Stages of Style

Stage One
Stage TwoStage Three
The first stage is all about establishing your room’s foundation with those must-have pieces, like a sofa and loveseat. By opting for a neutral color like almond for your furniture and walls, you’ll have more decorating options when you begin piecing your room together. And if you want to inject some punch into your space, look to your throw pillows and a few color-coordinated accents.
As you build your room, it’s smart to invest in multipurpose pieces that can be moved around or used later—and nothing fits the bill better than a storage ottoman! Alone, it’s useful for corralling throws, pillows and kids’ toys, or it can act as extra seating when you need it. Set a tray on top and instantly transform the ottoman into a convenient coffee table.

A console table for your TV is another good piece to build on. Starting with a sofa table will provide a place for your TV now, and it can be repurposed when you’re ready to invest in an entertainment center with more storage and display space. To finish your first stage, incorporate simple, sheer window treatments.
