Problem #4: Too Much Color or Pattern. Red walls are not for the slight of heart, nor for slight spaces. Neither are large patterns. Dark woods, dark furnishings, and dark paint shades will make even the largest space feel smaller. It's easy to overwhelm the space with too much color and too much texture or pattern. Solutions: When it comes to color in small living room decorating, stick with light shades and neutral tones. Small spaces work best with a three-color (or less) palette and do especially well with an all-white decorating scheme. When choosing larger furnishings, like a sofa or shelving system, stick to solid colors and lighter woods. To enliven your space, use brighter colors and small patterns in your decor and small furnishings. If you just can't bring yourself to limit your walls to neutrals, consider an accent wall or a simple wall decal, stencil or painted design.
PINPOINT YOUR STYLE. Spend time reading blogs and magazines to find your ideal style. Pinterest is a great resource, too! If you love clean lines and exposed wood grains, you might like mid-century modern. Or if you prefer painted wood and slipcovered seating, you may love country decor. Once you've determined your style, now comes the fun part: purchasing new furniture! Start with the big items—a sofa, rug, and entertainment center—since they take up the most space and are the focal points of the room. Envious of folks who seem to instantly know what they love? Who never question whether a new furniture piece is their style because they know so confidently what their style is? We've got seven ways you can learn how to pinpoint your style quicker and more easily.
Pick an accent color (or two). After you finalize the paint color for the wall, choose another color from your palette for your draperies and throw pillows. "You can choose the same color as your wall for a monochromatic look or choose a contrasting color to give it a punch," explains Han. Use the contrasting accent color for any side chairs and accessories you'd like to use in your living room. "For added fun," suggests Han, "pick interesting patterns or textures." Be loyal to your palette, If you like to continually add items to your living room, then keep a photo with you and try to stick to your original color scheme. Stay true to your palette, and your living room will always look finished!.
