Fleur Deblois. Living Room. November 11th , 2017.
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.
Consult your color wheel to choose an appropriate color scheme. Keep the colors in the same family unless your theme is rainbow. Sometimes contrast looks awesome. For instance a brightly colored, woven bohemian blanket would pop nicely against a modern, stark white couch.
Another thing that's very important to consider for a country living room is the color of the wall behind the mantle. If you have a smaller fireplace that seems a little bit too modern then just try going with more of a country paint color such as a rustic brown or a natural looking green. Then you can hang a forest print over the fireplace for more of a natural feeling. This can also work well in small spaces because it's almost going to mimic a window but you'll always have a perfect view.
This should also really be the focus of your Christmas decorations. Of course hanging stockings from the mantle is traditional. You could also have a lot of fun just by finding a quilted stocking or even sewing some that are either in red, white, and green colors or just play around with a lot of Christmas motifs like trees or berries.
If you are going out to buy new things then that is a lot more fun. Try to do a bit of research first to find out what styles you like and the types of prices that you will have to pay. This will put you in a much better position when it comes to negotiating.
