In neutral or all-white spaces, a bold, statement-making light fixture can be an investment and game changer. This geo-inspired fixture by Crystorama draws the eye up to the vaulted ceiling and provides plenty of light to the space when the sun goes down.
Hands down, the quickest and easiest way to transform a space is with an area rug. Since this room is casual, its floors are covered with a wool flat-weave rug, which is easy to care for, lightweight and easy to move around. Anytime you're using area rugs in high-traffic spaces, be sure to invest in a rug pad to ensure it stays in place and eliminates any trip hazards.
