Keeping in mind the layout of your room and the style of the existing pieces of furniture you’re attempting to match will help you to select a piece that will work with your space. Whether your home is a modern dream or a contemporary ranch, there are a few things that you need to take it from simple to stylish.

Consider picking out a statement piece. Every room needs something that captures the attention of the person entering it. Statement pieces are a great way to show off your personal style and pull a room together. When you’re choosing your statement piece, consider finding pieces that appear natural, because they match with any style of furniture. A raw wood coffee table with visible wood grain looks beautiful with shiny metal furniture and a cozy couch. It feels peaceful, and it gives your home an automatic, natural feel.

If you live in NYC, custom made furniture can run you a pretty penny. Pieces like a large natural coffee table can be hard to find, so it might be better to shop online. Consider furniture stores online before commissioning a custom piece. Delivering a heavy coffee table might be expensive, but it’s certainly a better option than ordering an up-charged piece from a high-end boutique.

After you’ve found your statement piece, subtly incorporate its style into other rooms in your home. For example, if you have a large, natural-looking coffee table in your living room, consider getting bare hardwood chairs for your dining room or kitchen. Pick up the natural look in other ways with natural wood counters, or just with bathroom and bedroom decoration. A raw wood headboard is an easy DIY project, and including some wooden décor throughout your home creates a calming and cohesive atmosphere.

When picking out your statement coffee table, consider your couch and surrounding decorations. If you need to, do some slight redecoration to make sure everything works in the space. A new couch in NY will be costly, but a new end table or new throw pillows are an easy way to redecorate a room.

Repainting is another great way to get a new look for your living room without spending a fortune. Choosing colors such as blue or green will give your living a calming air., while going with gray or gold will make your wood coffee table look like a piece of art in a stylish museum. Choose your colors carefully when redecorating your house, and have a specific look in mind before you begin.

After you’ve finished redecorating your living room, make sure the room fits with your personal style. You should feel calm, relaxed, and welcomed by your new décor. That’s what’s great about choosing natural wood furniture – it easily relaxes you and allows you to unwind. But most of all, your new decor should inspire you
