Can’t seem to create a living room that feels quite right? Looking for some styling tips that will bring your living room up a notch? Here are five ideas that can dramatically improve your living room.
Move the furniture away from the walls: The tendency is to place your furniture against the walls, but giving it a little room to breathe will make the seating area seem cozier while also making the room seem more spacious.
Mix old and new pieces: Using the same furniture set to furnish an entire room can make it seem a bit sterile. Try mixing and matching different pieces and styles to give your living room a more eclectic feel.
Keep everything low: Arranging photos and artwork lower on walls will make a room appear larger, and can also draw more attention to the pieces themselves.
Place a bookshelf behind the sofa: It doesn’t have to be your entire personal library. Mix and match books with knick-knacks and other items to add some depth and texture to the space behind your sofa.
Try a smaller coffee table: Your current coffee table is probably larger than it needs to be, and it may be dominating the room. Try downsizing to a table that can still hold magazines, a centerpiece, and a few drinks, but will also give you a bit more room to move around your furniture.

"Emma, Brian and their Team are 100% amazing! As an owner of both investment properties and a handful of primary residences over the decades, we know the value and importance of using high performing teams - and this is one of them!
They were referred to us by multiple friends, colleagues and working professionals (including our Tax guy). Not only are they high-performing, they are super cool people! Their knowledge, experience, friendliness, professionalism, expediency, know-how, and one of the biggest traits - "neighborhood specialist" were instrumental in the recent sell of our Penasquitos home and purchase of our new Scripps Ranch home. We ended up selling for well over asking (and over our goal). The preparation and selling process were smooth and successful.
Emma and Brian then spent months with us viewing homes that were fairly limited due to our 'requirements' and a limited supply of homes in the areas we were looking in. They always seemed available whenever something came up that we wanted more info on or to go see. Their neighborhood experience and expertise was evident by knowing what streets to see and what streets avoid. Makes sense since they both live in and have bought/sold their own residences in Scripps. Then, Emma was able to get us into see a home in an exclusive neighborhood PRE-Listing, for which we submitted an offer that was accepted before it even listed.
