The place where the walls meet the floor defines the size of a room both physically and visually. You can’t alter the location of your walls without a construction crew, but using living room decor that emphasizes the wall’s height draws the eye up and makes the room appear bigger. To accomplish this hang floor-length curtains close to the ceiling, use tall bookshelves to compel guests to look up or install crown molding.
The ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked. By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic. The effect can be subtle if you choose a muted shade, or you can brighten a white room with a bold color. If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.
A cool, neutral color palette keeps this living room simply chic. The eye can’t help but be drawn to the pretty pastel wall art in this living room. You don’t even miss the TV with all this music centric room decor. An area rug is one thing, but painting an entire section of wall in a contrasting color really drives home the point that this living room is separate from the rest of the home. What a unique coffee table.
