2017 living room inspiration
The lounge is one of the most-used rooms in your home, which is why successful living spaces “combine form with function”, says The Block NZ co-host Shelley Ferguson.
Using Shelley’s 11 ways to love your living room we take a peek at some of the most stylish living areas on realestate.co.nz this month. Will you be inspired to makeover your lounge in 2017?
Sofa, so good
A stunning couch, like this one in Remuera, is a great way to add character to your living room.
Embrace mother nature
Bring nature inside to add freshness and colour to your home. Consider fresh flowers, potted plants or low-maintenance succulents.
Pop of colour in Pongakawa
Don’t be afraid of colour. Test the waters by introducing small touches like a bright rug, lamp or cushions.
50 shades of living
If you prefer a monochrome colour palette, choose rugs, throws and artwork that add texture to the room, like this property in Kingsland.
Light it up
Statement lighting is both functional and stylish. Consider pendant lighting or a floor lamp, like this property in Tamahere.
