Living Room / June 20, 2018 / .
You can choose between one of two schools of thought for living room decorating ideas, a variety of pieces that all reflect one unified theme or a simple design that can be the backdrop for decor pieces representing many styles. To begin designing your living room remodel, literally begin from the ground up. If your living room is part of a much larger open concept space within your home, you can choose a different type of flooring, like an area rug, to set off the living area. On the flip side of that design, if you have a small living room, unifying the flooring with surrounding areas can lead to the feel of a much larger space.
Use a daybed as a room divider. In a really large living room, you may wish to create two full seating areas. Mark the separation while keeping the flow between the two zones with furniture you can easily see over: a daybed, bench, or chaise is a good option. Define zones with a console table.Another option for sectioning off parts of a large living room is floating your sofa in the middle of the room and placing a console table behind it.
White walls, couches, and a mantel let strategic pops of color go a long way to enliven the space. Hints of coral and lime green bring life to this living room while black accents help ground the mainly white space. A wood floor in a matte finish adds visual warmth underfoot. A fabulously bold patterned rug dresses up white walls and serves as the inspiration for this rooms color scheme. Although the rug and surrounding textiles contain different patterns, they feature the same colors and therefore complement each other. Choose furniture with solid fabrics within the color scheme to add stability and separate the patterns, like this blue chair and leather-top coffee table.
Once inside your front door, the first room your guests and family members are likely to encounter is your living room. You host gatherings in your living room, snack on the couch while watching TV, listen to children practice musical instruments, and just generally hang out in this multifunctional space. The way you design your living room can set the design feel for your entire home. You may also change your living room décor at various times of the year for different holidays and seasons
