Sometimes it can seem like you need lots of money to create an intriguing space in your home, but this just isn’t the case. There are some cheap and cheerful ways you can create intimacy, play with light, and add some drama.
Create intimacy in a living room by pushing your furniture away from the walls. It’s a failsafe move in most houses to push our sofas and seating right up against the wall. We’re usually left with a lot of dead space in the middle of the room and not much sense of intimacy. Push your seating away from the walls to create a more intimate space for relaxing and chatting. Alternatively, try playing with the light in a room by propping large mirrors up against the wall rather than hanging them. Not only does this bounce more light around the room, but it also looks very stylish. Finally, add some drama to your dining room. Hang three lights, equally spaced, above the dining room table. Hang them low-down, just like you see in restaurants. This will create a great atmosphere.
