Stuff the Space!
One misstep that many novice builders make is a simple one: they assume that once they are able to build bigger rooms that they should. Then, after building a huge room, they push furniture to the walls and leave huge swathes of empty space. Don’t fall into this trap!
✔️Bigger is NOT always better. It is better to build a smaller room that is stuffed to the brim with good objects than to throw expensive objects into a huge room.
✔️Fill every empty corner with floor plants
✔️Fill wall space with curtains, wall lighting, and wall art.
✔️Allow furniture to breathe in the space.
✔️Demarcate space with area rugs
✔️Use fireplaces for instant coziness.
✔️Use simple white or black swatches to make even cheap items appear luxe.
✔️When in doubt, create a new seating area.
