Your living room is an important place for lounging and entertaining your guests at home. Many peoplechoose comfy furniture for their grand room with cozy fireplaces and plush furniture included in their decor. Check out these tips for creating a stylish living room where your guests will feel at home.
It's important for your living room to be comfortable for everyone. According toA Pretty Fix, “accents, such as comfy pillows, are inexpensive, and they add back support to chairs and chaises. Changing the color of throw pillows provides an instant makeover for your living room.”
Think of your color scheme and grab a few spare pillows when you know you'll be having extra company. These are great for guests young and old and can make even the oldest furniture feel comfortable. Don't forget to add some throws that'll keep you warm and cozy when you're watching movies.
Aromatherapy can induce relaxation at home. Your guests can benefit from scents of flowers and essential oils to liven the environment. Scented candles will need to be placed strategically so that they're out of reach of children and will distribute fragrances evenly throughout the room. According toAmara, “sweet scents aren’t for everyone, but in the living room these fragrances will create a refreshed and comfortable atmosphere. For smaller living rooms look to vanilla and honey based fragrances across scented candles. Larger rooms can manage sweeter scents, look to caramel, macaroon, and icing sugar fragrance notes across fragrance diffusers to ensure the scent is gently filling the room.”
According todoTERRA, “essential oils have the added benefit that certain scents can help clear feelings of unease and sadness.” If you or your guests are going through a difficult time, try using zesty scents like bergamot, sweet orange, or lemon to lift everyone's mood. Welcoming scents, like vanilla or apple and cinnamon, invite guests to feel at home.
