YOUR HOME IS your happy place, but how can you make your living room more visually appealing? Sam Cook offers her expert advice.
Living rooms often lack colour. Should we bring more brightness into our entertaining areas?
To often people select neutral-tone furniture and paint the walls white. [They] are
then surprised to feel nothing when entering the room. Colour and light are what gives feeling to a room; don’t be afraid to use it and enjoy it.
How can you maximise space in a smaller living room?
Be smart when selecting furniture. People often try to squeeze too much into the
room. If you’re finding it difficult to fit in all of your favourite books and DVDs, there are many fantastic storage solutions to help avoid clutter.
What is the biggest mistake people make when putting their house on the market?
Preparing your house for sale is a tricky business and most agents are focused on getting the home on the market as quickly as possible. People often fail to declutter and depersonalise. A professional stylist can add thousands to the final sale price, and the service is not as expensive as you may think. Sessions start from $250 for two hours.
