Debonair Decor: 5 Tips For a More Sophisticated Living Space


Whether you are revamping your existing living space or you have just moved into a new home, it’s important that you take the right approach to your interior design. If you have dreamed of creating a design that screams elegance and sophistication, now is your chance to achieve those design goals. With some careful consideration, you can transform your living space into a sleek stylish space that you can be proud of.

Designing a more sophisticated living space can be as expensive or affordable as your budget will allow. From adding simple soft furnishings to elegant touches like leather lounges or hanging carefully chosen art pieces, there is so much that you can do to add a sense of style and sophistication to your living area. With just a few carefully selected design choices, you can finally bring your lavish interior design dreams from vision to reality.

Let’s take a look at five simple and straightforward tips to bring your décor from drab to debonair.

Declutter Your Space

Before you start redesigning your space you need to declutter. A sophisticated living should have a zen-like quality to it which is all but impossible to achieve if your belongings are scattered everywhere. Donate or sell anything that you don’t use regularly and choose some sleek, stylish storage solutions to keep your belongings organised, neat, and tidy for a more refined-looking living area.

Add Some Throw Pillows

Adding some carefully selected throw pillows is a fantastic way to bring some colour and texture to your space. Choose pillows that will accentuate your furniture and brighten up the space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours, patterns and fabrics to create a layered, textured finish. The key here is not to find the right balance as including throw pillows in the right way will look elegant but too much may look overly busy.

Play With Lighting

Using different lighting sources is a sure-fire way to add a touch of class to your living space. Placing lamps in different areas of your space can help to create an inviting and welcoming ambience that you, your family and your guests will enjoy. Well-appointed light fixtures and carefully chosen lampshades will help to create the right atmosphere and vibe in your newly-designed living space.

Hang Art You Love

To bring a real air of grandeur to your living area, be sure to hang some art that you connect with and enjoy. Many home décor and furniture stores have a range of prints and frames to choose from. There is also a huge selection of prints and paintings online for all tastes, styles and budgets. Remember that where you position your pieces is important so take some time to find the right locations where they will add to the overall design and feel of the room.

Bring The Outside In

Whether you simply add a bunch of fresh flowers, or you feature a selection of indoor plants, adding a touch of greenery will bring some life to your space. How you display your plants definitely matters. There are some stunning wall hanging options that you can consider and simple wicker baskets can work great for floor plants. Choose plants that are easy to look after and place them where they will get the right amount of air and light. Bringing a little of the outdoors in will help to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere in your newly designed space.

Create An Elegant And Stylish Living Space You Can Be Proud Of

Ultimately, the space that you create and the style that you decide on should reflect your unique style, tastes and personality. Planning your design in advance will allow you to iron out any potential issues early on and make the right decisions for your design going forward. With the right plan in place, you can start the exciting task of turning your design ideas into a stylish, elegant living space that you can be proud of.
