Since the before post, we had the fireplace installed and the drywall hung, taped, and plastered. We (I) did the priming and painting ourselves to save a little bit of money. Somehow the room grew in size even though we bumped out 21″ from the wall. I guess that's what happens when you draw the eye up and wide. Let's talk about storage for a second. Because we have a tiny 3-yr-old that has toys spilling out her nose. Someone asked why we went for non-functioning wood as opposed to cabinets below the benches. It's a really good question. This may sound crazy, but I didn't want to add anymore storage. Because when you have more storage, you fill it. And just a couple steps away, we have plenty of storage for her toys in the dining room (reveal coming soon). A couple steps more, and she can get to the rest in the office. There's one hidden spot of toys in the living room though. Underneath that side table is a basket of legos. That's it.
Add the Flicker of a Flame, To continue with the lighting theme, don't underestimate the importance of a flame when it comes to creating a cozy space. The flicker of a flame is mesmerizing and relaxing. If you have a fireplace, building a fire is a great way to generate warmth and creating a relaxing environment, but even if you don't, candles can help transform the mood of any room with their soft glow, and many offer an enticing fragrance to complement the decor throughout your interior. Also, try using candles of various sizes to create dimension, as well as finding candle holders that fit the theme of the room. Make Use of Wall Space, A blank wall is a wasted opportunity. Try to fill dead wall space rather than letting it go bare. Group art, photographs, or other items make a great display on an accent wall. Bare walls can make space feel empty, but a wall with a few pictures or prints can add character and make a room feel cozier.
