Clear Circulation Space. In any home plan whether it is an apartment block or an independent bungalow a person either enters an ”entrance lobby” or directly in the living room (if space is an issue). From this living room entrances open to all other spaces namely kitchen, bedrooms, staircases if any, patios, study rooms, family rooms etc.
The use of traditional materials like bamboo and rattan can also make the central theme for designing the interior of a living room. Once you decide on using such a material, the other decorating and furnishing also seems to be automatically decided. The whole idea is one of following nature and the colors of the furnishing and the walls can follow this general trend. Maintaining this sort of furniture is however slightly problematic, as the surfaces can collect dust and dirt and also create conditions for insects to flourish.

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.’
Keep things simple. When you are planning colours, stick to lighter natural hues. Avoid too many areas of deep colour but do place accents of colour on some smaller items – perhaps on a throw for the sofa, or on the curtains or blinds. Do not let a heavy colour dominate the room.
Furniture. Before selecting the furniture make sure what style you want. It can be Traditional, Contemporary, Victorian, European and mix of two. There is no hard and fast rule of sticking to one style as you can use your own creativity to create the style of your own. Also decide the color scheme in advance as your whole efforts will go waste at the end if there is a big mismatch. Once you have decided that shop for the furniture.
