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.
Add Living Color. Are you looking for a super easy decorating idea? Nothing prettifies a living room like plants. Blooming perennials like daffodils or tulips add lovely color, while leafy beauties including ferns and spider plants bring interesting texture (plus they clean indoor air!) Got a black thumb? Try a few low-maintenance options from the succulent family. While it's true that neutral room schemes provide a blank canvas, there's a lot to be said for introducing colour. Different shades can have an uplifting or calming effect and your choice of colour and soft furnishings can go a long way to reflecting your personality. If you're feeling bold, have a look at our wallpaper ideas for living rooms.
If you have quite a big living room or an open plan dining and living room, you can use the pathway to separate the different functional areas of the room. The focal point of a room should be suited to the room's function. Create too many focal points and your living room will feel visually cluttered or confusing. Arrange your furniture around the focal centre of the room (which doesn't necessarily have to be the literal centre of the room). I've reluctantly included a black marker for television placement in the living room floor plan diagrams below, as the television is typically the focal point of most living rooms today. To quote Joey from Friends, “You don't have a TV? What's all your furniture pointed at?”. But if you don't have a TV, (good for you!) you can replace this with a console table or artwork or whatever you like really to act as an anchor for the rest of the room. Even better if you have a fireplace that would make a great focal point for your living room.
