What Houzz contributors are saying:
Hang long curtainsThere’s something about floor-length drapes that instantly signify luxury and grandeur: warmth, cosiness, five-star hotels and country houses. Look online for companies that can make budget curtains on demand. Team with a pretty decorative chandelier to ramp up the manor-house vibe. And dare to choose a patterned material, as they’ve done here to provide an eye-catching effect.
Stools and benches. When you want a decorative touch or when you will occasionally need an extra seat or ottoman, consider placing stools and benches in your layout. Stools may be 16 to 20 in. (41 to 51 cm) square; benches are around 14 to 18 in. (36 to 46 cm) deep and 36 to 60 in. (91 to 152 cm) long. In this living room, two marvelously detailed stools complete a cleverly eclectic space with great finesse.
