Guest post- It is not the room, it is the accessories: Four ways to accessorize your living room!

Every girl knows that an outfit is not complete without the
right accessories. This rule does not just apply to your clothing though, and it
is not just women that ought to abide by it.

No; in fact, every single room in your house needs to be
properly accessorized if it is to make a real statement and there is no room
more important when it comes to this than your living room.

This is the room where you are likely to do most of your
relaxing. You get home from work and sit down for a night in front of the TV,
you invite friends over and chat for hours on the sofa with a bottle of wine.

So, it stands to reason that you will want such an important room
to look great.

1) Choose statement
curtain poles

You have hung stunning drapes that match the upholstery on your
sofas and chairs perfectly, but did you know that you can also grab peoples’

2) Lay feature rugs

Placing a rug in the center of your room can help to give it
some direction and also tie in other elements of your interior design.

You could use a rug to add another texture to the room, which
will help to create a homely atmosphere, or you could use it to effectively
round up all of the colours featured in the room perfectly.

3) Hang eye-catching

No matter where your interests lie, you are sure to be able to
find artworks that you can hang on your living room walls to give the room a
bit more character.

Whether you choose to frame posters to make them a little more
sophisticated, or purchase a large oil painting from a gallery, you can
make your artwork a talking point at your next dinner party.

4) Play with lighting

The lighting of your living room can often make or break it;
too dark and it will seem oppressive, too bright and it will seem clinical.

So consider fitting an overhead light with a dimmer switch,
and place a few table lamps throughout the room, depending on its size. Make
sure you choose lampshades that are in-keeping with the overall design.
