But don't sacrifice personality when you want to maximize space. Dress up your loveseats with accessories such as personalized throw pillows or a slip cover that reflects the look of your home. Aside from what you can put on your loveseats, don't be afraid to add plants, artwork and tabletop décor. Just make sure not to put too much as these can also become visual clutter.
If you have plans on moving to a new house think about furniture, upholstery and collect as many fabric swatches and samples until you find the ones that you love. A lot of online and brick-and-mortar furniture stores would gladly provide you with fabric samples if you asked them. Start your collecting process at least six months before moving or renovation. Make sure to order more than one set of swatches because many fabrics can be discontinued within six months or even sooner.
Kept spotlessly clean, the living room location permitted the homemaker to entertain guests without their getting far into the dwelling (where messes lurked). A home maker might comfortably engage in polite and interesting conversation, and make an impression on guests in the living room. That location, the most formal, coat-and-tie room in the house, exuded sophistication as well as cleanliness and it wordlessly identified the family as rising in social status (or it did not). But, housing changed in the U.S. in the 1970's when people wanted to express themselves, to have more choice, and they cared less about what guests thought of them.
