Easy Ways to Change the Ambience of Your Living Room

Hi everyone, 


For all of us, our homes are important places. They are where we spend most of our time, so you want everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy being there. Creating the right ambience is key to making sure that this is the case. The way you decorate your home has a big impact on how welcoming it feels. It is particularly important to get the look and feel of your living room right. This is because that is the place you are likely to spend the most time as a family.
The right wall art

What you put on your wall has a big impact on how a space feels. By using some canvas prints you can give your living room a fresh new look. The fact that you can potentially have any image turned into prints to put on your walls makes it easy to create the ambience you really want.

Use the right materials to create the vibe you want
The materials you makes a big difference to the overall look you achieve. I used a lot of wood when I made over my living room a few years ago. This had the effect of giving the room a more natural feel, which is what I was after.
The right colours and textures

Understanding the impact certain colours have on the way you feel is an important skill that is worth learning. It will stand you in good stead when you redecorate. Choosing the right colour palette is important. For example, if you are after a minimalist look you would use mainly light or neutral colours.
You should also look at the way you use texture. Choosing the right fabrics and finishes can have a big impact. If you are after a natural look and feel, try using fabrics like Jute and linen. They look fantastic and on a subconscious level, most people associate these materials with nature. They know they are made from natural materials, so quickly make the connection and pick up on the vibe you are trying to create.


Create the right type of focal point
Every living room should have a focal point. If you are trying to create a cosy, warm ambience make your fireplace the point of focus. Nothing says cosy like a roaring fire. Whereas, if you are after an edgier feel making the TV the focal point could be the way to go. For a chill out or den style living room, a large ornament of say Buddha or someone in a yoga pose could work as the statement piece. There are lots of options, you just need to be creative and not be afraid to experiment. You can easily pick up items like ornaments from charity shops. Once you get them home, just spray them white and see how they look. If you like the overall effect you can then go out and buy something more suitable.
