There are many ways to decorate your living room. As this is usually the room where a family entertains guests and spends time together, much thought usually goes into the design. Sometimes, however, inspiration is hard to come by. Here are a few living room decorating ideas to help get your creative juices flowing.
Visual Balance. Create a good visual balance between the used and unused spaces. By used space I mean the floor that has been occupied by the furniture pieces. It is not necessary to fill every corner of the living room.’

Choosing furniture. If you want to be able to carefully select each piece of furniture it’s probably best to choose items individually that compliment each other. You may find package deals restrictive and they may only have part of what you want. In this case, make sure you have the colours you want to have in mind and make sure the different pieces work well together. Taking small samples of lounge fabric with you when buying the other room furniture is a good idea to help you match things together.
A slightly larger living room will take kindly to old style Victorian ideas for decorating. You will get a feeling of opulence and richness, especially because of the generally mahogany colors of the furniture. Furnishings and drapes are generally quite heavy and require the use of lining and elaborate methods for pulling the curtains to let in light.
One living room decorating idea that is sure to spice up your space is to choose a bold wall color. Many people shy away from saturated colors, but these are the very hues that can make a dramatic statement about your personality. If you do not want to paint all of the walls in your living room a bold color, you can paint an accent wall. These walls are great to make an impression without overwhelming the room. You can then use accessories to tie the color into the rest of the room.
