We are going to hit the magical spot that marries function and style to create a space that tells your story and makes you happy every time.

What do you really need in a living room? Most experts recommend a sofa, two storage pieces, two chairs, a coffee table, two side tables, rugs, and an entertainment centre or a console masquerading as one. It might seem like a lot of furniture but if you get the foundation right, you can refresh your styling seasonally or whenever it takes your fancy without breaking the bank. The other key recommendation is the eighty-twenty rule. Keep eighty per cent of your pieces to a neutral palette and you can play with colour and display the other twenty per cent. So far, so chic.

 

From Netflix and Chill to Cocktail Queen

Here are the key tips and tricks to setting up your living space for any occasion. If you love nothing more than curling up with a good book, use rugs to define space and create a reading zone. For those who are more Netflix and chill, start with your entertainment centre and arrange your furniture around it. For the entertainers, try setting up your furniture in a circle so everyone feels welcome and the stage is set for spontaneous fun. And finally, the cocktail hour enthusiasts will find that placing furniture to face each other makes for easy, intimate conversation.

 

Tell your Story

Ultimately, this is your home and the living room is a space that you spend loads of time in, well, living. The things you choose to display as collections, vignettes and artworks should be pieces you love and make you happy. One approach to curate and connect with your own decorating magic is to start with one thing you truly love and let it be the driver for that particular vignette. Is it a teeny tiny trinket dish you brought back from your time in Paris as an exchange student? Or perhaps a book or stunning painting that moves you in some way? Whether it is a colour, a shape or a memory, find a common theme to create a collection and add pieces you love to tell the story of you and your family.

 

It’s Alive!

Of course, plants and flowers. There is nothing like organic elements to soften a room and bring loads of life and energy. They also add a point of difference to the sea of straight lines and perfect circles that typically dominate most rooms. Play with scale and include some elegant blooms or delicate foliage alongside oversized plants that tower over a chair or console. Including a few in your living room will transform the space in a flash and plants bring the added bonus of being able to solve the issue of the dreaded awkward corner. (Hint: put a plant there!)
