Furnishing a home to fit the aesthetic and lifestyle of your family may be harder than initially thought. As a home design company, we have done custom builds for a wide variety of households of various sizes and styles. Today, we’re bringing you some advice on how to make your living and dining rooms feel customized to your vision through perfect furnishings.
Luxurious or Comfortable?
Properly furnishing your living and dining areas is dependent mainly on the typical day for your family. If you’re the type of household that spends a lot of time together, keeping your furniture choices comfortable and relaxed will reflect that very well. A more structured and formal approach to furnishings can make a home feel transformed into a beautiful banquet and is perfect for families that host a lot of formal gatherings.
For our relaxed approach, we recommend pairing neutrals with a consistent pop of color throughout both spaces to add cohesiveness. For chairs, sofas, and loveseats, we believe going for a brown or black leather-esque finish will work wonders for holding up to spills and constant traffic.
When it comes to luxurious furnishing, we often lean into the use of monochromatic or grayscale palettes.
