DECORATING A LIVING ROOM
Architect Anela Tahirovic, who runs the Instagram account @arkihem, inspires her followers with her delightful interior design. Take part in her tips for decorating a living room with emotion.
WHO IS ARKIHEM?
The Instagram account @arkihem is managed by architect Anela Tahirovic, who lives with her family just outside Malmö. She works as an architect and finds the most enjoyment in creating spaces where we humans feel comfortable.
During a typical day in her life, it’s a lot of work from early morning to late afternoon. After an intense workday, the focus shifts to family, and they enjoy cooking, sports, and spending time together. There’s also quite a bit of work around the house and in their large garden. Anela thrives best in beautiful, functional, and orderly environments, something she happily dedicates time to creating.
DECORATE A LIVING ROOM WITH EMOTION
When aiming to create a delightful atmosphere in a living room, Anela believes it’s important to consider that the purpose is to socialise and connect.
– If there’s space in your home, it’s lovely to place two sofas facing each other with a coffee table in the middle. In our home, we chose the BROOKSVILLE coffee table with a marble top resting on an oak base, which creates a wonderful atmosphere with the mix of natural materials and becomes a stylish centerpiece to gather around.
STYLING A ROUND COFFEE TABLE
According to Anela, the coffee table always catches the eye in the living room, so she believes it’s important to focus on a beautiful vase with flowers along with candlesticks, preferably of varying heights. When it comes to a round coffee table, it’s also nice if the round shapes are echoed in the items you choose.
- My last tip is to keep it minimal yet inviting. It’s not entirely easy, but focus on a few things you like and find visually appealing. By doing so, you can go a long way in creating a wonderful atmosphere in the living room.
