Decorating a living room shouldn’t be too extravagant and expensive. If you are in a tight budget, you can always do it yourself instead of hiring an interior designer; but if you can afford to hire a good designer, then why not. You can plan ahead and check for designs on the internet or magazines to visualize the effect on your actual living room.
Seating furniture is the most striking component of any living room. However, instead of going for a huge and bulky sofa set, get loveseats, ottomans and lounge chairs. A mix and match of these pieces not only looks unique, attractive and minimalistic, it also consumes lesser space and provides diverse sitting options. Whites, beiges, greys and blacks are the ideal colours for seating furniture. Throw a splash of colour using lots of cushions.
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.
Use lighter shades of green, blue and yellow for your walls. These lighter colors or pastels help open up the room and give it a more airy feel. If you want a cozier feel to your living room, use darker shades of red, blue and brown.
