The living room serves as a place of meeting and exchange, a room for relaxation and togetherness with family and friends. Therefore it is very important to decorate the living room in such a way that the total get-up has a relaxing and soothing effect on the visitor. Here are some easy tips for decorating your living room.
Add Colorful Details
If the living room has totally white walls, or has a neutral shade as the backdrop, then introduce splashes of green and pink to brighten up the look. Add colorful cushions and carpets to liven up the atmosphere of the room.
If you have inherited antique furniture pieces like an elegant crystal chandelier, wrought-iron plant, or wicker chair, you can creatively pair them with modern sofas and upholstery to give your living room a timeless, yet contemporary look.
If your house overlooks the bay, then carefully plan the living room to incorporate a view of the sea. A majestic framework of wood beams outlining a stunning view of the clear waters, coupled with sea-tone candles and sleek white sofas will make this view even more overwhelming.
Enervating Family Room
Using shades of gold and red boldly, coupled with durable fabrics, slipcovers, and woven cotton-rug will create an amazing palette in your living room. Such upholstery will not only brighten up the mood, but also designed to be animal and children friendly.
Hanging silver plates n the walls of your living room will give your room a quirky effect. Transferware platters and plates hung above a floral printed couch will add charm to the room. Place a vintage trunk as the center table. Also, wall-mounted lamps will enhance the overall quirky effect created by the furniture and upholstery.
The decor of your living room largely influences the mood of your family members and guests. Therefore, its very important to pay careful attention to the details.
