A Living room is an epicenter for all family activities, and it acts as a multi-functional space for relaxing, working, mingling with guests, and entertain. There are tonnes of design and mood inspirations when it comes to making your living space vibrant and essential part of your lives. While decorating the lounge, one has to keep three things in mind:

a) having enough leg room by not making the space too crowded with furniture

b) having the perfect light setting by adding light fixtures and natural lighting

c) lastly make maximum use of the space by placing consoles in the walls, cozy window benches with storage space if you have a bay view, and corner tables. All of these add up to the vignette of the personal lounge.

Take a look at some of classic living room ideas to go with. When it comes to the seating arrangements in the living room the sofa is the most obvious and attractive choice to change the get up of the room. It is important to create a striking illusion with a super comfy one that does not take up too much space. An upholstered beauty made out of leather, velvets, soft fabric, or tweed is what you want. Fill the extra area with a few exquisite rotund chairs to create a conversational pod around the couch. For a smaller room sofa without arms are more appropriate to craft a movable space. To bring in a calming sophisticated vibe in the room add beautiful cushions with a bold colour palette of black, white and neutrals, pastels, prints, earthy tones, and metallic golds. Accentuating the space with an odd low table, floor cushion or ottoman makes it more functional. Enhance the decor with a mix of simple family knickknacks and grand statement features like a glamorous chandelier or a prodigious piece of art.

When I Play with Interiors – Bedroom Edition

I know Polyvore is meant for all-things fashion but my love for creating home sets does not seem to end. Designing quirky, stylish, modern, subtle, and vintage bedroom decors has been my favorite pass-time. In this post I will feature a few of my choicest bedroom interiors.

Subtle

A soothing calm to the room is attained by the subtle elegance of the interiors. The minimalist white and grey tones along with the fusion of indigo projects urban decadence.

Artsy

Having a huge wall painting in the bedroom adds dimension and depth to the room. Throw pillows accentuate a laid back yet voguish option to heavy furnishings.

Bedroom #14

In this my equestrian love is depicted with the horses in the backdrop of a very vintage setting. The night sky and wooden candle holder elude magic and seems ideal for a farm house bedroom decor.

Vintage

Imagine a beach house with such rustic white bedroom facing the sea, watching the waves crash on the shore from the comfort of warm blankets on a full moon night would be so romantic.

Fairy-Tale Embellishment on my Wall

unnamed

Have you ever imagined spending time with your loved one below a tree decorated with quaint lanterns, watching the bright pattern of stars draped in the dark shadows of the night sky with the faint illumination from the crescent moon? Sounds like right out of a story book or poetry isn’t it? Ah! well these small luxuries are unimaginable if you live in a concrete jungle, but me being a lover of all things poetic decided to embellish my wall space with a decorative wall sticker.

I searched various sites online for something that would take me back into a cozy space just by looking at it, after a wild and extensive quest I found the one that fitted the fancy of my mind. A fairy-tale like wall sticker on Pepperfry. I was instantly captivated by the design, the branches with tiny leaves, the cute little stars, the magical lanterns, and the enchanting crescent moon. One look at it and I could envision myself under the night-sky or a chilly Halloween night or having a warm meal on Christmas eve, it was just too perfect to fit in with any occasion and so I purchased it. Sheer Love-at-first-sight!

Me and my sister spent a nice warm afternoon adorning it on our living room wall giggling away like two school girls, and I noticed that it matched excellently with the dark blue sofa cushion covers below. Each day I can’t stop admiring the beauty on the wall.

ok

Wall-stickers can add a personal dimension to your room without being to expensive or calling in professional help for renovating your space.

Decorating your personal space is an exciting experience, it mirrors the way we take hours to dress up in order to feel attractive,chic, and presentable. Home is usually an extension of our personality, the way we ornate, furnish, and accessorize the abode depicts our creativity and style. I have been obsessed on Polyvore creating home decor sets inspired by my love for fashion. Let me mention a few ideas on how to create Voguish interiors from haute couture ramp designs.

Spring Inspiration

Spring gives a vibrant visual of bright pinks, rose reds, elegant whites, and soothing greens. A season that evokes new beginnings and ushers happiness, decorating your interiors in the colors of nature livens up your personal space. Intricate floral designs provide a fresh atmosphere and remind you of spring all year round.

Monocromatic Style

An eye-catching trend that has spilled over from the ramp into your bedrooms and living rooms. These designs look anything but mundane and brighten up the living space despite of the mono style.

Geometric Patterns

Bold and edgy on the fashion ramp geometric designs give an illusionist perception. This chic style adds a 3D dimensional look to the decor and provides a classic neo-modern look. Geometric furniture’s have a futuristic appeal and elongate the view of any given room.

Black and Gold

Dressing up your room in this royal and glamorous attire manifests  opulence. Rich textures, luxurious leather furnishings, elegant light fittings, and golden lace curtains display a palace life feel.

Color Pop

Mixing red with pink, blue with green, and yellow with orange is an eye-popping effect. If you are free-spirited or boho-chic you will love to dress up your house in the color pop theme. Crazy prints and hues from the 60s MOD fashion trend can be incorporated. Color pop is en vogue and adds just the right amount of razzmatazz to your decor.
