This detail is added for aesthetic reasons, rather than technical. England Furniture often comes with the option to add this detail, and it can look spectacular in many homes.

Pictured is the Renea Sofa as well as the Anne Ottoman with Nails. Both of these pieces include a nail head trim that give them a bit of an edge. The turned legs mimic each other, and would look great in a space with other antique details.

England Furniture Reviews Picking the Perfect Furniture Fabric

When you’re redecorating, one of the first things you might do is set a color palate. Once you have a combination of colors in mind, and you set out to find the furniture, paint and lighting to fit your vision, you may run into a road block. Selecting the fabric to upholster a piece of furniture might be a challenge when given so many options. Here, England Furniture reviews things to consider when choosing fabric for your new furniture.

Bring Samples with You
Whether it’s a swatch of fabric or a paint chip, keeping these samples in your purse or wallet may help you when inspiration strikes. If you see a pillow or other room accessory at a store, you can get a better idea of how the colors might look together using paint chips and fabric swatches.

Avoid Sticking to Trends
Your home will stand the test of time, but often, trends do not. Instead of including trends that you do not totally love in your home, opt for fabrics that you are drawn to. Consider colors that have made you happy throughout your life.

Storing Clutter Away

Keeping a living space tidy is no small task! Organization skills are a sort of art form that can take years to master. Unless you’re a professional organizer, there are simple tricks to help keep clutter at bay. Work with the space that you do have, and stay on top of purging things from the house that you no longer need. Here are some other ways to store clutter away:

England Furniture has a variety of pieces that can help you control clutter around your house with built-in storage. The England Sectional EZ6G00 (pictured) has storage built right into the arm rest. You can fit magazines, remotes, and other smaller objects in this multifunctional sectional. Ottomans are also great storage containers, and the England Furniture Company offers a wide variety of ottomans that can fit blankets, board games and more.

If it doesn’t “go” anywhere, odds are you do not need it and can toss it. This standard rule can help you stay organized if you make sure every item has its own place. If you can’t point out where an item belongs in your house, odds are it is clutter.

The Right Furniture Color for Your Lifestyle

Ever watch a movie or TV show and fall in love with the furniture? You know, beautiful stark white down couches with a white shag throw rug and glass top coffee table? It can look picture perfect, but if you duplicate the style in a house full of kids and Rover the family pooch, that look might last about thirty seconds. Maybe.

We all want to live in spaces that make us happy and we can more readily do that when we are realistic about our lifestyles and what comes with it. People who enjoy entertaining will have a hard time with furniture that can’t be lived in because spills and accidents happen in life. If you have kids or children visit often, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable for them will end up making your life easier, especially if they wander a little too close to your collection of first editions while sucking on a juice box.

The colors and accessories we choose for our rooms should complement our personalities and accent the things we love. Sometimes it’s safe to have the main furniture be a neutral color and then use pillows and blankets as colorful accents. If you love leather or dark furniture, then you can brighten the room with lighter shades of paint and bright lighting. No matter what you decide, look at your lifestyle and try to match it to your home décor.

We can still fawn over that white furniture, but parents might want to hold off until the kids are a little bit older.
