Creating spaces that are full of style, but are also comfortable, can be a challenge for designers. If your home has kids and pets, that makes it doubly difficult. So what if you want style and design, but you want your family to feel at home and like they can relax and really put their feet up?
That’s a dilemma, right? Should you choose comfort over style, or style over comfort? Neither! In the video below, I gave my client the best of both worlds with fabulous color and overall comfort. Let’s take a look at how you can do that, too:
Who wouldn’t want to hang out in that family room? Let’s recap those tips for combining comfort and style:
1. Use warm colors like a rich red to create warmth and comfort, and trendy colors like turquoise to give you high style.
2. Tie it all together with a fabric or pattern that has both colors.
3. Lighting is essential to creating a comfortable space. Natural light and overhead lighting are great but a lamp with a dimmer switch will adjust to whatever you need for your comfort!
4. If you must have a TV (and let’s be honest, most of us must!), incorporate it into the design so it feels like a part of your comfortable and stylish space.
