Freshen up Your Living Room with Greenery

Are you looking around your living room and thinking, “what can I do to help this room have a little more life?”  Well, look no further than out the window.  Bring a little of the outside in!

A decorative tree or green plant will instantly breathe a fresh new life to your living room.

Don’t have time to run to the floral shop before your guests arrive?  Cut some simple stems of leaves from the tree in the backyard and place them in an existing vase or container.  It can be done in seconds!

Do you have beautiful flowers in your yard?  Cut a few stems and enjoy them inside.  The loose look of “I-just-cut-these-and-threw-them-in-a-vase” type arrangement will totally work well.  Don’t be afraid!

So, grab a tree, some branches, or some flowers to help your living room ‘live’ a little more!

Michelle’s Picks

When you visit either of the Alice Lane showrooms, you will likely hear a designer or stylist use the phrase “it’s all in the details.”  It’s a motto we live by.

michelle's picks | alice lane home collection

Often, the details of our designs are best showcased when we surprise clients and visitors with unexpected placement of larger furniture pieces.  BookCASE in point—this brushed nickel beauty (Julia Chichester Bookshelf | $3762.50) guarding a timeless gray mohair chesterfield (Parker Sofa | Wesley Hall| $3338.50).

The unexpected placement of the bookshelf behind the sofa draws the eye to accessories and details featured in the room grouping.  In this case, the BIG BOYS allows the details to shine. (OPTIONAL final line:  It’s all of the details at their finest).

Take a Seat

Feeling bored with your living room? Here are 3 tips to freshen things up.

MIX UP THE SEATING Imagine the guests you entertain in your living room – whether it’s grandma who needs a firm chair or the kids who love an ottoman just their size. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone had a seat that was just right? Mix up the seating silhouettes and everyone will have a place they can feel at home.

PULL FURNITURE AWAY FROM THE WALLS Your living room doesn’t have to feel like a junior high dance with the chairs hanging out on one side and the sofa across the room on the other. Let everything mingle in the middle under the disco ball, er chandelier.

COZY UP THE CORNERS Don’t neglect the corners of your room. They need a little love too. Show off a pretty buffet or a spicy chair to liven up the room’s pulse.
