5 ideas for decorating a cozy living room

Summer is the season to refresh and renew your home! After a long period spent at home, it's time to diversify the space with new details and accents to give a different look to the place where you live. Most of us do most of the activities in the living room - working, training, reading, watching movies. Here are 5 really good tips on how to revive it and make it even cozier:

1. Balance the colors

One of the most important aspects in the design of the living room is to combine the nuances of the furniture with the other elements. Accessories play a key role - pillows, decoration items such as frames or candles and ceiling lighting, creating volume and structure in the living room. If it is in neutral colors, for example, choose beige pillows that match the photo frames or chandelier, and let the sofa match the curtains.

2. Choose a room accent

A neutral living room with a white sofa and white curtains can seem too simplistic - without something that immediately catches the eye. The Moroccan rug would be a perfect addition to the living room. Create "intriguing" elements that are the focus of the room, but without being too intrusive.

3. Install the mirrors

Mirrors are always a great addition because of their ability to create the illusion of more space and bring in more natural light. Round mirrors, which are an interesting decoration, are becoming more and more popular.

4. Bet on natural materials

Wooden accents are back in fashion this season, with rattan being the star trend right now and bringing warm energy to any room. In the all-white living room, choose some wooden elements to create depth - such as a coffee table, chandeliers and wall ornaments.

5. Put aromatic plants

Bring nature inside by decorating with plants. Choose different types and be creative with flower pots! Plants in the home have the ability to calm and help you concentrate.
