Are you looking for a nice and elegant home, but don’t feel like spending all your savings on the decoration? In this topic, you will find the best tricks to give your home a magazine look without having to shell out a million dollars. Are you ready?
WOOD AND FIBERS MUST ALWAYS BE PRESENT
The modern houses can also be elegant, and much! However, there are certain guidelines that you should follow. We start with the use of wood and natural fibers, both materials should always be present. Wood is a noble material that provides a lot of presence while generating warmth, and natural fibers help to relax the decoration. The latter, in elements such as the ceiling lamp, a basket, or a pouf, will elevate the elegance of your living room in a very natural way, avoiding a too sober look. The key, as in everything, is to find balance.
DECORATE WITH AN ICONIC PIECE OF DESIGN
If you want to add an extra dose of style and elegance to your decoration without investing a lot of money, get yourself an iconic piece of design. It does not have to be the original model (which would cost its own), you can look for chairs inspired, for example, by the classic 811 Ton design (the ones you see in the image), to accompany the dining room table.
FOCUS ON A COLOR GAMUT
Visual harmony is the great ally of elegance, space where colors fit naturally is key to achieving your goal. That does not mean that the room is going to be bland, you can play with the intensity of the tones and add various textures and patterns. Also, take into account the time of year: during spring and summer the color palettes are cooler and lighter, and in autumn and winter they become darker.
GLASS TABLES, AS ELEGANT AS THEY ARE LIGHT
Glass tables, due to their visual lightness and fragility, are great for designing more elegant rooms. Not only that, but they also make spaces appear more spacious and light. Remember to add a nice bouquet in a cute vase and other decorative elements such as candles, books, or a tray.
TAKE CARE OF THE DIMENSIONS OF THE FURNITURE
One of the enemies of elegance is the lack of harmony in the dimensions of the furniture. Imagine a tiny living room with a coffee table that takes all the space in front of it. What horror, right? Like it or not, the square meters are what they are and, unless we do work to pull partitions, we must adapt to them. It is also essential to pay attention to the height of the ceiling: low furniture and the absence of contrast between the color of the ceiling and the walls will help you to visually lengthen it.
PLACE FLOWERS AND PLANTS AT STRATEGIC POINTS
An elegant house requires, yes or yes, the presence of beautiful indoor plants and lush flowers. We are not saying that you have to turn the living room into a botanical garden, at all, it is about using them with ingenuity to highlight those dead spots in the corners, and to give life, for example, to a coffee table or a nightstand with a nice bouquet. To reinforce elegance, it is also essential that you pay attention to the height of the plants. If the ceilings are very low or the room is very small, and XL plant is not the best option, however, it will be ideal in a spacious living room with lots of natural light.
