The living room is a place where you spend quality time with your family. You spend most of your spare time in your living area watching television or conversing with your loved ones. It’s the place where you create memories with your close friends over sports games or movies.
Essentially, it’s perhaps the most comfortable place to chill out and relax after a long day.
So it goes without saying that it should be well-designed. Your living area should not only make you and your guests feel comfortable and cosy, but also luxurious at the same time.
If you agree with everything so far, you must go gold!
Did you know that gold is the colour of happiness, wealth and warmth? This sunny yellow shade feels both cheerful and welcoming to your guests. It beautifies your space and makes it bursting with character.
Here are the five ways to enhance the appearance of your living room with the Midas touch:
1. Light Up Your Style
Infuse your showcase and corners with brightness and warmth with showcase lights. Highlight your memories and art pieces using these catchy LED lights. It will look impressive to your guests and they might just end up copying this interior design idea when they leave.
Choose an elegant chandelier or pendant lights for your dinner table to add a bit of whimsy to your space. You could buy a lightweight, metallic one with a touch of gold on the top, as shown in the picture above. It will lend your dining room, living room, or bedroom a cosy feel.
2. Gold Furnishings And Fabrics
Flip through interior design magazines these days and you will know that gold furniture and fabrics are hot right now.
To pull off this look without making your home appear tacky, swap out your pillows, rugs, linens, and curtains with ones that have golden accents. Pair your couch with a golden-accented table or side tables.
If you think that’s too much gold, throw in a few small pillows on the couch that feature swirls of glittery gold on them. Big or small, your house should feel a little bit glamorous now. You can thank us for that!
3. Modernise With Gold Hardware
Brass is trending again. But it’s not those shiny brass fixtures of yesteryear. Rather, the new-age brass is a little more matte, having a much more contemporary style and look. Look to the fan in the image above – the golden blades of the fan add sophistication and brightness to an otherwise ordinary ceiling.
Similarly, you can use brass hardware, accessories and fixtures to add sheen to your home interior without being too flashy.
4. Quirky Golden Walls
Break the monotony on neutral-coloured walls, and experiment with gold on your walls. Lend a touch of glam and quirkiness to your walls at home with some golden strips or show your retro love with golden polka dots.
In the image above, the TV wall has a textured square golden that creates a central point in the living area. Alternatively, you can choose some gold-rimmed frames and hang them up on the walls.
5. Take It To The Table
Bring the happy energy of gold on your table with golden settings, gold runners, gold napkins and good china, perhaps rimmed in gold as well, if you’re feeling extra rich.
To avoid things being too golden, use real flowers of red or green hues, paired with a neutral-coloured table spread.
When it comes to adding gold hints to your living room interior, the power is in the right placement.
Don’t overdo it! Place gold touches thoughtfully throughout the room to achieve a sleek and subtle glamour your house deserves.
