Contemporary Living Room
What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. Everything clean and in its placeWouldn’t it be nice to have a staff to clean your living spaces daily, à la Downton Abbey? The modern version of this is giving your space a good once-over before the guests arrive and cleaning up the clutter – that pile of mail, book bags, cat scratcher, dog toys, TV remotes. Get your cards, music, coasters and seating arrangements ready, and your “drawing room” will be good to go.Read more:33 of the Most Stylish Drawing Rooms on Houzz IndiaTell us:How have you designed your drawing room?

2. Give your furniture some breathing roomResist overcrowding a room. Gracious living means space to maneuver with ease. This is really great news if you are working with a tight budget. You don’t need to fill up a space with lots of furniture. Spend more of your budget on fewer but better-quality pieces, and your room will look better than if it’s stuffed to the gills with flea market finds. The high-backed chairs shown here, for example, stand out because they don’t have to fight for attention.
