“Everyone wants a fireplace in their living room but can’t always have it because they’re so expensive to install,” says Doreen Amico-Sorell of Sorell Interiors. “Enter: the faux fireplace. This is that design element that adds a lot to the room by creating a focal point—without breaking the bank. They can be dressed up with candles or firewood to set the desired scene, and constructed to fit any decor.”
2. White floor vases
All-white interiors might be out, but white floor vases like we see in this post from @staybycorisamuel certainly aren’t.
“White floor vases are the most flexible accessory that will enhance any decor,” Amico-Sorell says. “They can be grouped together or placed in various parts of the living room. They can be filled with botanicals or left empty for their artistic quality.”
3. Ultralow coffee table
Looking for a new coffee table that will work even in your cramped living room? Look no further than this ultralow and modern design featured by @homeaura.
“Ultralow coffee tables are meant to be used in a very modern aesthetic, and should be paired with lower-profile seating," Amico-Sorell says. "The advantage is that, due to their low, sleek lines, they work well in smaller-scale rooms.”
4. Stacks of coffee table books
Coffee table books aren’t just a great way to make your at-home time go by faster—they’re also an affordable decor item that will add even more bright color to your living space. The proof is in this post from @thehomepageuk.
“Designers love coffee table books, and there’s a reason,” says Amanda Amato-Scotto of AMA Designs & Interiors. “Books on a coffee table add height to accessories, and the secret technique to styling is to layer in varying heights and texture. A single accessory is lonely, but pop it on top of a book with another item? Now it's interesting.”
5. Pastel accents
“If you’re hesitant to experiment with bold color, pastels are a great way to introduce color,” says Amato-Scotto. “While pastels are still very vibrant, their neutrality is just enough to change the mood of your space without too much contrast.”
