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.
A key factor of any room is the lighting. You can affect lighting in so many different ways so it is important that you get it right. You have the standard lights that are on the ceiling; you have table lamps and floor lamps. Floor lamps are becoming more popular and the reason for that is their flexibility. You can put them in any area of the room which means that the move them about as you wish.
The more themes you incorporate, the more creative you will have to be but the process is basically the same. It will also depend how similar or different the themes are. Combining some themes like an Asian theme and Zen theme would be easier than a Zen theme with a rock-star theme. The primary task here is to identify the common factor in the living room ideas. For instance, in combing an Asian and Zen theme, you would incorporate a more natural Asian representation like bamboo, jade and the concept of feng shui. You could also incorporate meditation cushions that would be used in Zen lifestyle and simultaneously represents a classic Asian seating arrangement.
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.
Even if you inherited from Aunt Kay and you aren't particularly keen on the style you can invest in slipcovers for the upholstered pieces in a neutral fabric to unify the pieces, then use your creatively through accents.
