Tips for Formal Sitting Rooms

When you’re putting together a formal sitting room, your needs are different than when decorating a living room that your family uses daily. This type of room gives you the freedom to put together a great looking space that won’t fall victim to everyday wear and tear, as it is largely decorative. Here are some features to include in your formal sitting area:

Accent Pillows
Finding the perfect accent pillow will really tie the room together. If you coordinate colors like the hues in this gorgeous blue Aberdeen Sofa, you’ll be able to harmonize better with the color palette. Don’t be afraid of more bold colors when there are plenty of ways to incorporate them throughout the space.

In a house with smaller children, or even clumsy adults, placing vases around the house is hardly an option. In a more formal room, the accouterments are less likely to be bumped into or handled. Let your design spirit run wild picking out glass details!

When looking for furniture that the whole family is less likely to gather on often, you might want to focus less on pieces like sectionals. Sectionals are great for big family rooms, but for more formal sitting areas, a traditionally styled sofa, loveseat, or collection of upholstered chairs will look great. Keep an eye out for details like turned wood legs and a nailhead trim to really enhance the look.
