Aim for flexibility in lighting. Similar to dressing in multiple layers in winter, layering drapery panes over shades for maximum light adjustment in your living room will make it more pleasant to use at different times of the day and year, as well as for various activities. Drapes also visually soften the hard-edged appearance of Venetian blinds while adding style. This living room, for example, would look a bit bland without the light blue drapery. Wrap yourself up. A cozy throw is perhaps the easiest and cheapest living room addition. It'll get loads of use in the winter, and even in the summer by guests who may not fully appreciate your AC setting.

White just gives furniture a contemporary personality, I think. A fresh youthful spirit.” To strike the right color balance in the home's formal dining room, Mele had the dining chairs bleached white from the original brown. Strike a Color-and-Pattern Compromise, When dialing up the pattern, it's sometimes best to dial down the color to achieve a calmer, less chaotic effect. When designing the home's master bedroom, Mele started with a bold, Matisse-esque pattern and made his color choices, or lack thereof, from there. “I just wanted to use that pattern everywhere and not break it up with different colors or patterns,” he says. To that end he refrained from introducing any of the vibrant colors he used on the home's ground floor. “I wanted it to feel a little calmer, quieter, even though it's not a calm, quiet fabric.
