Lodge living rooms
With Christmas just around the corner, and the winter weather starting to take hold, we all want to make our homes as cosy as possible. Traditional looks with modern spins are huge this year, with the lodge trend dominating interior design magazines. Here’s how you can transform your living room into a homely lodge, just in time for the festive season.
A sofa is the most essential piece of furniture in any living room. Because the lodge trend is such a specific look, your existing sofa may not look right, so it may be time to invest in a new one.
For an authentic lodge look, go for a sofa in a rich brown leather. Modern shapes will seem out of place in such a traditional style room, so opt for a more classic shape to make sure your look is perfect.
Corner sofas are a great option if space is an issue in your living room. Conveniently fitting into a corner, they will provide all of the seating you need in one compact piece of furniture. have a great range of corner sofas, including the Farrah Scatterback corner. The solid wooden feet, aged leather and curved arms make this sofa the perfect addition to any lodge-themed living room.
Feature walls have been a huge trend for many years now and they still reign supreme in the lodge trend.
Tartan or wood effect statement wallpaper, when used on one wall, will transform your room into a mountain hideaway. This charcoal and brown wallpaper is a great choice for one wall, but it is bold. To make sure your room is not overwhelmed, make sure you use muted, complementary colours on the other walls.
To really create a cosy atmosphere in your living room-come-lodge, soft lighting is essential. Bright lighting will be too harsh and ruin the whole feel of the room. You should dot a few lamps around your room to provide suitable lighting in an appropriate manner.
There are some great lodge-style lamps available. This Stag Table Lamp from Next is a great statement piece and will look fabulous teamed with a few plainer lamps.
Your new living room will be the perfect place to hibernate this winter.
