Less is usually more when it comes to dashes of color so as not to overdo it.


5. A touch of texture:

Just like adding bright colors into your décor, don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures as a design element to create depth and interest to your rooms. If you are using sleek and smooth furnishing it helps to give a modern and contemporary look to your home but along with that if you play with the texture it helps to add that unique feature to your home. These textured furnishings help to add a cozier and comfortable feel to your home and at the same time maintaining the stylish and sophisticated look of the room.


6. Roll out a rug:

Sometimes different flooring materials in your home like ceramic tiles or marble can feel cold and uncomfortable in the underfoot, particularly on rainy and cool winter days.  In this situation, you throw a rug over the floor which will add that extra sense of warmth and comfort to your home. Rugs can take up plenty of visual space, so choose your rugs carefully. Colorful rugs add punch to neutral settings.


7. Get cozy with some throws:

If you want instant glamour in your home, there is nothing better than adding a thick throw to add volume to the furniture. Drape the throw over a sofa or armchair to layer on some luxe. This can be paired well with furniture which is upholstered in fabric or leather. But be very careful in choosing the colors and try to avoid the colors that contrast against your furniture. You can instead opt for those colors which go well with your contemporary look.


8. Hang up some bright and cheerful curtains:

When you add the curtains it is not just a feature of privacy but also style and elegance. The drapes can add some extra depth and dimension to the room. You can choose from different types of fabrics and each type of fabric can affect how the room looks and feels. You can also consider different patterns to add some character to the living room.


a. Pleated floor length curtains:

If you have an overstuffed couch or dark wood furniture, going for curtains which are breezy gives an airy and sheer look to the place. In this scenario, light chiffon panels do the trick when hung from a decorative rod in the living room.


b. Bordered damask and accordion style folds:

If a wall has only one window and a full sheet of the curtain can make a bold statement and add that style to the room. The geometric border around this damask print creates an interesting dynamic between a modern and classic style that the unconventional fold draping enhances.


c. Big and bold stripes from ceiling to the floor:

In case you have a living room with a long wall and plenty of windows you can play with these dimensions by adding stripes with alternating colors. Keep the colors neutral so you aren’t sacrificing the perception of size in your living room and make sure to hang them high.


d. Color blocking with neutrals and whites:

Pops of bright color can be easier to pull off in an otherwise neutral, monochrome room design when they’re kept to a minimum and repeated through a few key pieces. You can choose thinner panels which are more toned down which lets you get away with the bold and bright color which doesn’t take away from the rest of the living room.


Thus, there are many different ways in which you can use soft furnishings for your room and they also come with their own set of advantages.

Such as:

  • It adds beauty to your already existing furniture and keeps the room feeling more modern and stylish.
  • It makes it easy for you to sit back and relax in the comfort of your home with a soft feel.
  • It gives a total makeover to your room, allowing you to showcase your artistic talent and abilities in one of the most budget-friendly ways.
  • It acts as the best solution to add the required contrast and color combination in your rooms so that it looks great and soothing as far as appearance is considered.

Thus, soft furnishing not only helps to enhance the quality of your rooms and the furniture but also adds value making your living experience more relaxing and comfortable.
