If you could only choose one room in your home to put your heart and soul into designing, the living room would top the list. It’s that treasured (and often off-limits) space that sets the tone for your entire decorating style. Seeing Red: The secret to taming a fiery red? Balance it with pops of white. A smattering of dove white wall accents with the white fireplace, chair rail, and coffee table keep the bold color in check. Pattern Play: Trellis, ikats, florals oh my! The trick to mixing patterns is to pick a color theme here, reds, browns, and blues and to use big swaths of solid color (the brown sofa, red chairs, and green ottoman) to anchor the space. Light and Airy: You can pack a lot into your living room even a dining set if you keep furnishings from weighing the space down. Lucite dining chairs, an open weave coffee table, and an unobstructed wall of windows keeps this room from feeling cramped.
Silver Accents: Cool metal touches give this room a sophisticated air. The scrolling mirror, the legs of the coffee table, even the fireplace andirons are all glossed in chic silver. Writing on the Wall: For truly unique (and sometimes quirky) decor. You can search by theme, type, even lyrics to your favorite Men Without Hats song. Does your living room work double duty as a front entry? Keep the two separated and well defined by lining one wall with a welcoming wallpaper, and keeping the living room furniture appropriated to an area rug. Flower Power: Here’s a bloomin’ brilliant idea: Keep oversized patterns in check by limiting them to well defined spaces (here a bouquet of blue flowers covers an occasional seat and an oversized roman shade). It will keep the powerful pattern from taking over the room. Back to Back: Create a dynamic seating arrangement by placing a set of sofas in the center of the room and with their backs to each other. It’s a bold move that creates two conversation corners.
Let The Waterworks Begin. There’s something particularly attractive about water. Sometimes, we feel the need to get closer to it wherever we see it, especially if it’s good–looking. The truth be told, water has been used throughout history as a way to channel out bad energy and as a medium for relaxation. A fountain or a pond are not very expensive. Creating a space that creates a seamless synergy between a fountain, canal or pond, with your the original design of your house is not that hard to do. Make an oasis out of your backyard with these little tips. Kick back and relax while you allow yourself to enjoy the perfect combination of sun, nature and comfort. Enjoy time on your own and with your loved ones in a space perfectly fit for all. If you have a house with even a little bit of outdoor space available, then you need to realize that it is important to keep it nice and tidy as well as designed in a style that will match the exterior of the house. This way, you can get an entire room decorated by the nature and refreshed by the summer breeze which you can enjoy with your friends and family.
Formal Arrangement: Designed for entertaining and little tete a tetes, this formal living room’s oval furniture arrangement keeps the focus inwards. Plus Size Arranging: An extra large sofa can mean plenty of room to stretch out, but it can also engulf a room. The trick is to anchor an oversized piece of furniture against a wall and use other voluminous accessories (a jumbo print or a king sized ottoman) for balance. Cabin Chic: A rustic retreat gets a pop with slipper chairs covered in a tribal ikat. It gives the outdoorsy cabin a feminine spin. Playing Together: Spike the interest level in a neutral room with a few splatters of pattern. The bold designs on these throw pillows might be overwhelming in a larger scale, but in a petite form they add a casual chic vibe. Eclectic Appeal: Two Moroccan poufs set on the floor give a wanderlust feel to this traditional living room and provide extra casual seating for guests. Accent Wall: Swathe one wall in a cheery wallpaper to warm your space. Choose a print that picks up other colors in the room. Office Space: Create a petite home office in your living room that’s big on style: Instead of a traditional desk chair (that would look out of place) appoint a living room chair that looks good facing the desk or the rest of the space.
