Inspiring Room Decorating Ideas
Whether it’s a complete overhaul or a quick refresh, spice up the family’s favorite room with these pro tips. You spend a lot of time in your living room, so it not only needs to look great, but it needs to be functional and comfortable. Blending all three things can be tricky, but we’ve got plenty of ideas to inspire you.
There’s nothing a few throw pillows can’t fix.
1. Tilted Mirror
For a laid-back look on your mantel, rest a sturdy style against the wall – no hammering required.
2. Green Sofa
Make the living room feel airer (and infinitely bigger) by replacing a bulky sectional with pretty seating. Green color is excellent for relaxing.
3. Statement Rug
A patterned carpet plays up the neutral furniture, while a similarly-hued pillow adds another punch to the armchair. And it’s look adorable!
4. Sheer Curtains
The quickest way to let light in starts at the source. Replace heavy fabric curtains with gauzy ones, making sure the panels go all the way to the floor. To accentuate a tall ceiling, mount the drapes about a foot above windows and doors.
5. Sneaky Furniture
Choose a few full-size furniture pieces instead of cramming in lots of smaller ones. The living room will feel larger, and you’ll have a sofa you actually like to sit on.
6. Natural Textures
Underused neutrals rust and charcoal echo throughout with woodsy elements like oak, cedar, stone, and leather.
7. Gorgeous Gallery in Dining Room
The dining room offers a perfect backdrop for the bespoke gallery wall. Even in the open plan living the gallery wall gives the dining space in the corner a distinct identity and style of its own.
8. Color Harmony
Traditional-style furniture gets a dash of regal style with rich purple accents and an oversized rug to anchor the conversation space.
9. Minimalist Dream
Achieve a serene, polished look with dark flooring and furniture in varying shades of white.
10. Go for Gold – Yellow
Sofas can do that you know. But only if they’re a cheeky bright hue.
