Living Room is the center of every home. It is the place where you spend the most of the time in your home. And for that reason you would want it to have its own ambiance which brings serenity. However, this is also the place where you get to breathe and socialize.
Decorating or redecorating your living room could be a tough job but you must keep only one thing in mind before you go about it. That sole mantra is your comfort. There is no point in having a set of sofas which looks pretty but is not comfortable. Moreover, you should also not stuff all your furniture into one room. In fact you should add some space into it so that it doesn’t appear too stuffed.
If you don’t have the perfect furniture or sofa that suits your living room. You can easily get modern furniture at rent on very easy monthly rental. When you get bored of it you can replace it with new premium furniture. 🙂
Here are 8 decor ideas which can help you choose a furniture. Adds statement to your living room and bring it back to life.
ADDING SHADES OF GREY:
It’s time to ditch the black and whites and look out for colours like grey. The colour grey is often regarded as the colour of intellect but it is mostly perceived as a classic. Jane-Auguste-Dominique Ingres quoted “Better grey than garishness”. This simply means sometimes it it’s better to have something subtle rather than swank. Try finding a textured grey sofa set which could match the teak brown glass coffee table.
THE ONE WITH AN ICONIC FURNITURE SET:
Ever wondered if your living room could have the iconic orange couch of the Central Perk coffee shop from Friends? Trust me, we all have! Friends was one of the most popular TV shows of the ‘90s. And this orange couch was the most recognizable piece of furniture that could be seen at Central Perk. Moreover, there is one more thing which excites all the friends fans and that is the Classic black Barcalounger Recliner from Chandler and Joey’s apartment. I am sure even you must be having goals of sitting on Barcalounger with your best friend and playing on your Playstation.
A FAMILY FRIENDLY LIVING ROOM:
This one is for those who have little kids in their homes who need to be handled with care. Going for dark shades can be a better option and using a leather couch with durable fabric or surface so that it can be cleaned easily. You can choose colours like navy, dark brown, violet, or even a textured black for your living room couch. The main idea is to keep it simple yet pretty and small objects out of reach of children. You can even opt for a high rise coffee table, where you can decorate stuff without having to worry about any damage to or by your kids.
BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL
It is true that your living room reflects your personality. If you are an energetic person who likes to play around with colours, then you can opt for certain quirky colours to add to your living room. Along with some contrasting curtains. If you do not want your living room to be too bright, you can opt for a beige sofa and colourful cushions. You can even position your sofa or couch under a window. This would allow direct sunlight to fall inside the room and would brighten up the room.
THE ARTISTIC APPROACH
Some people find it really exhilarating to have abstract art pieces in the living room. But adding abstract paintings in your living room can be a challenging task because you do not want it to look imprudent. Therefore, it is advisable to have a minimalist approach towards adding frames. Make sure you do not stuff the room, it might draw the attention away from your expensive artwork.
THE POWER OF PASTELS
With the advent of modern fashion trends, pastel colours like delicate green and peach have become the first choice of a large number of people. Adding pastel hues to your living room can brighten it up to a great extent and can also help in promoting a healthy environment around you. For those who do not want your living room to be dark and dingy, this pale shade of green (or even a shade of peach) which is almost white, will match beautifully with the rest of the decor. The walls and the whole room would brighten up because of the essence of these shades.
THE CLASSIC LOUNGE:
Giving your living room an old-school look can be called playing it safe. But at the same time it can also be eclectic. Adding a traditional style furniture, a vintage sofa or maybe a statement rug can give it a regal style as well as a balanced look. This can be done by making your furniture stand out, and that can be done by cleverly contrasting it with the background. A dark furniture set, maybe a brown sofa set, against sheer white curtains or a light wallpaper shall suffice it all.
We’ve all loved the very famous Queen’s Album A Night at the Opera Song- Bohemian Rhapsody of the 70s. That was the time when this term “Bohemian Rhapsody” became famous. If you go by definition, it simply means an amalgamation of an effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling with a vagabond life. Having a combination of bold boho colours and symmetrical design patterns along with contrasting cushions can help you achieve a balance yet diversified decor, giving your living room a sparingly sleek look. That is what we call, ‘simple yet classy’.
