When redecorating, one of the easiest ways to make a small living room feel more spacious is to add depth and texture to your walls and inject soft shades of colour into your design scheme. Keeping the room warm and inviting is essential for creating a living space that you want to spend time in, and the soft brush strokes of the abstractly painted wallpaper murals do just that. Incorporating a pastel pink backdrop filled with intricate paintbrush design features creates the perfect canvas for styling both a modern and elegant space.
The free-flowing ink within the watercolour designs adds a sense of continuity and togetherness to the room, a great styling technique when welcoming your guests to enjoy the space with you. The blue colour palette is a great option for designing a small space, as blue has both a calming effect on the mind and the power of making a room feel tranquil and more collected.
The peaceful power of blue shines through the Large Blue Face Line Drawing design too. This mural injects a modern artistic flair of femininity to your walls, through the curves and soft lines of the faces. The mural works really well as an accent wall, as your eye follows the lines top to bottom, left to right, wandering to the edges of the room, making it both feel and look like a bigger, airier space.
The five designs in this collection are all murals (as opposed to wallpapers), which makes them the perfect option for styling a small space as they create one large focal point. The large motifs and features within the murals elongate your wall and enlarge the look of your room, working as an optical illusion. Positioning your feature wall either opposite, or on the wall where your door sits, will also make the room feel deeper, drawing attention away from the entrance and making it seem much larger than it actually is. We would also advise against installing your mural on a wall with windows in a small room, as this can limit the overall effect.
It’s certainly true that ‘less is more’ in small spaces and attaining a modern small space requires close observance to this mantra. The combination of edges, curves and colour schemes, as well as the furniture you choose, really makes a space modern, however, careful consideration of your walls will allow you to create a particularly spectacular space that you will love for years to come. We have styled our small modern living room collection with stunning but simple furniture, homely decorative accessories and a few plants for a boost of freshness. Your living room may be small, but it can be perfectly formed.
