How to make the living room less boring


Changing pillows, adding a wall light or a luxurious blanket for the sofa… are the things you should do to bring a new look to the living room.

Interior designer Jade Joyner, founder of an interior design company in the US, shares 8 steps to turn living rooms into luxury.

Replace pillow

According to Joyner, an easy way to change the design of a living room is to match the pillow to the sofa. “Combine velvet and linen, or silk with animal and plant motifs, or embroideries to give the sofa something new,” says Joyner.

She also recommends collecting pillows from your favorite shops to create your own style.

Blanket for sofa

Swap old blankets for a new sofa with a color or pattern that matches the space. The sofa may not be expensive, but a blanket will help upgrade the look. “Think fleece or linen materials,” she says.

Replace floor lamps with wall lamps

To give the living room a little extra flair, consider changing up the lighting. Joyner used a sconce because it brings interest to the room, especially in the bedroom because it will provide a space to read a book.

Replace LED light

Make your home more eco-friendly by replacing all light bulbs with LEDs. The light from LEDs is softer and more beautiful, and at the same time saves energy. “I wanted my living room to look clean, not yellow, so I used LED lights,” says Joyer.

Art picture

Replace paintings that can be purchased anywhere with real works of art. If you don’t have enough money, you can start with works by your favorite local artists, gradually upgrading to a collection over time.

Bringing plants into the house

Although artificial plants and flowers can save money, as well as take no time to care for,
But only real trees and flowers can upgrade your living space and your whole life. “Living plants are the key to any beautiful room. They clean the air and draw people’s attention,” says Joyner.

Paste the wall instead of a plain painted wall

“Although I like a pretty paint color, wallpaper can transform a space. Special types of paper can add warmth to a living room,” says Joyner.

There are different options, but Joyner recommends using printed wallpaper or grasscloth wallpaper.

Change the layout of the living room

Change the layout each season to always feel fresh. For example, you can move the sofa to face the fireplace in the winter and face the window in the summer.

Joyner also suggests arranging furniture and adjusting sofas before guests arrive. “I touch each piece of furniture before guests arrive to give the room a new feel,” she says.
