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.
Work Your Weird Angles. Wondering if your living room furniture is working for you? Are you making the most of the space available to you? Is your current living room furniture arrangement making the room feel cramped or crowded? First you will want to consider the layout of the room, its function and how you prioritise the different elements of the room. Think about foot traffic when arranging furniture, as you don't want to be creating too many obstacles that disrupt the flow of the room. People don't want to be navigating a maze to sit on the sofa from the entrance of the living room. An awkwardly shaped living room can be baffling to decorate. Here's what to mull over if you're working with an odd space. You can turn a weird wall into a focal point. The owner of this apartment turned the vertical space around her bedroom door into a salon styled gallery wall. Not sure where to put the sofa? A bold pattern can establish a center point in an oddly shaped area. Here peonies wallpaper anchors the living room.
Identify your style… and your stuff,"First, you need to decide what kind of look you are going for," says Erica Lugbill of Lugbill Designs in Chicago. Do you envision a light and airy living room? Or do you prefer something calm and serene? Perhaps your style is simple and earthy, or bold and dramatic."Secondly, look at all of the items you own that need to be incorporated into the space," adds Lugbill. Consider your furniture, storage pieces and accessories, for example. Get inspired, Begin by selecting an inspiration piece. An inspiration piece typically has a palette of three to five colors. Try to envision those colors in your living room. "Choose something you love, such as your favorite outfit or a painting by your favorite artist," says Sehra Han, an interior designer at Scarlett Designs in Los Angeles. "Many people make the mistake of starting with a paint color," adds interior designer Robin Baron of Robin Baron Design in New York City. Instead, "find the one thing you know you want to put in the room… like a fabric," Baron says. "Even a favorite pillow is a good place to begin. Play off that item for your color palette.
