Make your living room more livable!

Here are some great ideas that can dramatically improve the feel and “feng shui” of any living room. Read on!

  1. Move the furniture away from the walls: The tendency is to place your furniture against the walls, but giving it a little room to breathe will make the seating area seem cozier while also making the room seem more spacious.
  2. Mix old and new pieces: Using the same furniture set to furnish an entire room can make it seem a bit sterile. Try mixing and matching different pieces and styles to give your living room a more eclectic feel.
  3. Keep everything low: Arranging photos and artwork lower on walls will make a room appear larger, and can also draw more attention to the pieces themselves.
  4. Place a bookshelf behind the sofa: It doesn’t have to be your entire personal library. Mix and match books with knick-knacks and other items to add some depth and texture to the space behind your sofa.
  5. Try a smaller coffee table: Your current coffee table is probably larger than it needs to be, and it may be dominating the room. Try downsizing to a table that can still hold magazines, a centerpiece, and a few drinks, but will also give you a bit more room to move around your furniture.

Princess Leia

Leia

Leia is our socalhomeshop pet of the week at your available at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a four-year-old, nine pound, Domestic Short Hair with a brown Tabby coat.           

While Princess Leia would be a purrfect fit anywhere, it’s not hard to imagine her as an “office cat” that would greet guests and customers. She loves being wherever the people are. She needs to be the only cat. If you’re at the computer, don’t be surprised if she tries to bat her paw at your mouse.

The $100 adoption fee for Leia includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

Everyone deserves a home!
