Your living room includes the living room and the dining room? According to Sophie Ferjani, the natural distribution of the living room is one third of the space for the dining room and two thirds for the living room. Unless you receive every day, you spend more time in the living room than in the dining room, so it is necessary to leave him the most beautiful place.

4. Optimize the location of the sofa
If in a large living room put the sofa in the center of the room is not a problem, it is not recommended by Sophie Ferjani for small salons or those of medium size. The sofa finds its place back to the wall and preferably facing the door. Thus, he invites relaxation and conviviality.
5. Choose color gradients to reboost a room
Sophie Ferjani likes to put color in a room to revamp. But be careful, no matter how. If you want to paint your piece in color, choose well-matched shades of color, avoiding garish colors. Prefer a beige and a taupe rather than an orange and a red.
6. Go for the wall cladding to warm up the mood
If you're not lucky enough to have bricks or exposed stones, Sophie Ferjani advises you to apply a wall covering sparingly. With material on the wall, the atmosphere warms up easily in a room. Choose a false paneling or fake exposed bricks or for small budgets, wallpapers mimic these coatings. A deco idea to privilege in the big stays.
7. Highlight your furniture
Do you have a beautiful library or a magnificent buffet? Do not leave it in a corner of your room. A beautiful piece of furniture deserves a place in the center of the wall where it will take its full extent.
8. Repaint the tiles in the bathroom, and even the sanitary!
An old bathroom? Old-fashioned tiles? Before breaking everything, Sophie Ferjani recommends using special paint to repaint the elements. The furniture, tiles and even the bath and toilet can be repainted with a suitable paint. And for a great decor, swap the shower curtain of your bathtub against a more modern glass shower screen.
