THE SOFA COVER FOR A NEW LIVING ROOM WITHOUT CHANGING EVERYTHING
The sofa is the centerpiece of the living room. Generally, this piece of furniture is an investment that we intend to recoup over several years. So, you don’t change the sofa like your shirt and even if your decorative tastes change, the sofa stays. And to make it more suited to your needs without changing, you have the sofa cover. It has different advantages:
- A decorative advantage: It allows you to change the look of your sofa (with great ease)
- A financial advantage: It costs less than changing your furniture
- A daily advantage: It protects your sofa and it washes easily (little thought for parents who have young children)
There are many models of covers for the sofa. The quilted cover for an idea of comfort. A cover with tassels for a feminine sofa. The linen cover for a natural wink. We can also pay special attention to the color or patterns of the cover. In the living room, it’s not the only cover that is easy to change. We can also think of the armchair cover or the cushion cover.
LESS BUT BETTER FOR WALL DECORATION
For the second slow idea in the living room, we move on to the wall decor. There are very busy decor atmospheres like the bohemian decor. And then there is minimalism which, on the contrary, is more refined. The slow is in between. You can afford to decorate the wall, the main thing is that it is your image. Rather than reproducing a decorative style found on the net without necessarily appropriating it, there, we will wonder why? How? ‘Or’ What? We make sense of it. We take care to choose the photos that we frame. We take the time to find the right setting…
UPCYCLING AND DIY TO TAKE CARE OF THE DECOR DETAILS OF YOUR LIVING ROOM
There is a link between slow and ecology, it is undeniable. And in the living room, this link can take different forms. We recover, we transform, we do it ourselves…
- We opt for a reclaimed coffee table
- The crates to highlight your decor are still relevant!
- We personalize our existing furniture by changing the door handles or the furniture legs, by painting
- We ask a seamstress near you to make cushion covers or curtains (or we make them)
- We choose an ecological/organic paint or a wallpaper
NOBLE AND ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS FOR YOUR NEXT PURCHASES
As we wrote above, the idea of slow is not to buy, buy, buy to stick to an ideal. It is to buy when it is necessary. It is buying with a conscience. It is also buying less but better. Rather than buying an agglomerated TV stand, we will prefer a more noble material such as wood. For textiles, we will move towards natural and/or locally made textiles. The lights can also be slow and eco-friendly. Glass, rattan, wicker, linen… are materials that can take place in the living room. What is interesting when we carefully choose the materials that make up our interior is that they become an integral part of our decor. They are self-sufficient and we do not need to make tons!
PLANTS TO NATURALLY DECORATE THE LIVING ROOM
Finally, the last decorative idea for a slow show: plants. They are always as trendy and they always have their place in the living room. It is a lively decor that will bring color to your interior. What is interesting is that they have their place in all styles of decoration. It is a safe and timeless value.
And we don’t forget to regularly unclutter the living room. Creating a refined decoration also involves giving value to the objects around us and keeping what is essential. A less but better interior. We truly hope these few ideas will help you create a slower living room decor.
