Especially when we don't break down walls, and don't plan to redecorate the whole house.

This is manifested when we want to invest in a certain part of the house, such as the living room for example, refresh its shape, replace furniture, change the palette of colors and materials, introduce new elements and more.

If the window faces the neighbors, it is recommended to use a more massive, opaque curtain with an interesting pattern or color.

Treating the living room table as a sculptural element: beyond the fact that a living room table is an important and useful item, when you choose a table with a sculptural motif made of materials such as wood or natural stone, the entire living room takes on an artistic, original tone that will set it apart from any other living room.

Lighting: Lighting in the living room is of crucial importance.

The tone of the lighting is what determines the atmosphere in the house, and therefore it is important to incorporate lighting fixtures that allow the creation of changing lighting scenarios depending on the desired atmosphere.

In this way, when guests arrive there will be a possibility of more powerful lighting, and in a romantic evening the atmosphere can be dimmed.

Art: Art pieces in the living room are another way of self-expression and unique of the tenants living in the house.

Good art will be one that is detached from passing trends, that the more you look at it, you will discover new depths and layers in it that will surprise you and make you appreciate it even more.

This is a long-term investment, so buying art is a long-distance run.
