1. Add a Dose of Color
All it took to give this room a summer makeover was a few splashes of color and creative furniture rearranging. If the sectional sofa is faced to the fireplace, by splitting the components into two facing sofas, guests can now focus on conversation instead of flickering flames. A new yellow and seafoam green color scheme brightens walls and accessories using clever and affordable tricks.
2. Rearrange the Living Room Furniture
Sectional seating is nothing if not flexible. Simply reconfiguring the pieces creates an entirely new look. Summer is full of visitors, so foster conversation by turning two sections to face each other. Add a table where guests can place drinks and snacks. Carpet tiles are a fun and practical alternative to an area rug. Different colors or motifs can be arranged and rearranged in creative designs. This cream and seafoam green checkered pattern adds a dose of color to the floor.
3. Add Custom Accents
Add color to the room with accents. Pillows and a throw boost the room’s color without being permanent. Making pillows is a snap when you use a patterned two-ply place mat as your fabric. Cut a slit along the top back of the mat and stuff with batting. Leave the top few inches empty. Fold over the top flap and secure it with a button and a ribbon tie.
4. Create a Reading Corner
The corner of the sectional sofa becomes a comfy reading spot by the window. Make this area a miniature version of the living room. Add artwork, a side table, a lamp, and accent pillows.
5. Add Fireplace Flair
With only the bump-out wall painted a fresh seafoam green, the fireplace becomes the room’s focal point. For a playful touch, a graphic from the tablecloth-turned-curtain is stenciled onto the wall. To add depth and function to the wall, add a mantel above the fireplace. This floating shelf is made of white-painted plywood. The floating shelf provides space for displaying pretty glass bottles.
6. Create a Cheery Corner
Turn a corner into a cozy eating area by pairing a bistro table and chairs with a leather ottoman “window seat.” Add colorful walls and bright accents that repeat the living room’s hues.
7. Use Two Colors
Add architectural interest to a room with “wainscoting.” Create a picture rail with store bought hook racks. Install sections of store-bought peg rails that come with the board and hooks. Paint different colors above and below the picture rail for a fresh look.
Now you don’t have an excuse to don’t decor your living room for this summer. It’s easy, follow this 7 steps and your living room set will be shouting summer all over the place.
