How to Decorate: Creating a peaceful and polished seating area

 

1. Anchor the space with a rug.

The rug here not only defines this seating area and establishes the color palette, it warms up the space visually and feels divine under foot.

2. In art, scale is everything.

Because of size, this seascape mimics a large window looking out on an ocean view. (With ten times the impact that a small painting would have in its place.) 

3. The name of the game is symmetry.

A pair of chairs flanking a fireplace –or a window – is a foolproof recipe for a calm and inviting vignette.

4. Accessories are fun!

With scale and symmetry so well represented in this space, the accessories don’t have to do much except personalize the space. So layer in a a few blooms, photos, or a cozy throw – whatever pretty and meaningful things will make you feel most at home.
