Think of a nice hotel lobby: The furniture is arranged in groupings that invite conversation. When you place the furniture in your living room, aim for a similar sense of balance and intimacy. "A conversation area that has a U-shape, with a sofa and two chairs facing each other at each end of the coffee table, or an H-shape, with a sofa directly across from two chairs and a coffee table in the middle, is ideal," says Michelle Lynne, a Dallas-based stager. One common mistake to avoid: Pushing all the furniture against the walls. "People do that because they think it will make their room look bigger, but in reality, floating the furniture away from the walls makes the room feel larger," she says.
Positive Vibes: Once you gain awareness of the memories that make up your home, notice those items that bring a smile to your face. Begin to add items from fun excursions that will remind you of good times and uplifting people. These items will give you a boost and nurture and inspire you as you move through your home and life.
"When it comes to heavy, outdated drapes, a naked bank of windows is better than an ugly one," says Lynne. Ideally, window dressings should be functional and elegant: Think sheers paired with full-length panels. If your room gets a lot of sun, opt for light colors that wont fade. The most recommended lightweight fabrics for panels are cotton, linen, and silk blends because they tend to hang well.
