Top Five Friday
5 Items for an Insta-Worthy Living Room
Let’s admit it: we all attempt, quite regularly, to take pictures of our living rooms in hope that the result will be pretty enough to share in our Instagram story. And there’s no problem with that, not at all. But the thing is, we spend so much time trying to take the perfect picture, only to realize in the end that something is missing, or that the throw is awkwardly placed on your modular sofa and it Just. Doesn’t. Work. Maybe the lighting is bad, or maybe the plant you haven’t watered in a month isn’t looking great. And hey, there are plenty of ways to trick reality nowadays, by applying filters or playing with the picture’s features. But if you don’t have the right items, placed at the right spot, then how are you supposed to make your living room look like it’s straight out of a home decor mag? Trust us when we say that an insta-worthy living room starts with insta-worthy items. This week’s Top Five Friday holds 5 items that will help you create a cozy, insta-worthy living room. And then you can take as many pictures as you want, and we promise they’ll be pretty enough to post in your story.
Item #1: A Trendy Rug
Rugs are great because they add on so much to a room, simply by being there. They’re cute, comfortable, and an affordable way to change the whole look of a living room. Rugs come in all sizes and colours, but we recommend that you go with one of neutral colour for the best look.
Item #2: A Useful Coffee Table
Coffee tables are 1. great and 2. useful. Not only to they fill the blank space between your sofa and the TV, but they’re necessary to relax your feet, and they allow you to eat in front of the TV. Cheers to that!
Item #3: A Vivid Plant
If you aren’t new to Cozey’s Top 5 Fridays, then you most definitely know how much we love plants around here. Like alot. And to the new ones in town, welcome, and get ready to like plants as much as we do. If you missed out on last week’s top 5, it was 100% on plants, so check it out!
Item #4: A Colourful Set of Cushions
Nothing beats cushions. Especially not when they’re in bright colours. Opt for around 3 cushions if you have a loveseat. We recommend going with a combo of accent colours and neutral colours, as you want it to pop but keep it lowkey at the same time.
Item #5: An Accent Wall (ok that’s not really an item but you get the point)
From wallpaper to art, accent walls are definitely a big trend on Instagram right now. Try to mix and match different frames to create the perfect accent wall, or simply install a vibrant wallpaper.
