Julie Chicoine. Living Room. July 31st , 2017.
Decorating our home has become a labor of love for my wife and I. By far, our favorite room to decorate has been our living room. This space has become the centerpiece of our home, in addition to being the room we spend the most time in. We've used color, a mix of traditional and contemporary furniture, wall art, and eye-catching accessories to create a stylish living room design that is still functional and comfortable. We hope by giving you some ideas from our own living room we'll spur your creativity and point you in the right direction to making your living room your favorite room.
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.
We spend a lot of time in our homes so we all want them to look good. A room where we spend a lot of time is the living room. There is so much that you can do with the living room so it is so easy to think of living room ideas. We will be thinking about these now.
If your chosen themes accommodate one another, you can create a unifying theme. Consider this: your spouse wants an Asian theme, your teenage daughter wants a gothic theme and you want a tropical theme. In such varied combination you may decide to do an around-the-world theme in your living room; this is like a miniature version of Disney's Epcot. You could incorporate Asian tropic plants, dragons and samurai swords that would incorporate all three themes. The point is, regardless of the themes, there is common ground to be found.
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.
