For this edition of Embrace the Space, we’re exploring living room style for any home. Whether you’re camped in front of the TV for a Netflix session with the family or entertaining guests, this room is central for lounging and conversation.
First and foremost, we suggest choosing the heart of the room, the sofa. From kicking back after a long day to cuddling with a loved one, choose a piece that’s comfortable yet stylish. Love the classic and cozy look? The Gabby Helena sofa features a warm light color and a slew of sumptuous pillows and padding for ultimate relaxation. Crave a sleek, tailored look? A tufted piece like the Arteriors Marley Settee makes the grade. Need more elbow room? Try a sectional (example here!) or an extra long seat with ample space to stretch out.
For the rest of the room, an accent chair provides much-needed extra seating and can be a bold pop of personality. We’re having major *heart eyes* over the Gabby Weston chair with its outline of nailhead trim and slew of color choices. The tailored look brings in a sense of modernity, while padding makes for a cozy nook to curl up and read a good book.
Next up, tables. Whether sleek and modern or cool coastal, a side piece and coffee table combines function with design to tie a room together. The Gabby Annie side table is gorgeous with a distressed, beachy feel and a striking silhouette. For a dramatic look that’s sure to be the main topic of conversation, the Worlds Away Newman Coffee Table feels global and unique. Don’t forget the table lamp for illumination and you’re all set!
Last, add accessories to your living room for the finishing, customized touch. This is your chance to have fun with the style for a look that’s true to you! Love to travel? The Worlds Away Pyramids in clear accentuates spaces with worldly appeal.
In 2018, more is MORE. Gone are the days of choosing between styles for your space–now you can do it ALL. The ornate trend is taking over, swinging the interior design pendulum from the minimalist trend of the past to doing things to the MAX. What we love about this trend is how anti-trend it is–it’s funky, eclectic, and yet so chic. When you bring ornate looks into the home, you also bring out your own unique sense of style by fusing unexpected looks together. There are no rules–just more, more, MORE!
Looking to bring more ornate pieces into your home? It’s effortless! Start simple by choosing a piece in a neutral hue with bold texture, such as the Currey & Company Marchmont Sideboard. Its luxurious white shell medallion design and coral handles can’t help but draw the eye in. Pair it with a vibrant rug and colorful decor accents to balance its oceanic aesthetic.
To give your home instant glamor, a gorgeous light fixture can immediately shift a space from casual to extravagant. We love the gorgeous, vintage Directoire-style of the Eloquence Fontaine chandelier. Its strands of glass crystals are sure to illuminate any room with its unique shimmering effect. Ornate, much? Complement this lighting with elegant wall pieces, such as the Surya Sunburst wall mirror to open up the space!

It’s where the best dinner conversations happen. It’s where everyone comes together for holidays and parties. It’s where every host with the most truly shines. Yep, you guessed it–we’re talking about the dining room! In this edition of Embrace the Space, we’ll help create the perfect mood to make your dining room the go-to destination for gatherings with family and friends.
First things first: the dining table! The most important piece in this space, the dining table serves as the anchor for everything around it. A classic style is always the way to go because it can be dressed up or down easily to accommodate the mood. We love how the Eloquence Thoreau dining table‘s classic shape is elevated with vintage European detailing, yet feels approachable with a subtly distressed Danish white finish.
Now that you’ve carefully chosen the anchor of your space, it’s time to set the table with gorgeous seating and lighting. These elements can add so much character to a dining room, so go big! A classic table can be paired with bold, mod lighting, like the Currey & Company Hove Chandelier–its sweeping wrought iron arms bring a cool, industrial vibe that enriches the wood of a dining table. For seating, we love going with pieces like the Alistair Selene Dark Moon dining chair–it has a unique, curvy shape that’s all its own and treats guests to cool, sumptuous color and texture.
You’re almost done–all you need to complete your space are the last few decorative details! A fresh rug can always bring that last bit of oomph to a dining room. We love patterned rugs like the Surya Contempo rug that shows an eclectic mix of prints in simple, neutral tones. Add a couple of extra pieces to hang on the wall or set on the table–like the Arteriors Olympia Oval Mirror and a table piece like the Bliss Studio Boulangerie Etagere–and you’re done!

First, let’s create a cozy space for relaxing, hiding from the cold, and warming your hands by the fire (with hot chocolate in hand, of course). The living room is the perfect place to start. Choose a couch that exudes warmth from the color to the fabric. The Moss Studio Abbey sofa features a sumptuous velvet in a warm shade of gray, the perfect combination for lounging.

Rolled arms and a tufted back give this piece a unique look that feels classic and cozy in the same moment.
