Comfortable living room ideas come easy when you allow your decorating style to blossom, resulting in a room you enjoy using whether it's for entertaining with friends or quiet time relaxing with a book. First, choose versatile furnishings and invest in classics when you can that will endure over time.
If you already have lamps then you can just change the lamp shades and this can affect the lighting. Lamp shades are a really cost effective way of doing things. Just keep it simple and experiment with different options.
Country living room ideas should really focus around the mantle and the fireplace. The other pieces should be more neutral with eyelet lace curtains or a tapestry rug. This is a selling feature in your home and it's also a much more traditional focal point than the TV. This can be a warm gathering area whether or not the fireplace is actually in use.
The mantle should really have a rustic edge to it. If you have a traditional piece then try painting it a country kind of color. This would include a red or blue. Stay away from a stark white or black because this is too traditional and modern. You can even just sand down your paint job to really give it that rustic kind of effect. The wood of your mantle is also very important. In this case it should resemble an oak or a weathered kind of wood. Stay away from a more elegant cherry stain. It's also really important to consider what you hang over your mantle. This could be a humorous sign. You could also have a special family photo taken for the occasion. This could be a picture of everyone in cowboy hats. For more of an artistic flair you could just focus in on a line of cowboy boots. This is a way to get a totally unique family portrait that is also a conversation piece.
Lighting is a big deal when it comes to the feel of the room. Subtle changes in the lighting can make big differences. There are lots of ways to do that other than the standard light that you have currently. The easiest way is through lamps, either through table or floor lamps. I prefer floor lamps because you can move them about the house easily and experiment with how they look in different positions.
