01. Opt For Plush Chairs In A Bold Hue
Keep things comfy with beautifully upholstered chairs in a luxe material like velvet, which adds a touch of opulence. Going with an unexpected color choice will ensure the plush seating will be a bold choice that will stand out and become a coveted piece.
If you’re feeling particularly plucky, mix-and-match chair sets for an avant-garde look. When going that route, stick to streamlined silhouettes to keep things from looking overly busy.
02. Pair A Geometric Mirror With A Sculptural Chandelier
Choosing a chandelier and mirror with shared materials, finishes, or design styles can achieve a sense of intentionality, so the room feels cohesive.
03. Keep A Stocked Bar Cart—And We’re Not Talking About The Liquor
We trust you’ve got the spirits covered when it comes to your bar setup, but don’t forget to make the most of that extra surface space. Not everything on your bar cart needs to be functional or even related to happy hour.
To add character, play with objects such as artistic glasses or sculptural vases. Vary the height and size of all the pieces to create a dynamic vignette. Adding in something organic, like flowers or a leafy houseplant, brings warmth.
04. Place An Eye-Catching Rug Underfoot
Finally, don’t neglect your flooring. Rugs are essential for pulling any room together. In this space, the half circles of the rug play off the curved shapes of the chairs, as well as the neutral tones of the patterning on the accent wall, finishing off a cohesive design scheme.
