This expert guide will ensure a gorgeous living room with high-end decor on a budget!
1. Consider One Accent Piece – a Womb Chair
As you can’t update the whole furniture being on a budget, go for a much-needed accent chair, like a statement worthy Womb Chair. Not only does this vibrant green-yellow Womb Chair replica add gentle accents to the entire space, it also beautifully brightens it up.
This piece designed by mid century mastermind Eero Saarinen brings a designer touch, elevating the look. This sculptural, enveloping, organic beauty immediately catches your eye, while adding a tad of glamour.
2. Rearrange Furnishings
For the least pricey update of all, repurpose what you’ve already got. A new arrangement of furniture will work wonders in updating your space’s functionality and look. Instead of the same old boring traditional layout, try moving your furnishings away from the wall.
That would make the living room look huge! You may also bring even more chairs for a more conversational ambience. Even tiny tweaks make a huge difference!
3. Declutter, Declutter, Declutter
Believe it or not, getting rid of clutter and using your storage to bring personality will ultimately transform a room. If you do not already have the perfect living space storage, take advantage of your bookshelves or open shelving.
These can perfectly be used to further update the living space. Swap regularly what is kept on them, add photos, art pieces, plants, magazines and books to come up with a new focus.
4. Go for Eye Catching Vignettes
Consider this easy update without spending a dollar. Just round up similarly colored decor pieces to create a lovely vignette on your console or coffee table. By grouping similar decor pieces all together, you make them look like an attention grabbing collection.
This yields such a design impact! This neutral colored vignette featuring gold pieces makes a bold statement in this mid century living room.
5. Create Your Own Colorful Gallery Wall
Make a colorful splash with a striking gallery wall art. Since art pierces are incredibly expensive and you need a budget friendly solution, consider coming up with your own gallery wall. This cheap and quick solution will instantly brighten up your wall!
You may go either for bold prints or or ones with subdued hues. In this eclectic living room, a mix of abstract prints in a range of blue hues creates this impressive gallery wall.
6. Consider Small Greenery
Plants are a great way to add to your design arsenal. They bring shape, color and life to a room. Luckily, there are a myriad of places you can pick up top quality, inexpensive foliage. Want to fill your room with greenery?
Since big houseplants are still pricey, arrange groups of tiny house plants at different heights all over the living room. This way, you’ll create the illusion of the living room being filled with plants! Houseplants add life to your living room decor… Literally!
7. Light It UP
Believe it or not, something which does not cost much and may be updated quickly is lighting. If you do not want your living room to look like an extra bright operating theatre, consider table lamps or floor lamps at different heights.
You will instantly create cozy light pools that dramatically change the mood of the living space, simply by layering your lights. Bear in mind that the right lighting is essential to showing off a beautiful design.
8. Perfect Your Color Scheme
Don’t forget to narrow down your color palette. Take inventory of your entire living space, and try to determine exactly your three favorite shades, whether bold or light, then assemble. Simply by selecting a simpler, more perfect color scheme, the design is much more dynamic.
Right after you’ve assembled the living room, see if it needs a couple more accessories or decor pieces to further enhance your color scheme. Go shopping, yet remember to purchase only what you truly adore.
