One furniture company offers an 88 inch long 3-cushion reclining sofa in brown leather. This is a magnificent reclining sofa and likely offered at a magnificent price, but price is irrelevant to our discussion. This would appear to suit any living room in any home in the USA. But is it? If the rest of your living room furniture was in black leather, would you feel comfortable with a new brown leather sofa?
Now think about what you actually need, and what you might desire to have space for - in other words, separate your needs from your wants. For instance, you might need space for a sofa, TV and music, lighting and a coffee table and sideboard. You might want space for toys and books, DVD and CD storage and your hi-fi speakers. What you can actually fit into your room will depend on the size and shape of the space you have. You may have to be ruthless in your choices - it is important to obtain a balance between the areas taken up with furniture and open areas you use for access around the room.
Candles and lanterns, which were once thought of as unnecessary home accessories, are now considered to be the primary dwellers of modern homes. Lanterns with antique finish, colourful Moroccan lanterns and scented candles placed in sophisticated candleholders make a room look and feel pleasant and peaceful. You can hang the lanterns from the ceiling in the centre of the room over the centre table like a chandelier or place them in the corner of the living room or on the sides. If the rest of the living room contains neutral colours, it’s best to go with bright coloured lanterns and candles.
Wall coloring is also important. Choose colors that will help accentuate the design. Avoid bold or dark colors for your walls if you want to maintain the open feel of the room. Traditional living room design calls for classic elegance, so keep the colors in tune to keep the ambiance in tact.
