How Do I Soften the Look of My New
Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: I am refurnishing my living room at the moment and have filled the space with a lot of dark wood tones, straight lines, and nuetral colors. What items/accessories can I purchase to soften the space without adding pink or ruffles? Not all of the furniture in the room has been purchased so I have no pictures yet, but I've created a mood board to give you an idea.
