When it comes to interior design, more and more consultants aim to go completely with the customers’ individual needs and wishes and try to figure out their personal style and way of living. Whether you feel comfortable inside of your own four walls doesn't depend on whether you follow current living trends or not, but rather on your personality, on your preferences and characteristics.
If you are a creative and open-minded person with an affinity to challenges, you will be open to all kinds of interesting suggestions to spice up your living room. You might be someone who prefers being surrounded by clean and fresh shapes and colours, and a contemporary corner sofa in beige with a light metal frame, for example, might then be ideal for you. (The sectional in the header photo is exactly what we were going to get for our condo which we never lived in - it took so long to build that we wound up in the UK before it was completed!) Or rather than bright and light coloured furniture, you prefer darks such as brown and black, and heavy and bulky shapes that look cool and tough, like the Canonbury armchair.
As we all know, colours have a very strong influence on our mood. If you want your house to cheer you up, it's probably best to include some colourful cushions or a nice blanket: green gives you hope and blue provides a calm feeling (which is probably why I surround myself with it!). Another possibility is to integrate one or two comfy bean bags, whether red, yellow or blue. Just trust your intuition. For most of us, fresh colours and stark contrasts in our living room make us feel happy and easy-going. The bean bags you can order online here.
Bean bags are also fantastic for your outside space. These versions are made of a special fabric that is water resistant, so beanbags might be the perfect choice for you if you plan to spend a lot of time in your garden this summer - and I certainly do!
