Who doesn’t like changes? A makeover is very important to infuse a breath of fresh air and bring in energy in the habitual environment. With time, our house too needs to be renovated, refurbished and re-ordered so that one falls in love with the dwelling all over again. Here are some living room makeovers which changed the overall feel of the house drastically and aesthetically:
From drab to crisp- Makeover which entices
Before: There is a dearth of colour play in the living room and hence it looks drab and unappealing. It’s time to treat the plain walls like a blank canvas and let the creative juices feel.
After: The ceiling medallions give a super-stylish wall treatment to our plain Jane living room. The adhesive caulk facilitates the wall art process. And the Belgian-linen slip cover injects a soft dose of color to an otherwise white appearance of the sofa. Subtle yet classy!
2. From bland to bold- Makeover which stands out
Before: With no window treatments and bland furnishings, the living room looks lifeless. The plain white walls don’t do any favours to the overall feel. The wooden mantel and built-in bookshelf lie quietly without any limelight.
After: The furnishings are brought closer to increase intimacy and warmth. A dash of boldness with the zebra print brings life to the humble sofa setting. The rug is removed to create more face and accentuate the wood floors. The walls are painted with subtle hues to break the monotony. Makeover to bring life!
3. From dark to classy- Makeover which is in vogue
Before: The living room looks heavy with furnishings, the yellow heart pine looks rustic and blocks light. It lacks personality and a very cabin-like feeling.
After: The ceiling, walls and the floor are dashed in white to lighten them up and the French doors with the 8 foot tall windows welcome the sunshine bringing in a positive vibe. The view blocking window blinds are discarded and an enticing color scheme of grey, black and green is chosen to add spark to the living room. Ghingham curtains and plaid pillows kick the country feel inside the living room.
4. From cold to homely- Makeover that cheers up
Before: The eccentric contrast between white walls and the dark wooden trim is harsh on the eye. To add to it, the spread-out seating gives a very detached feeling to the room with the high end table overshadowing the sofa.
After: The pale green walls bring a balance to the trim and a color play with the pillows blend with the neutral sofa adding a personal touch. The larger rug anchors the seating area replacing the smaller ones. The coffee table is made the end table with with the end tables becoming a console on the wall behind the love seat.
5. From horror to divine- Makeover which infuses life
Before: The living room looks straight out of horror movies, with white droopy walls and a carelessly placed white linen covered sofa. There are no details and everything looks frosty.
After: The makeover looks terrific with cream and beige bringing life to the living room. The large table at the centre banks on aesthetics and functionality. The wall hanging brings out the artsy side and the cushion covers look peppy.
