Living Room Decorating Ideas: Three Tips for Color Schemes, Furniture Arrangement and Home Decor

These three simple and easy living room decorating ideas will help you create fun color schemes, comfortable furniture arrangements, as well as stylish home decor in a room where friends and family can gather and feel like they are part of a community.

Living Room Color Scheme

Paint color schemes work best when they complement the size, design style, and atmosphere you want to create in the room. Although a large area allows you to decorate in many colors, it is best to use similar colors on the walls and furniture in small rooms. With a little contrast between the furniture as well as the color of the walls, the furniture blends into the background and the room looks bigger.

Upholster the Walls

Though classic and timeless, this living room by interior designer Kevin Dumais is also having tons of fun. From the red painted ceiling to the velvet floor cushions for extra seating and the bold artwork, no detail is overlooked. To make the room feel even more soft and intimate, Dumais upholstered the walls in a leather fabric.

Often paint colors are associated with a certain design style. Modern furniture looks great in rooms painted in white, beige, gray, sage as well as other neutral colors. Country-style rooms feel comfortable when painted in colors named for things found in nature such as wheat, grass, sky, and apples. These muted colors are perfect for quiet, conservative, as well as serene rooms. Bright, fun tropical colors, relaxed as well as youthful. They work well in areas where you want to encourage a lot of activity.

Have Fun With Throw Pillows

Here’s a lesson in monochromatic decorating with soul. Designed by Studio Razavi, this Parisian apartment is a beautiful blend of modern and Neoclassical style. While the bones of the room evoke a grand sort of opulence, the plush Moroccan rug and spacious white sofa make the space feel more approachable.

Living Room Furniture Ideas

Furniture stores make it easy for you to visualize how furniture will fit in your room. Living room sets displayed on the showroom floor give you decorating ideas how to combine wall colors with home furnishings. Decoration pictures can provide additional inspiration as well as room design ideas.

Consider Your Surroundings

In this modern mountain home designed by architecture firm Studio Razavi, the classic cabin aesthetic gets an upgrade. The plush carpeting and sheepskin throw warm things up while the modern light fixture, streamlined furniture, and neutral colors ensure a calming, laidback, and stylish environment.

Create a comfortable conversation area by placing seats so that people are facing each other from a comfortable distance. It’s easy to create a personal space by placing a lounge chair, window seat, or table in the corner. Try to place furniture near a window where you can soak up the sun during the day or gaze at the stars at night.

Take Advantage of High Ceilings

In this stylish, comfortable, and elevated living room by Romanek Design Studio, the off-white feels bright and airy while also warming things up and bringing it to a human scale (a cool white might be too stark, especially in a large, open room with high ceilings). Accent with soft textures and a few pops of color plus a tall plant or tree for an energizing contrast.

Living Room Decoration

Home decor items are like the icing on the cake. They make an ordinary room come alive with personality. Adding lights, throws, scented candles or some special accessories complete the cozy holiday space in your living room.

Less is more in a small room. Limiting the number of home decor items to a few larger pieces makes a dramatic statement while lots of small accessories often make a small space look smaller.
