The living room is often the room we spend most time, so it is important to create a space where
you really want to be – alone as well as with guests and family.
We recommend to pick one accent color - mustard, emerald green, blush pink, petrol blue or similar- that you choose for the sofa or rug, and then add up this color at least three times in the room. It can be with pillows, art or even flowers. Balance this with more subtle hues; grey, greige, beige and hues of white. The second thing to consider is how we choose to place our furniture.

SIZE & PLACEMENT
The size of the carpet in relation to the sofa is the most important thing to get right. You need space on each side of the sofa to create a balanced room, at least 20 cm but aim for 40 cm as small space makes the room look crowded.
You can choose to put all the furniture on the carpet, and if you have space that is a great recommendation. Then the size 300x400 cm is ideal, or 250x350 cm if you have the smallest size of sofa. If you prefer to place the sofa and sofa table on the carpet, and keep other pieces of furniture aside, the size of 250x350 cm, or 200x320 cm is preferable. A third and lovely styling is to pair two sofas and put the opposite of each other.
