tips on making a room look less like a shipping container

3 months ago

My living room has the proportions of a shipping container - long and narrow with a low ceiling. It also has various boxed-in ducts that lower the ceiling more and catch the eye. It feels very much like a box - there are lots of straight lines.

I wish it felt more homely so I'm planning to add some extra texture plus some furniture with curves (a pouffe, a table with barley legs, photos with round mounts). the walls and ceiling are also going to be the same colour (white). I'd love any other suggestions that would make this space feel more welcoming.

It doesn't get much light so I'm reluctant to change the blinds - although window stickers could be an option?
