Mix things up your Living Room
To make the most of a small living room, you're going to have to learn how to break some old-fashioned rules. It is definitely all right to mix it up these days in a way that works for you. Gone are the expectations that every living room will have the obligatory sofa, matching love seat and two -- count them! -- chairs in a companion fabric.
If your living room will function better by having a low coffee table and four lounge chairs instead of a sofa grouping, then that's what you should do. Perhaps you would prefer a love seat and two comfortable reading chairs.
The key element in getting your home to work harder for you is your own flexibility. If you can believe in the mix-and-match idea, dozens of options are available to you. Freedom from the old rules makes it much easier to take advantage of sales and then pair items such as pillows that you might not have thought about before with each other.
